Tax & Fee Legislation

Every year, a primary focus is on preventing the passage of new taxes and fees on the wine industry. Each year dozens of various tax and fee proposals are introduced, yet only a handful of these proposals have passed in recent years. Working with our partners in the states the State Relations team, we form “hospitality coalitions” that put a local face on the opposition to such proposals.

In 2019 no state other than Connecticut passed an increase to their excise taxes on wine.
