Anyone who has tried to buy wine at a winery, take a special bottle to a restaurant or buy wine on a Sunday knows Indiana’s laws are confusing and restrictive.
Neighboring states aren’t much better off. Indiana and Kentucky prevent direct winery-to-consumer shipping while Illinois, Michigan and Ohio allow it. All four of those neighboring states allow Sunday sales while Indiana does not.
The American Wine Consumer Coalition in Washington, D.C., recently issued a report and grade for all 50 states. It’s called Consuming Concerns: The 2013 State-by-State Report Card on Consumer Access to Wine.
