Sukie Honeycutt, wine director and owner of Tony's Off Third in Naples, stocks her store with wine Tuesday. A bill moving through Congress could limit whether wineries - and retailers - can ship alcohol directly through the mail. The law was crafted y the National Wholesalers Association and would strengthen state government's control of alcohol sales. Honeycutt says out of state sales are about 10 per cent of her business and that the new bill will prevent her from selling wine to some of her seasonal customers when they travel back to their homes in the northern states.
