What happens to all that wine?

Perhaps if PA would allow the import of wine from out of state, cases like this would not happen

Hey Betsy, According to the DA's office, the wine was collected by authorities and will be forfeit. As to what "forfeit" actually means, I can't say for sure. My assumption is that the wine will sit in an evidence locker, but I can't confirm that.
