some fine Kentucky fermentation. And, if I read this thing right you could if Kentucky were a reciprocal state, to wit:
Notwithstanding any other law, an individual or retail licensee in a state that affords California retail licensees or individuals an
equal reciprocal shipping privilege, may ship, for personal use and not for resale, no more than two cases of wine (no more than nine
liters each case) per month to any adult resident in this state. Delivery of a shipment pursuant to this subdivision shall not be deemed to constitute a sale in this state.
It seems that the endangered reciprocity still exists for individuals and retail licensees. The direct shipper permit requirement, however, seems applicable to winegrowers only, but it is not subject to reciprocity as follows:
(a) Notwithstanding any law, rule, or regulation to the contrary, any person currently licensed in this state or any other state as a
winegrower who obtains a wine direct shipper permit pursuant to this section may sell and ship up to 24 nine-liter cases of wine annually
directly to a resident of California, who is at least 21 years of age, for the resident's personal use and not for resale.
Note or any other state as a winegrower.
Now, the bill doesn't explicitly say you can ship me some wine, but it also doesn't explicitly say you can't. The bill just says who can and under what circumstances. The criminalized parts apply to these people.
Anyway, that's the way I see it from the third stall on the left.
