Good news for Michigan and New York wine lovers

Susan Crawford (no relation) posts on a Supreme Court decision (and provides the PDF of the 73-page decision itself) that strikes down Michigan’s and New York’s ban on direct shipment of wine by out-of-state wineries–given that in-state wineries are permitted to ship directly to consumers.

That still doesn’t take care of states that forbid all direct shipment of wine; that’s another case, and might be tougher to win.

Primary benefits: Consumers get wider variety, access to boutique wineries, and probably lower prices.
