   19  the premises. The partially consumed bottle of wine shall be

   22  subsequently opened or tampered with, and a dated receipt for
   23  the bottle of wine and full course meal shall be provided by the
   24  licensee and attached to the container. If transported in a
   25  motor vehicle, the container with the resealed bottle of wine
   26  must be placed in a locked glove compartment, a locked trunk, or
   27  the area behind the last upright seat of a motor vehicle that is
   28  not equipped with a trunk.
