Important DTC legislature is moving along in TN to stop 3rd party shipping.
Much like OK in 2019, TN is moving along with HB 742, a piece of legislature to stop DTC shipments from fulfillment houses.
What does this mean? If passed, WineDirect will be prohibited by the state of TN to ship into the state on your behalf.
The bill was passed by the subcommittee on Wednesday 3/3 and will be considered by the State Government committee on Tuesday 3/9.
Want to help fight it? Please reach out to Free the Grapes or The Wine Institute to have your voice heard.
In the meantime, until we're told otherwise by the state of TN, we will continue to ship to TN.
Leverage our Weather Holds feature to hold shipping to states experiencing extreme weather.
Want to pause shipping to a state experiencing a heat wave or extreme cold? We have a feature for you - Weather Holds! Weather Holds will assist in holding back orders to any of the states you decide to configure for the facilities you wish.
WineDirect will only ship when you decide or when the Weather Hold expires.
If you decide to release 50+ orders from Weather Hold or a Weather Hold with 50+ orders is about to expire, please reach out to your assigned Account Manager to plan and schedule.
