The Connecticut Direct Shipping Law has been slightly altered. Wineries with an approved Out-Of-State Wine Shipper’s Permit will be able to ship up to 5 gallons (twenty-five 750 ml bottles) to a consumer every 2 months instead of every 60 days. The change becomes effective October 1, 2007 and should make it easier for wineries to track consumer aggregate volume limits. Under the new law a winery that ships 5 gallons of wine to a consumer on October 12, 2007 cannot ship wine to the same consumer until December 13, 2007. No other Connecticut direct shipping regulations have been changed in any way. Information about how to apply for a CT Out-Of-State Wine Shipper’s Permit is available on the Wine Institute website.
