WSWC Hosts Annual Wines of the World Reception for Legislators

The Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of Connecticut (WSWC) presented its annual “Wines of the World” reception at the State Capitol in Hartford on June 3. Every year, the event brings together legislators, lobbyists and state capitol staff with beverage industry professionals for an evening of wine, food and mingling as the session winds down. WSWC members, including Allan S. Goodman, Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI), Eder Bros., Inc., Hartley & Parker, Ltd., Opici Family Distributing, Slocum & Sons and Winebow, poured domestic and imported wines from California, Italy and France, among a variety of regions, while educating guests on the showcased selections, marking the close of the 2019 legislative session. New this year was the rollout of Three Tiers, Inc., a not-for-profit combined effort between multiple state stakeholder groups, including the Connecticut Package Stores Association (CPSA), to reduce the environmental impact of land-based litter, including 50ml “nip” bottles. See the WSWC Column on page 36 in the July Connecticut Beverage Journal for more information.
