New York: February 2019 Update on Retailer Shipping

Update: February 8, 2019

Dear Wine Lovers of New York,

As you probably know, New York currently allows winery-to-consumer shipments but prohibits direct shipments from out of state retailers to New Yorkers.

Legislation was introduced in 2018 that would have overturned the existing ban and allow licensed out-of-state retailers to ship directly to New York consumers but the bills died with the adjournment of the legislative session. This year, a new bill has been introduced (Assembly Bill 494, sponsored by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin) and we will provide an update as it becomes available. Our hope is that a companion bill in the Senate will also be introduced, improving our chances for progress.
