This week, wine and spirits distributors from across the country who do business in every congressional district and who make up Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA)’s membership, will connect with congressional offices to discuss industry matters. One point of focus this year will be important tax policies set to expire in 2025 that are critical to these family-owned businesses to create jobs, modernize fleets and facilities, and support employee-centric and community-based programs, according to WSWA.

“Our family-owned wholesaler members are talking with Members of Congress about the value we bring to the industry and are reinvigorating the public-private partnership that has produced the safest, most efficient and successful alcohol marketplace the world has ever seen,” said WSWA CEO and President Francis Creighton in a news release.

Wine and spirits wholesalers employ more than 86,000 Americans across every state and congressional district who earn a collective $7.8 billion in annual wages as part of an industry that generates more than $40 billion in tax revenue each year, WSWA states.
