It’s Time for Wine in Connecticut Grocery Stores. Allowing Wine Sales in Local Grocery Stores Benefits the State’s Economy
Expanding wine sales to local grocery stores will create jobs, protect farmland, and inspire the production of more locally sourced wines. Connecticut remains one of only a handful of states that still prohibit wine sales in food stores. There is plenty of evidence in neighboring states that suggests allowing the sale of wine in grocery stores will have little to no negative impact on Connecticut businesses. In fact, allowing the sale of wine in grocery stores is likely to yield significant benefits to Connecticut consumers and the state’s economy.
