'Bama hikes wine alcohol limit

Alabama has raised the limit on alcohol content in wines sold in the state.

Gov. Bob Riley signed legislation Thursday that makes the bill passed last week by the state legislature the law.

The limit for table wine had been 14.9% by volume but now is 16.5%.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. Steve French, R-Birmingham. It specifies that the stronger wine may not be sold in convenience stores.
