Washington grades high for access to wine

Metro

WASHINGTON STATE – The American Wine Consumer Coalition gives Washington a high grade in its annual Wine Consumer State-by-State Report Card.

Washington is ranked 15th in the nation for consumer access to wine, getting a grade of B-minus.

The coalition says Washington wine consumers enjoy laws that are relatively friendly to their interests, with the exception of a ban on retailer-to-consumer shipping.

Oregon ranks first in consumer access to wine, tied with Virginia and the District of Columbia, while Utah ranks last.
