Free the Grapes!

Link - Free the Grapes is a coalition of wineries and consumers that advocates for legal direct shipments of wine. States have widely disparate laws that make it difficult for consumers and wineries to know what is legal. This week, the U.S. Supreme Court is to hear arguments in three cases on whether such laws are an unconstitutional barrier to interstate commerce or are allowed under the 21st Amendment, which repealed Prohibition but left states with broad powers to regulate alcohol. (Mississippi is one of 24 states that prohibit the shipment of wine directly to consumers.)
