Wine Spectator: The Upcoming Supreme Court Decision

June 24, 2019

The U.S. Supreme Court is shortly expected to hand down an opinion on Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Zackary Blair et al, potentially the biggest case involving wine since Granholm v. Heald in 2005, which struck down bans against out-of-state direct-shipping by wineries.

The case at hand deals with the constitutionality of Tennessee’s residency requirement for alcohol retailers, but some are hoping for—or dreading—a broad ruling with larger consequences for how Americans buy wine. Wine Spectator takes a look at the various ramifications, depending on how the court decides to rule.—Emma Balter
