Here's some great news for Massachusetts wine enthusiasts and out-of-state wineries alike. Ship Compliant reports that wineries can now apply for a Massachusetts direct shipping license.

They also offer this interesting tidbit about the remaining sticking point of FedEx/UPS fleet licensing:
An early concern over the new Massachusetts wine shipping law was that it did not address the issue of common carriers having to license each and every truck that delivers wine. However, a bill to allow common carriers to obtain a fleet license for the delivery of alcohol is pending in the Massachusetts legislature. It seems somewhat unlikely that the fleet license bill will move this session. But, we believe that at least one of the common carriers will begin to license each of their trucks and therefore will be able to deliver wine to Massachusetts addresses as early as the beginning of February.
Can you believe it? Will 2015 be the year we can actually receive direct shipments from wineries?
