Indiana: Help Remove the Winery Lockout!
Update: January 18, 2018
Dear Indiana Wine Lovers,
Help us end the “winery lockout.”
As you may know, Indiana is one of 44 states that allow legal direct to consumer shipments from licensed wineries. But the Hoosier State stands out from the other 43 states in one important and anti-competitive way: wineries must choose either to sell their wines through wholesaler middlemen, or directly to consumers, but not both. The wholesaler-winery relationship is an important one as it is the only way a winery can sell their wines to Indiana’s restaurants and liquor stores
In the end, guess who loses? You!
Indiana’s wine lovers continue to be denied a wide choice in wines to purchase because of this winery lockout law. So it is no surprise that Indiana also has the fewest number of direct winery licensees of any state that permits direct wine shipping (330 as of this writing).
Now there’s an easy fix for the state legislature to make. And we need your help to let them know.
