Updates to Massachusetts Direct to Consumer Shipper License Application
As most wine industry members are aware, licensed wineries now have the option to ship directly to consumers in Massachusetts if they obtain a Direct Wine Shipper License from the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (the “ABCC”).
The ABCC has recently revised the application for the Direct Wine Shipper License. The revised application allows wineries to list a mailing address (in addition to their facility address), no longer requires a copy of a vote by the Board of Directors LLC Managers appointing a manager or principal representative, and only ask applicants to disclose interests in other Massachusetts alcohol beverage licenses (as opposed to licenses out of the state).
The revised application is available online here.
