Governor: Time is ripe for shipped-in wine

The Associated Press

Gov. Janet Napolitano on Thursday signed a bill that will allow wineries in Arizona and other states to ship wine ordered by phone, mail, fax or the Internet directly to Arizona consumers.

Arizona law currently allows direct shipments if the purchaser is physically present at the winery.

Under the new law, any U.S. winery would have to have an Arizona license to ship wine to Arizonans.

The legislation follows a 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down state laws in New York and Michigan that prohibited direct purchases from out-of-state vineyards.

Arizona was among 24 states with laws barring interstate shipments.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
