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allow direct wine shipment and the Free State Wine Project fully supports MBBWL in the fight to overturn Maryland’s outdated wine for the benefit of our fledgling state wine industry.
