Seriously, why is that?

From the Marylanders for Better Beer and Wine Laws (MBBWL):

We are holding a press conference on Wednesday at 3PM in Annapolis to celebrate a majority of both the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate co-sponsoring our bill.  We’d love for you to be there.  Here are the details:

May 2010 be our vintage!

Tastefully yours,

Adam Borden
Executive Director
Marylanders for Better Beer & Wine Laws

For anyone out of the loop on this issue, Maryland law prohibits the direct shipment of wine within the state. This hurts both consumers, who are unable to purchase wine over the internet, and Maryland wineries looking to ship to consumers in other states. Many other states allow direct wine shipment and the Free State Wine Project fully supports MBBWL in the fight to overturn Maryland’s outdated wine for the benefit of our fledgling state wine industry.

Cheers,
