Wine Shipments Up – Interstate Shipments to Thank?

We should probably call this the legacy of Granholm, but the industry will need to see if it lasts.  Our fellow blogger and IP law guru, David Ter Molen – who runs a great blog over at The Food Identity Blog forwarded us this recent piece from Food Manufacturing about consumer trends in wine.  This one is interesting to anyone looking to get their beverages (be they wine or not) authorized for out of state shipment without the need to go through some other state’s wholesalers.

Many marketers focused on new opportunities in the direct-to-consumer channel as the number of states that now accept these shipments has expanded to 39, and apps and other technologies have made it easier for consumers to use these online options…

Simply stated, California wine shipments are up 5.6 percent in volume compared to last year.  This is an all time high and there’s little doubt that a portion of this success comes from the lessening of the regulations on interstate shipments.

Ashley Brandt

Hi there! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Ashley Brandt and I’m an attorney in Chicago representing clients in the Food and Beverage, Advertising, Media, and Real Estate industries. A while back I kept getting calls and questions from industry professionals and attorneys looking for advice and information on a fun and unique area of law that I’m lucky enough to practice in. These calls represented a serious lack of, and need for, some answers, news, and information on the legal aspects of marketing and media. I've got this deep seeded belief that information should be readily available and that the greatest benefit from the information age is open access to knowledge... so ... this blog seemed like the best way to accomplish that. I enjoy being an attorney and it’s given me some amazing opportunities, wonderful experiences, and an appreciation and love for this work. I live in Chicago and work at an exceptional law firm, Goldstein & McClintock, with some truly brilliant people. Feel free to contact me at any time with any issues, comments, concerns… frankly, after reading this far, I hope you take the time to at least let me know what you think about the blog and how I can make it a better resource.
