Wine Law: Direct-to-Consumer Shipping

1.5 hours MCLE Credit


With the spread of e-commerce, direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) sales and shipping has become an everyday part of life. Even though this may now be the norm for most industries, the legacy of our patchwork national system of alcohol regulation continues to create barriers to market access for the wine industry. This session will explore the current status of DTC shipping for the wine industry and potential landmines you still need to address.

Wine Law: Outside Events and Festivals

1.5 hours MCLE Credit


Wineries are frequently asked to sponsor  events outside their tasting rooms.  Whether it’s a multi-day concert or a small winemaker dinner, outside events can be great marketing opportunities for your winery clients.  However, there is also a slew of sometimes confusing regulations they will need to follow.  Join Bahaneh Hobel and Morgen McLaughlin as they explore what wineries need to know to legally participate in outside events.

Wine Law: Santa Barbara's Winery Ordinance Update

1.5 hours MCLE Credit


Since mid-2012, Santa Barbara County has tried to find a balance between the booming local wine industries and concerns by local residences about the impact of this growth.  The Planning Commission has held numerous public outreach meetings and hearings.  A Draft Environmental Impact Report  (“DEIR”) has been prepared and circulated.  A proposed Winery Ordinance Update would amend the Santa Barbara County Land Use and Development Code to, per the Planning Commission,  “more clearly define standards for (1) allowed tasting room and event activities, (2) food service, including the permitting of kitchen facilities in wineries, and (3) sale of wine related items.”    Join local wine law practitioner Susan Petrovich as we take a closer look at the  Santa Barbara Ordinance and what other regions may learn from this experience.

Wine Law: Social Media and Event Promotion

1.5 hours MCLE Credit

Join Rebecca Stamey-White for an overview of the multiple state and federal regulations that may apply to these seemingly innocuous social media communications.
