May 31, 2019

A bill that would have allowed Alabama residents to buy wine and have it shipped to their house has failed, Steve Gross, vice president of State Relations at Wine Institute, said Thursday. The bills was among those Gross discussed during his keynote address at the 2019 ShipCompliant Wine Summit in Napa. Alabama is one of five states that does not allow direct shipping. The other states are Delaware, Mississippi, Kentucky and Utah.
