Franchot Places Local Winery's First Direct Ship Order
An article entitled Franchot Places Local Winery's First Direct Ship Order on the Cockeysville Patch about the beginning of the new direct shipment law.
New laws went into effect today that allow Maryland wineries to ship their products out of state, and Maryland consumers to have wine from other states shipped to their doorstep.

Maryland State Comptroller Peter Franchot was one of the first to take advantage of a new Maryland state law that allows wineries to send their wares to consumers through the mail.
The new law also allows consumers to have wine from other states sent straight to their doorstep.
Franchot visited Boordy Vineyards on Long Green Pike in Hydes Friday morning to place a historic order for a bottle each of reserve chardonnay and a 'landmark reserve' red wine.
The bottles will ship to Franchot's home through UPS.
