Legislators to Discuss Relaxing Wine-Shipping Laws
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota legislators are hammering out the details of potential legislation that could allow for consumer-direct wine shipping in the state.
The Alcoholic Beverage Shipping and Distribution committee will meet in Pierre on Tuesday. Committee lawmakers will discuss whether to bring a bill to the full Legislature that would allow residents to get their favorite vintages shipped to them directly from wineries.
South Dakota is one of nine states that doesn’t allow residents consumer-direct wine shipping.
One potential bill was drafted earlier this summer that would relax wine-shipping laws, but advocates said it was too restrictive.
