New York State Mega Wine Wholesalers Support At-Rest Bill that would Hurt Small Distributors

Primary tabs

NY State's largest distributors are supporting a bill that would amend the New York State Alcoholic Beverage Control laws to include an "AT-REST" provision that would make all out-of-state suppliers and distributors shipping wine into New York State store the wine for 48 hours in a facility within the state before it can be delivered to the retail store or restaurant. This would cripple small distributors and raise the cost of all wines, as well as lessen the choices given to consumers. Attached is a letter that you can download and send to your state Senator to urge them not to enact this ammendment. You may also sign a petition at
