What Clients Are Saying About Us


We’ve worked with Baril since 2010. Great group of people. It’s so nice to leave the complexities of compliance in their capable hands. 
Cori Curtola Gormley (707) 745-3649


Elise Baril and her team do a phenomenal job of managing the complex and ever-changing, regulatory landscape for their clients. They are knowledgeable, proactive, and a pleasure to work with. We wouldn’t trust our compliance process to anyone else.

Gayle Dargon (831)-636-1991


In January 2011 we urgently needed licenses in all states, after leaving our marketing company. Elise Baril and her team methodically and swiftly worked as partners with us to secure and maintain supplier and brand compliance in each market. Whenever we have a compliance question they are quick to respond and assist. I highly recommend their services.
Andrea Slichter (425) 481-5502


Navigating the choppy, dark and dangerous waters of compliance is not our idea of a good time. Knowing that our compliance, and all the paperwork that goes along with it, is in the capable and friendly hands of Baril Compliance Service is of paramount importance to us. They keep us on target and on track. They are creative and efficient, communicative and responsive. What more could you want from your compliance services company?

Toad Hollow Vineyards has used BCS since 1994 to do our wine compliance. We have nothing but praise for the competence and professionalism shown by Elise and her associates.

By using BCS we have been able to concentrate on marketing and have kept our payroll down thanks to not having to hire in-house compliance employees. We highly recommend BCS to any winery needing assistance in the compliance field for ABC, TTB, wholesale or direct to consumer.

Erik Thorson (707) 431-1441


As the national market for Epic Wines' has grown, so has our enthusiasm over the terrific service we've received from Elise and her staff. I often comment that the monthly fees we pay for wine compliance are the greatest bargain going. It would be impossible for us to hire in-house staffing for anywhere close to their monthly fee. Aside from the cost-savings, the expertise is unsurpassed; we have used other compliance services in the past and have found BCS to be the most informative, helpful and cost-effective.

Jane Prough (800) 322-3742


My company approached Elise to handle a transfer of our alternating premise from one location to another. We had a great number of issues that went beyond the normal change-over for this ABC compliance/TTB compliance job.  I was extremely impressed with the extra mile that Elise's team went to get us set with the TTB/ABC. While they had no idea what they were getting into, they handled every obstacle quickly and with supreme professionalism. The follow-up was the most impressive and I can honestly say I can think of no other group of wine professionals who could have done a better job. We are grateful to have had their services at our disposal. Top notch folks!

Hunter Vogel (415) 377-2710


I find Elise's wine compliance services invaluable for wholesale and direct shipping. She takes care of the details that I, frankly, can never find time for. And she does it efficiently, economically, and this is the best bit - cheerfully! She's great. Since 1995.

Don Weaver (707) 944-1441


I love to brag about our use of BCS, because they are absolutely, unconditionally, the final word on great winery compliance work for wholesale and direct shipping! Elise and her Team are experts on keeping all of our needs in good order. They do it with very cost-effective rates, with patience, with timely reminders, and with a smile, since 2006. You can't ask for more than that!!

Oded Shakked (707) 433-3473


After a couple of early mis-starts we found Elise and her company and have been with them ever since; well into our second decade. You don’t stay with someone for that long unless you are getting good service. Ours has been great service; prompt, professional and understanding. Lots of people can execute most of the time but Elise and company do it day in and day out; period.


BCS has been doing our winery compliance exclusively since June 1995. She is expert, professional, reasonably priced and easy to work with. As a growing family-based winery, we don't have time to handle all of our own compliance. Elise's team has helped us to keep up the details of our compliance needs.

Milla Handley (707) 895-2190


I have worked directly with Elise and her team for many years, both in my role as Managing Director of Swanson Vineyards and as General Manager of Cliff Lede Vineyards/S. Anderson Vineyard. Their work is unfailingly accurate and timely. Wine compliance and regulatory paperwork is done right the first time. I can recommend Elise without hesitation.

Michael Updegraff (800) 428-2259


I've had the pleasure of doing business with BCS since 1998. Everyone in the office is always friendly, efficient and accommodating. BCS has made sure new brand lines are out on time with no loss of sales, and respond to requests quickly. Well worth the monthly fee.

Colette Benge 707) 224-9601


Starting with the first day I had contact with BCS, each telephone call to your company impressed me. You and your staff are professionals in the old school sense. I was always greeted with politeness and no question asked was ignored. Thank you for your assistance, and for making the wine compliance portion of my responsibilities so easy.

