New Yorkers To Get Wine Shipped Direct!
It looks official. The State of New York, after being told by the Supreme Court that their direct shipping laws were discriminatory and unconstitutional, will send a bill to the governor’s desk that opens the State to direct shipping of wine to consumers.
Of course this is great news both for consumers and wineries. But it’s also important for another reason.
New York’s partner in the Supreme Court case was Michigan, where legislators will grapple with two bills, one shutting down all direct shipping of wine and another opening up Michigan to direct shipping. The New York solution will be influential up in Lansing as legislators look to see how New York chose to handle the Supreme Court ruling.
