Wine Sales

Alabama and Florida are two of 24 states that will have to review its laws banning out-of-state shipments of wine as the result of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

The court ruled people can buy wine directly from out-of-state vineyards.

The decision strikes down laws in New York and Michigan banning a practice that has flourished because of the internet and growing popularity of winery tours.

The court said the state bans are discriminatory and anticompetitive.

The decision also means that legislatures in the other 22 states that have such bans will have to review their laws.

But Florida Gov. Jeb bush says the hand writing's on the wall. As he puts it "It appears Floridians will be able to purchase wine from California without having to go through the wholesale system."
