Sunny Shines On Georgia Wine-rs

You might recall I blogged about a bill being introduced to the GA legislature over a year ago to allow direct wine shipments into the State.

Earlier this week, Governor Sunny Perdue signed House Bill 1061 which allows wineries to ship wine directly to Georgians provided they have a “special order” shipping license from the State ($50 per year). With this license, wineries will be allowed to ship up to 12 standard cases of wine brand labels submitted to the State to an individual consumer over the course of a year.

In addition, the holder of a special order shipping license must require proper age verification for the consumer placing the order. Age may be verified by physical examination of government issued ID or by using an Internet based age and identification service.

The law takes effect July 1, 2008.
