Wines & Vines posted an interesting article on immigration and labor law in the wine industry. The article muses about particular growing issues the industry faces from a contemporary standpoint. Such issues were discussed at the 2011 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, California. This article is particularly thoughtful, as immigration is a strong issue in many American political agendas, but does not reverberate as strongly in the wine industry. (The legal issues that receive more attention with respect to the wine industry are usually direct shipment laws, trademark and intellectual property rights, wine trade, and fraud.) As part of the exploration about wine law, this article is highly recommended and is accessible at Wines & Vines: Vineyard Labor and the Law.
