Farm Winery Laws and Their Effects

Farm Winery Laws and Their Effects

(p.91) Chapter Five Farm Winery Laws and Their Effects
Wines of Eastern North America

Hudson Cattell

Cornell University Press

This chapter discusses farm winery laws. One key to the growth of the eastern wine industry was the passage of farm winery laws starting in the late 1960s and early 1970s by various state legislatures. The early farm winery laws were often passed under a variety of names such as limited winery acts, small winery laws, native winery laws, or simply referred to as farm winery legislation. What these laws had in common is that they were passed in the name of agriculture, not wine, and were sought by grape growers who simply wanted to sell wine made from the grapes they grew on their own property. There were differences from state to state in license fees, the amount of wine that could be made, or in other regulations, but the impetus for passage was always the same: to help local agriculture.
