Satellite cellar door - Queensland


Form 4: Application for acceptance of new nominee/s

Credit card payment authority form

If you hold a wine producer licence, you may apply for a satellite cellar door to sell or give away your wine on other premises.

Trading conditions

If a satellite cellar door is approved, the licensee's wine may be sold to patrons:

  • for tasting on the premises as a sample only
  • to take away from the premises in sealed containers
  • with approval, for consumption on the premises other than as a sample.

As a condition of the licence, the licensee may be allowed to sell wine other than the licensee's wine at the satellite cellar door:

  • for consumption on the licensed premises; and
  • for consumption off the licensed premises, but only if the sales do not exceed the sales of the licensee's wine (e.g. no more then 49% of annual sales).

Financial arrangements

Proceeds of the sale of wine must be banked to the benefit of the licensee and not the operator of another business.


The licensee must nominate an adult to be a wine nominee at the satellite cellar door. A wine producer with more than one satellite cellar door must have a specific nominee for each place.

Trading hours

The standard trading hours for a satellite cellar door are 8am to midnight, Monday to Sunday.

No wine may be sold or supplied on Good Friday, Christmas Day and prior to 1pm on Anzac Day unless an extended trading hours permit is obtained for this purpose.

A licensee may apply to extend the trading hours during which the licensee is authorised to sell wine at the satellite cellar door, either on a permanent/regular basis or for one-off occasions.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
