Delaware: Support Complete Winery Direct Shipping
Remove the Ban, Then Support HB165 in the Senate

Update: June 11, 2018

Dear Delaware Wine Lovers,

On June 7, the House passed HB 165, signaling its support for bringing legal, regulated winery-to-consumer shipping to Delaware. Unfortunately, the bill continues to include a provision banning shipments from wines listed by the state for sale in DE. Of course, a listing does not necessarily mean you can actually find a wine in a retail store.  

Our mission is to expand consumer choice in wine by supporting workable bills; unfortunately, HB 165 is not workable in its current form. However, we want to continue supporting an amendment to HB 165 as it is considered in the Senate.  

ACTIONS

  1. Email Your Legislators. Continue to voice support for complete winery direct shipping by taking 2 minutes to personalize our updated sample message, below, which will be sent automatically to your legislators (so you don’t have to look this up).   
  2. Spread the word. Tell your friends about us on Facebook and share our page, Facebook.com/freethegrapes

This is the first time that Delaware's House Representatives have passsed a winery direct shipping bill. Let's continue to support House Bill 165 without the prohibition against shipping wines already sold by Delaware wholesalers. We believe consumers, not special interests, should decide which wines you can buy and how you purchase them.

Thanks again for your continued support.

Free the Grapes!
