One good piece of fallout from the May 16 Supreme Court decision on interstate wine shipment is New York’s new rule allowing wineries to ship to out of state customers. Happily, this law consequently allows New York customers to receive wine shipments from other states.
Sadly, the news is not so sanguine in Michigan, where the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association wields sufficient political clout to threaten putting the state under a virtual wine commerce lockdown. Michigan wineries can’t be happy about that (and yes, there are some good Michigan wines!); neither can Michigan wine enthusiasts.
