Tennessee: The battle continues…

The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds the Tennessee ban on direct wine shipping. There is a nice summary of the decision in Forbes. Tennessee laws are archaic and confusing and in fairness the court’s hands were tied in this one because the law didn’t violate Granholm. The good news is this case has brought the issue to the forefront and advocates in the Tennessee legislature will review the current alcohol laws. The bad news is the Tennessee wholesalers have a lot of sway with the legislature. I suspect not much will change soon. If you know anyone in Memphis, tell them to keep enjoying their Chablis from the five gallon jug.
