Wine in Kentucky


A federal judge rules out-of-state wineries can ship their goods into Kentucky.

The ruling upholds a state law set to take effect in January. That means wineries in other states that are licensed in Kentucky can start shipping wine across state lines next week.

The ruling came after a lawsuit was filed by an Oregon winery. The suit claimed Kentucky’s law violated the commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution by giving preference to Kentucky businesses over out-of-state merchants.
