An Interview with Tom Wark of the National Association of Wine Retailers (NAWR)
On Wednesday, May 17th BevSites hosted a webinar interview with Tom Wark, one of the foremost experts in all matters regarding the interstate shipping of wine.
For those not familiar with Tom he leads a group called The National Association of Wine Retailers (NAWR) that advocates for wine retailers specifically when it comes interstate shipping legislation.
(Run-time is 55 minutes).
Topics covered include
* Where wine retailers legally are permitted to ship (provided they're in a state where they're permitted to ship out).
* Which states are actively enforcing their legislation against out-of-state retailers.
* Current key legal battlegrounds--particularly NY state.
* A discussion on why retailers should support legislation that would permit out-of-state retailers shipping into their market (with some direct comments about NY again).
