Florida Shipping Threatened

Dear FWWS Member,

Linked below is an alert from regarding a proposed law restricting direct shipment of wine in Florida. We are alarmed that this potentially devastating law has gotten as far as it has. Florida is presently one of the best places in the country to ship wine. No permit is required, and you need file and pay taxes only in the month following the months you actually ship wine. Florida is also the fourth most populous state in the country and inevitably poised to take the number three spot from New York. This is a very serious threat to the right of self distribution and to consumer choice. We urge you to forward the sample letter in the alert below to your Florida customers immediately.
