Georgia Starts Selling Wine Online July 1

So I see in Meeting The Sin Laws Blog's Georgia's wine sales to go online:

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports here that, "[s]tarting July 1, Georgia residents can have any winery ship to them up to 12 cases a year as long as someone 21 or older signs for the shipment." Awesome! Because shipments to the front door were previously off-limits, leaving hard-to-find bottles and wines not represented by local distributors out of reach, this measure is sure to help Georgia's upstart wineries.
Reading this excerpt makes me think that Georgia wineries have an easier time selling online than may Indiana wineries. About Indiana's laws, take a look at my posts here and here.

I suggest giving all of Meeting The Sin Laws Blog a read if you like to read about First Amendment rights and similar issues.
