TRENTON – A bill to permit direct shipping by New Jersey wineries has been signed into law. The new law (A-4436), which was approved 51-18-4 by the Assembly last week, revises the statutes governing the sale and distribution of products by New Jersey wineries and creates a new out-of-state winery license governing New Jersey sales by wineries licensed elsewhere.
“This law is good news for consumers and businesses alike,” said Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), a sponsor of the bill. “It’s a carefully crafted plan that ensures our wine industry can become a key economic engine for our state while protecting the local liquor stores and the many jobs they provide our state. It’s a long overdue plan to modernize our laws to meet the reality of how consumers now shop.”
