Erin Francisco started this petition to New York State

The Aldaskeller Wine Co. has been working for over a year to open Rochester's first natural wine shop. We have put everything we have into achieving our dream of opening a small natural wine shop in the neighborhood where we live. But now, the future of our business and our livelihoods are at stake and we need your help. On February 16, 2022, the NYS Liquor Authority denied us a license to sell wine because they did not believe there was enough demand for natural wine in our area despite the many letters of support our business received from Rochester area residents, fellow business owners, natural wine distributors, and local legislators. Their decision not only ignored the wishes of our community, but has jeopardized our future and our family's well-being. Shouldn't communities get to decide which businesses they support, not the state? Sign our petition to tell the State Liquor Authority that there is demand for a natural wine shop in our region and Aldaskeller Wine Co. has the right to open our shop in our neighborhood. Adding your name will tell them loud and clear: Rochester wants a natural wine shop! Approve Aldaskeller Wine Co.'s license now!
