Michigan Governor Signs Bill Limiting Out-of-State Wine Deliveries to Retailers

Legislation was recently signed by Governor Rick Snyder to allow Michigan stores to ship wine directly to in-state customers using carriers such as FedEx or UPS, however out-of-state retailers will be banned from sending beer and wine directly to Michigan customers. Customers will still be allowed to receive wine shipped directly from wineries. Under the new law, the carriers will now be required to submit quarterly reports about each delivery. Beer and Wine wholesalers say the law, that was enacted Monday, will crack down on illegal wine shipments from online wine retailers and “wine clubs”.
