Kentucky Consumers benefit.
Changing existing law will give consumers many new choices when it comes to buying wine to consume with dinner. Kentucky consumers do not have as many choices as neighboring states. Yet, changing the law will not require any change to the existing trade channel distribution system. As one of only 16 states prohibiting wine sales in food stores, the Commonwealth is forfeiting much needed tax revenue. It's estimated that in the first five years alone, added tax revenue would be83 million dollars. It’s time to give Kentucky farmers a boost and Kentucky consumers a choice—please join us to allow the sale of wine in food stores.
