The Digest of Wine & Spirits Law Launches New Website

The Digest of Wine and Spirits Law team has just launched its highly anticipated website at, making The Digest an even more powerful tool for the wine and spirits industry.

Trusted by industry professionals since its debut as a printed publication in 1991, The Digest provides a thorough and comprehensive condensation of statutes, regulations, and administrative decisions from all states governing the sales and marketing of wine and distilled spirits for both wholesale and DTC channels. Subscribers include wine and spirits suppliers, wholesalers, and distributors as well as attorneys and compliance professionals.

Compliance Service of America (CSA) purchased The Digest, known in the industry as the “Red Books,” from Mary Kramer in early 2018 when she retired. “As long time subscribers to The Digest, we wanted to keep this valuable resource available to the industry,” says CSA’s founder, Sara Schorske.

CSA is uniquely qualified to take over as publisher of The Digest because the company has years of compliance experience with all tiers of the industry. “The experience and understanding we’ve gained from working directly with regulatory agencies over the years make CSA a perfect fit for continuing the development of The Digest,” says Alex Heckathorn, Senior Consultant at CSA.

In addition to expanded content, the new website offers significantly improved flexibility and ease in assembling regulatory information, allowing subscribers to instantly generate comprehensive and detailed reports covering many states and topics. More great news: The Digest team can now post changes to rules and laws to the website immediately, making the online version of The Digest more accurate and up-to-date than ever. 

Now that the new website is up, the Digest team has plans for more enhancements in 2020. Saved searches, a personalized dashboard for subscribers, optional email notifications about updates, and more improvements are in the works.

Annual subscriptions to the Digest website are $995. Multiple-user discounts are available. CSA still offers a print version of The Digest, which has been expanded to a four-binder set, updated on a quarterly basis. There are additional subscription costs for printed copies.

CSA, located in southern Oregon, has specialized in alcoholic beverage regulation and licensing since 1983. A fully staffed compliance firm, CSA brings a wealth of expertise and experience in explaining complicated regulations in plain English.
