Congress crushing your wine consumption?

Brynn writes:

I follow a blog that offers daily tidbits on wine and today’s e-newsletter quickly caught my attention when it said there’s a bill before Congress that could prohibit the direct sale and shipping of wine from wineries to you, the consumer.

I’m not familiar with the bill, so I don’t want to try and act like I know what I’m talking about, but the New York Times recently ran an Op-Ed piece about the bill written by wine blogger David White.

White explains what this bill could mean to local wine drinkers — especially those of you who love to order wines from out of state, say from that favorite winery you recently visted while on a trip Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

The article is an opinion piece, and White is cleary against the proposed bill, which he says would hurt the wineries and benefit the wholesale liquor industry.
