MONTGOMERY, Ala (AP) – Alabamians might soon be able to have wine delivered in the mail.

The Alabama Senate on Thursday voted 27-0 for the bill by Republican Rep. Terri Collins.

The House of Representatives voted 88-5 to accept Senate changes to the bill. It now goes to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey for her signature.

The bill would allow wineries to obtain a direct wine shipper license from the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to ship limited quantities of wine directly to Alabama residents 21 and older.

Retailers could not ship to residents.
