Minnesota Opens Online Wine Sales

by Tim Elliott on April 6, 2006

As I blogged last year, there is an important case here in my home state that challenges the protectionist law preventing wineries from directly soliciting and selling over the Internet to Minnesota residents. On Monday, this law was ruled unconstitutional and such direct sales can now begin. This is especially important for small wineries that depend on wine club and web store sales for a large proportion of their sales. It is also a great win for Minnesota wine lovers, like me, who will now have a more convenient way to order our favorite beverage. No more snail mail orders for Pax for me ;-)
