America Without Tiers: Changing Wine Distribution

Despite a great diversity in the US wine market, dozens of wine producers – of all sizes – have continued to complain about what they perceive to be limited market access, which they blame on the distribution tier.

Liquor license caps called a “vestige of Puritan New England”

In general, state statute limits the number of liquor and wine and beer licenses for each city and town based on its population. The Legislature routinely makes exceptions to that law, granting additional licenses to municipalities on an individual basis through a local petition.

“It appears that with growing frequency the exceptions are overtaking the rule,” Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr of Gloucester told his colleagues on the floor. He said, “It seems that there is rarely a week that passes that we do not either in formal or informal session grant a municipality an additional liquor license, and usually Mr. President it is more than one.”

Common Council denies Wal-Mart liquor license

The majority of the Council cited proximity to other retail sellers of alcohol, a lack of support in the community, concern over the safety of selling liquor in a large store, and because the store is not a new business coming into town.

GREAT TO SEE MORE EXAMPLES IN US OF SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT

Join Betsy Barry of Franklin Yoga & Wellness and Mark Lenzi of Franklin Liquors for a sensory exploration of wine through the energy systems of the body.

This unique workshop combines a 6o-minute yoga class with a carefully sequenced wine pairing designed to open and balance the major energy centers, known as “chakras.” With a heightened sense of awareness, we will explore each chakra through physical observation of each shared wine, discovering taste, flavor and feel in a new way.

No prior knowledge of yoga or wine is required. Plan to bring an open mind and leave feeling balanced and satisfied with a new appreciation of both wine and self.
