Yay For New York!

New York has passed a law authorizing direct shipment of out-of-state wine to New York consumers. It has been described in the wine industry as "the most liberal direct-shipment law in the country."

The legislation (which Pataki has been pushing for years) was prompted by this year's Supreme Court's decision striking down state restrictions on direct ordering wines from out-of-state wineries.

The Supreme Court held that states like NY either had to let all wineries sell directly to consumers or block all shipments. I'm glad to report that NY made the right choice.
