Michigan residents soon may be able to have their favorite California red or Oregon white delivered at home.
The state House voted today to approve legislation that would allow in-state and out-of-state wineries to ship up to 15-hundred cases of wine a year directly to consumers. The bill now goes to Governor Granholm.
A state law ruled unconstitutional earlier this year by the U-S Supreme Court prohibited residents from having wine from out-of-state vintners directly shipped to consumers.
The legislation is drawing fire from some advocates for the state's wine industry.
They are worried because in-state wineries would have to use wholesalers to distribute their wine to restaurants and stores if the law is declared unconstitutional. Right now, they can self-distribute wine to those retailers.
