Maryland wine drinkers hope for reform in wake of ruling on Mass. winery shipping laws

  

Posted: January 20th, 2010

The laws, they are a-changin’. Amid possible legal reform in Massachusetts, which ruled that restricting the sale of wines directly to consumers from out-of-state wineries was unconstitutional, the Washington Post recently tackled the same issue facing Maryland. Passionate wine drinkers want to get their hands on lesser-represented, boutique wines and they don’t want the state to interfere with this. It will be interesting to see if more states adjust their laws in the wake of Massachusetts reform and larger media coverage of the issue.
