Media Alert – News Conference to be held Wednesday, August 24 At Grace Winery to Kick Off Direct Sales of Wine in PA

Senator Tom Killion (R-9) will hold a news conference at noon on Wednesday, August 24 at the Grace Winery, located at 50 Sweetwater Rd, Glen Mills.  The senator and owners of the winery will formally ship their first bottle of wine at the event.  The winery was issued a permit to ship wine from the Liquor Control Board as authorized by Act 39 of 2016, which allows Pennsylvania residents to have wine shipped directly to their homes.

Killion strongly supported the law, which lifted a number of restrictions to direct wine shipping in Pennsylvania.

“I’m pleased that Grace Winery will be one of the first direct shippers in Southeastern Pennsylvania and one of the first five businesses to be issued permits under the new LCB license,” Killion said.  “This will help them to better market their excellent product and enable more consumers to enjoy them.”