Argene Giorgi (415) 752-8793


As a wholesaler in today's marketplace it gives me peace of mind to know that there are people and companies out there like BCS doing wine shipping compliance. We have worked on many projects together over the years and BCS has always maintained a very professional relationship with us. Their level of service is above and beyond what you would expect. I look forward to working with Elise and the team for many years to come.

Tom Blando (816) 876-2151


BCS is exceptionally good at what they do. Our winery never has to worry about time consuming licensing, approvals, renewals and taxes. BCS takes care of it all (wholesale and direct to consumer wine shipping compliance) since 2003. We would be lost without them.

Jen Heim (707) 287-6391


We have been utilizing BCS since January 2008. They have grown to be a valuable and consistent resource in helping organize and manage the complexities of state brand registration and winery compliance. Elise and her team have a clear understanding of our customer service needs and are committed trained professionals. We would recommend BCS to any winery large or small.

Margaret Hill (707) 968-3226


BCS is much more than a wine compliance service, but a team which is able to integrate itself to our organization and understand our needs by providing ideal support & professionalism. Each and every one of the BCS team lives up to this reputation "It's like the co-worker you can't do without!" Since 2008.

Carmine DeGennaro (718) 353-8700


Matt and I have been working with BCS for since 2000. The staff is very knowledgeable and efficient and will help you navigate through the laborious job of wine compliance. BCS understands the importance of customer service. The staff is friendly, professional, and can address your questions or concerns immediately. It gives us piece of mind that our monthly reporting is in good hands.

Matt and Erin Cline (707) 933-9752


I have worked with Elise Baril and BCS since 2003 at three wineries. We chose BCS at Rosenblum Cellars after performing a thorough search among many wine compliance service candidates. When I arrived at Kuleto Estate, I called BCS in the first month. And now as an independent consultant, I was pleasantly surprised to find BCS already in place at Leonhardt Vineyards. 

I can't begin to describe how valuable and effective Elise Baril and her team are. At all three companies, they helped us assess our wine compliance situation, corrected our compliance problems across all states, and got us new direct shipping permits as states like NY, FL and TX came available. Each year working with Elise and her company, I continue to be impressed with Elise and her firm's professionalism, customer service, and knowledge.

Timothy Allen (707) 968-5089


Baril Compliance worked closely with our company in completing all the CA ABC and TTB forms, communication with CA ABC and TTB, and in our obtaining bonds for our winery license. Their professional mannerisms with us and the regulators helped significantly. If not for the gentle, but constant push to the regulators, we would not have obtained our winery license in a reasonable period of time. They are consummate professionals to work with, and “thorough follow up” is automatic for them. They have a strong working knowledge of all licensing and other requirements, such as labeling and Federal & State reporting requirements. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Mark Caporale (707) 287-0171


Oakville Ranch and BCS have been working together since 2010. Thank you for being a kick-ass company to work with over the years!! 
Shelia Gentry (707) 944-9665 


Baril Compliance is a key partner for JARDESCA. I have had the pleasure of working with Baril for a number of years and when it came time for my partners and I to launch our own brand and obtain our TTB and CA ABC permits, there was no question who we would call for our compliance needs.Compliance is a part of the business where you absolutely need a partner you can trust, and Baril has been JARDESCA’s partner from day one.  Whether we need help with Direct to Consumer, Wholesale or other compliance services, Baril has always been attentive and reliable.

Marcus Seiden (707) 508-7778


We built and opened a new 5000 ton custom crush facility for the 2014 harvest in less than 9 months. It was a fast and furious project and we were looking for help anywhere we could find it. The staff at Baril Compliance Service was brought on to handle all of our startup compliance for CA ABC and TTB licensing. They assured me that they could complete the process under the deadline and they did, with ease. Their team was efficient, knowledgeable, professional and the price was hard to beat. It was a great experience!

Heath Dolan (707) 799-2852 


I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I tried doing the CA ABC and TTB paperwork myself and found myself spinning in circles. I reached out to BCS for help.  They did an amazing job accomplishing the first set of CA ABC and TTB permits I needed. A year later I moved and everything about my business changed. I reached out again and within my frustration of government agencies lacking the necessary staff to handle all the requests, BCS and especially Teri Molini went the extra mile for me. It was grounding to know that someone was on my team!
