Overturning the laws in states that allow in-state wineries to ship directly to consumers, but not out of state wineries. It's about time too. People who visit wine producing states, such as California, are often shocked when they find they cannot ship any back to their home state. This ruling affects eight states, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Indiana, and Florida, which had laws on the books allowing in-state wineries only to sell directly to consumers. This leaves just fifteeen states that don't allow any direct sale to consumers.
These stupid laws have frustrated me for years, being unable to ship to MI or FL where all my relatives are. There are literally hundreds of small wineries in CA that have no presence outside of their local clientele, often selling only from the winery. This is a huge victory for them and for everyone who loves a good glass of wine.
