Proposal Would Allow Direct Wine Sales in South Dakota

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Proposed legislation in South Dakota would allow residents to have wine delivered directly to their homes. But it comes with several restrictions.

South Dakota is one of only a few states that don’t allow alcohol shipments to private residences. Wineries and consumers have pushed to change the law in recent years but with little success because of opposition from retailers and wholesalers.

The Argus Leader newspaper reports that representatives of the state’s alcohol retailers and a major wholesaler have crafted a compromise bill. It would allow direct wine shipments but is targeted at vintages that currently aren’t distributed in the state.

Advocates of direct wine shipments say the proposal might be too restrictive.

Lawmakers will be studying the proposal before deciding whether the 2015 Legislature will consider it.
