The folks at ShipCompliant have written a great summary here of some likely U.S. trends for 2012 in the areas of wine law and distribution: Wine Sales and Distribution 2012 - A Look Forward. They highlight movement on the direct to consumer shipping issue, modernized marketing, privatization and federal action on wine sales and distribution. All of these are also hot topics in Canada. As the year progresses, we will have to see whether the trends in the U.S. are also reflected in the Canadian marketplace.
