A Paducah area winery can now sell alcohol on Sundays. Purple Toad Winery received enough votes in a Lone Oak precinct election. 

Voters determined whether 'small farm wineries' like Purple Toad can sell their product between the hours of 1 and 10 p.m. 

59 people voted in favor of and 23 voted against Sunday sales, according to the winery's Facebook page. It will take 45 days to get the State license to start selling. This is the only business in the precinct affected by the vote.

Last November, the winery turned in a petition after collecting the required amount of signatures, allowing for the vote. 

Owner Allen Dossey said Sunday sales account for approximately 20-30 percent of a winery's revenue.
