Illinois Direct to Consumer Wine Shipping Bill One Step Closer

The Illinois House of Representatives passed Illinois HB 429, which allows direct to consumer shipping by out-of-state wineries, by a vote of 92-6 yesterday. If passed by the Senate and signed by Governor Rod Blagojevich, the bill will afford individual Illinois residents the opportunity to receive up to 12 cases of wine per year from permitted wineries.

As mentioned in our previous post, HB 429 also gives small wineries – those producing less than 25,000 gallons per year – the privilege of shipping directly to Illinois retailers. This provision will increase access to Illinois for those wineries who fall within the production limit requirement.

As other articles have mentioned, similar legislation (SB 2180) was passed unanimously by the Senate last year. Thus, the horizon looks bright for HB 429. Stay tuned…


  1. HB 429 is a horrendous bill. It strips all out of state retailers and California’s 17/20-licensed wineries from being able to ship into IL.

    There will be hundreds of CA wineries that will not be able to ship into IL.

    Worst of all, IL consumers will lose access to thousands of wines.

  2. This ultimately will limit consumer choice since wine can come only from a winery, not an auction house, broker, out-of-state retailer.
