The DTC Wine Symposium is presented by and a fundraiser for Free the Grapes! The Symposium has raised more than $1 million for Free the Grapes’ PR campaign, and the Coalition for Free Trade’s legal work (CFT was “retired” in 2014 after achieving its goals). These two groups have worked closely with industry lobbyists and regional associations to streamline onerous regulations and to increase the number of legal, winery DTC shipping states from 17 to 46, which represent 96% of the US population.
