Subject: Public Comment on Wine Shipping
I wanted to weigh in with my opinion on the issue of interstate shipment of wine. The reason there is so much resistance to this topic is really about protecting monopolies. Wine retailers like our company require signatures on packages (which is REQUIRED and enforced by UPS and FedEx) and we collect taxes as required. This counters all the puffery about shipping to minors, tax evasion, etc.
