The purpose of this Comment is to examine some important legal issues affecting the state's winemaking industry. In particular, this Comment will address the continuing litigation that the direct shipment of wine to consumers has spawned throughout the country, and the effect of the Twenty-first Amendment on states' rights to control their own alcohol regulatory schemes. The author also hopes that this Comment will spark more interest in North Carolina wine.
