sales in food
stores is good
Welcome to the
Kentucky Food with Wine Coalition Website!
Food retailers, operating in Kentucky counties that permit the sale of alcoholic beverages, have joined together to help Kentucky consumers learn about the benefits of allowing the sale of wine inside supermarkets. More and more Kentucky consumers are asking why they are not allowed to select a fine bottle of wine with their food purchases in one convenient shopping trip.
Additionally, as more Kentucky farmers are transitioning to alternative crops other than tobacco, Kentucky’s rapidly growing wine industry will need additional retail outlets in order to reach consumers now discovering the fine Kentucky wines being produced all across the state.
We encourage you to take a few moments to explore this Website and learn how farmers, wineries, and consumers will all benefit from allowing the sale of wine in food stores. We've also produced a special video about allowing wines sales in grocery stores and supermarkets to help tell the story.
Be sure to participate in our ONLINE PETITION to let your Kentucky General Assembly member know you support allowing consumers greater choice in where they shop for wine. Remember to pass the online petition information along to your friends!
