DTC Changes in Tennessee

On May 12, 2021, Tennessee Governor Lee signed legislation (H.B. 1481) to increase the amount of wine that a direct shipper may now ship to a consumer per year, from three to six cases. This is for direct shippers producing less than 270,000 liters (30,000 cases) per year. The three case per person, per year, per winery limit still applies to direct shippers that produce 270,000 liters or more annually. Also effective immediately, a winery direct shipper may only ship wine of its own production or wine brands produced exclusively for their own use.
