Wine Spectator: New York’s Prosecution Of Wine Store For Shipping Out Of State PostponedJanuary 26, 2015

At the first hearing on the charges, on January 23, the state agency presented evidence that Empire Wine sold to customers in 16 states.

She adjourned the proceedings for now. Wine Spectator has the full story.
