Free the Grapes

Massachusetts has ridiculous laws around direct shipment of wines into the Commonwealth.

For those of you that do not live here, the it is very difficult to get wines shipped here. In the realm of every day life it is not that big of a deal. So short of driving to New Hampshire to get something different that has not been marked up 20% one's options are limited.

There are a few wineries that have paid the fees and gone through the permitting process to be able to ship to Massachusetts. I have added a list of wineries that are able to ship to Massachusetts to the site. Some of these wines are pretty expensive but I would encourage everyone to buy at least one bottle from any of these wineries. Let them know that there efforts are noticed and appreciated!

Thanks for letting wine lovers know about Free the Grapes. We'd love to have people drop by our site, where they can send a ltr to their state legislators, get info, sign up for an email list, etc. Hopefully we'll have good news on the lawsuit challenging MA's crazy law.
