An Important Message from Cameron.

Cameron Hughes Wine

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to have the chance to ship our wines directly to you at your home or office. In fact, we have a great sale coming up for you in just a few hours- stay tuned! Unfortunately, our ability to ship wine to you may be in danger. That’s why I would like you to take a moment to learn about an important issue for wineries and wine consumers – HR5034.

Many of you probably haven’t heard of House Bill HR 5034. The net net is that HR5034 will enable state governments to go back to the same protectionist behavior, recently overturned by the Supreme Court, by invalidating the Commerce Clause of the Constitution with respect to beer and wine. What does this mean to you? It means that individual states could take action to further restrict the shipping of wine directly to wine consumers. That reduces choice for the consumer and competition among wineries, wholesalers and retailers, and that means higher prices. Please take a minute to learn more about this issue and if you feel strongly, as we do, that HR5034 is anti-consumer, click here to send a letter to your Senators and Representative (it only takes a minute)

Do it today as the hearing on this bill is tomorrow, Wednesday, September 29th!
