Join The Coalition
You have been stripped of your right to access thousands of fine wines.
You had no voice to express your desire to retain this long held right to out-of-state wine shipments from retailers. Now there is HB 2462, a bill that will restore your access to fine wines but you must take immediate steps in support of HB 2462 now.
The IWCC has been formed solely to put the wine consumer first and to help restore your access to the wines you want!
Join the IWCC, write in support of HB 2462 and help put the wine consumer first.
