Maryland’s House Bill 716 – Direct Wine Shipping

A blog posting on Wine Trail Traveler about submitting written testimony for the direct wine shipping bill:

Maryland’s House Bill 716 – Direct Wine Shipping

Wednesday, 3. March 2010

Yesterday I wrote about the direct shipping bill in Maryland. This week is very important and anyone can submit written testimony on the bill. Written testimony must be received by Thursday at 12pm. No matter what state you live in, if you are experiencing successes with direct shipping please add your support to the proponents of Maryland’s House Bill 716. Shouldn’t residents of Maryland have the same rights that many other US residents have? If you have visited wineries in other states and enjoyed their wines wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have the wine shipped directly to your home?

For details on supplying written or oral testimony, visit this page on the Marylanders for Better Beer and Wine Laws. Maryland consumers can use your help. If you have questions contact Jennifer Levy, Director of Legislative Affairs for MBBWL, at

Cheers! Kathy
