Why are Lousiana's beer/wine shipping laws so dumb?

I've taken a real liking to the Marilyn Wines collection , but it is neither sold in, nor can it be shipped to Louisiana. Had to have some friends bring me in a few bottles from Texas recently.

We all know that beer selection is very limited.

What gives? Is it the evangelical thumpers with a tight grip on the state alcohol boards? Or is it the distributors not allowing competition? Or both?

These $12-30 bottles will be worth hundreds in 10 years. And plus, the bottles are awesome.

I just found a website that would ship them here. They were vintages though but would still ship.

Have you talked to a specialty store in town like Marcello's, Martins, Etc, or did you just assume that if you haven't seen it it must not be here.

The Marilyn merlot is pretty good. The Norma jean is the cheap stuff. It used to be available through a distributor here and may still be. If there is a distributor, a winery of their size may choose not to purchase a shipping license for direct customers bc of the cost. I had access to it when I was at churchills. Just ask your retailer for wine locally and see what they come up with. And yes it can be "worth" a significant amount if money due to cross interest collecting but as a wine drinker I would personally spend that amount of cash on something else.
