Legislation would help Alabama wineries

Alabama's wineries are asking wine lovers to support a bill in the state legislature they say would help Alabama Wineries become more economically viable and help them provide a greater guest experience, with expanded and better events, a greater wine selection, and a greater wine availability of Alabama wines at your local retailer.

As of today, the bill has been read once in Legislative Committee, and the bill needs to get passed out of the Montgomery State House and off to the State Senate.
