Kentucky: House Bill 415 on Governor's Desk

Updated April 6, 2020

Dear Wine Lovers of Kentucky,

House bill 415, a favorable direct shipping bill that came out of a 2019 study committee, has now passed the House and Senate and is, as of March 26, on the Governor’s desk. The bill would allow direct shipments from wineries and distilleries. Some of the details of the bill are not yet known, but we will be sure to pass along an update. Of course, we are hoping that the Governor signs the bill into law.

Once again, thanks to all of you who supported legal, regulated direct wine shipments by writing your state legislators. As of this writing, Kentucky is one of only five states with an archaic ban on winery-to-consumer direct shipments.
