Continuing Legal Education: What Is Wine Law?

Wine For Blondes, an excellent wine reference website, features the following video detailing the particularities of wine law and the development of wine law. The video itself was filmed for a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) session and gives an overview of exactly what wine law in the United States entails. For those On Reserve readers who have questioned the background of wine regulation, constitutionally and otherwise, in the United States, this video is a great reference to learn more about the legal background of wine.

    Nice blog.

    Our FORTcompliance automates direct ship reporting for wineries and retailers, and compliance companies like WineTask.com.

    Also, here’s a useful resource on Maryland:
    MBBWL was formed in 2005 to advocate for beer & wine laws that:
    1) benefit consumers;
    2) promote competition;
    3) protect the environment; and
    4) support Maryland’s brewers and wineries.

    Thank you so much for your comment; I will definitely look into the information on wine laws in Maryland for an upcoming article. I will also be sure to read up more about your company.

    Thanks again!
