The Association of Small Direct WineMerchants (ASDW) has joined the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA).

ASDW was formed in 2005 and comprises 18 small businesses that sell wine over the Internet, by phone or mail order.

The association was originally formed as a campaign group to lobby the Government over the effects of the 2003 Licensing Act on member businesses.

"We are delighted that ASDW, and their 18 members, have decided to come into the WSTA membership," said Jeremy Beadles, WSTA chief executive.

"The WSTA has worked hard during the implementation of the Licensing Act advising a huge number of companies in the trade about the changes introduced by the Act and how these changes will affect their businesses - it is encouraging to see this work being recognised in the trade." 

Warren Edwardes, ASDW chairman, added: "The ASDW looks forward to working with the WSTA on all aspects of the distance selling of wine, particularly the consequences of the new Licensing Act, which is having such a damaging effect on small businesses such as ours.

"We are confident that this will be a highly beneficial move for all of our members to obtain access to the full support services that the WSTA provides and to engage with the WSTA on further issues such as labelling, consumer protection and health and other issues."
