Liquor Wholesalers in Congress Want to Ban Wine Shipments

Donnerstag 20. Mai 2010 von htm

The threat of underage drinking and overconsumption of alcohol are among the reasons cited by backers of a bill in Congress that would ban direct shipments of wine to consumers. Skeptics said the real reason for the measure is that alcohol distributors want to protect a lucrative part of their business.
Currently, 38 states allow at least some wine to be shipped directly to consumers. Wineries have supported such legislation at the state level. „This is an anti-consumer bill,“ said Marty Clubb, owner of the L’Ecole No. 41 winery in Lowden, Wash. „This is about wholesalers trying to entrench their monopoly.“ (Source: Join Together, 5/19/10)
