Wineries pour into Pennsylvania for direct wine licenses

More than 120 wineries, many from the West Coast, continue to pour into Pennsylvania in search of licenses to ship wine under the state’s reformed liquor law.

That’s up from about 50 a week ago, according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. Recent additions include wineries from California, Texas and Washington, according to the PLCB’s licensing portal.

Under the law, Pennsylvania residents can now order up to 36 cases per year from each wine producer licensed by the PLCB and have the wine shipped to their homes.

A few midstate wineries have been licensed to ship direct, including Waltz Vineyards Estate Winery LLC in Lancaster County, Allegro Vineyards in York County, Armstrong Valley Vineyard and Winery in Dauphin County, Adams County Winery in Adams County and Thorn Hill Vineyards Inc., a California winery with Lancaster County ownership and a local tasting room.

Nearly 30 of the licensees so far are Pennsylvania wineries. California wineries account for more than 60, with Napa Valley a common address.
