Free The Grapes!

shacklesI stumbled across a great organization dedicated to breaking the stronghold distributors have on our antiquated wine shipping laws.  Free The Grapes! is a grassroots effort that seems to focus on wineries, but recognizes that retailers are constrained as well. If you sign up for their email list, they will keep you up to date when shipping laws are up for debate in your state.  They also have a great mascot named Shackles.

A great deal of shipping news has been appearing on as of late; none have contained good news.  Michigan and Illinois both seem to be moving in the wrong direction.
