The constantly changing regulatory environment for wine shipping and distribution poses an ongoing challenge for wineries looking to get their products into the hands of eager consumers. Three upcoming compliance events will give wineries an up-to-date look at the latest industry changes and provide interactive discussion with a chance to meet the ShipCompliant team.
- Paso Robles, CA: Wineries in the Paso Robles area are invited to attend “Simplify Your Compliance”, a regional workshop held on Nov. 12 to address legal issues related to compliance with tips, tricks and best practices for an efficient compliance program. Demonstrations of the latest technology used to manage direct shipping compliance and shipping will be included.
- Napa, CA: Last day to register-today. On Monday, November 16, Napa Valley Vintners and the Wine Institute will co-host a member-only Direct Shipping Workshop in Napa, California. This special “boot camp” will include an update of rules, regulations, required paperwork, costs and pointers on how to ship wine directly throughout the United States. To register, contact Patsy McGaughy.
- Everywhere, USA: ShipCompliant’s annual Direct Shipping Virtual Seminar—held on Tuesday, Dec. 1—is free to attend. Winery owners, tasting room managers, compliance professionals and others involved in direct shipping can log in from the convenience of their desk to hear the Wine Institute and ShipCompliant provide an overview of the latest direct shipping regulations and technology.
