WineAmerica’s National Wine Policy Bulletin is a summary of legislation and trends directly from the local sources. Each month we compile a digest of federal and regional issues, contributed by our State Associations Council and sent to our nationwide membership. The National Wine Policy Bulletin is your nationwide snapshot of wine policy through the eyes WineAmerica here in Washington, DC and from local players around the country.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has issued a rule change regarding how some wineries will be able to file their excise tax. Depending on size and production scale, some may be able to start filing annually as opposed to semi-monthly or quarterly. Congress is in the midst of debating several bills which could change how cider is defined and how craft beer is taxed. On the state level, South Dakota and Oklahoma have taken substantive steps towards the direct-shipping of wine and California has taken a stand against Canadian protectionist policies.
