Bigger Wine Selection Coming to State Stores?
From the bowels of the Northwest Office Building in Harrisburg comes a regulatory tweak that might persuade better wineries to sell in state stores.
The Liquor Control Board has eliminated the requirement that licensed Limited Wineries (wineries that can produce up to 200,000 gallons per year) sell their product at wineries or satellite stores for no less than the retailprice at state stores.
LCB spokeswoman Stacy Kriedeman says that’s important because until now, wineries would have to sell product to the LCB at a significant discount to meet the old requirement.
Great news all around, this is, if you’re willing to trade lower prices for better quality. Though who knows how the bootlegger community feels about this.
