News From the Front

Thomas over at the Oklahoma Wine News has an excellent post about the wholesalers attempt to kill that state’s growing wine industry by taking away their rights to sell direct to retailers and restaurants.

If you are a winery owner and are not yet having to fight this battle yet you probably should start gearig up. The fight is coming to a legislature near you, and soon.

    Thanks for the link, Tom!
    I have a feeling that if wine consumers don’t voice their views to their elected leaders ASAP, they can expect some shocking new legislation this year.
    All over America the distributors and their lobby have shifted their efforts to the state level and are probably lathering up a senator near you right now.
