Strange TABC Laws

While checking my Twitter feed, I ran across an article entitled What the Hell Does "For Sale in Texas Only" Mean Anyway?.

In order for a winery to be able to slap the word "Texas" on the front of the label, the wine has to have at least 75% Texas juice. For those wines that don't meet the requirements, the state of Texas (really a federal statute) has allowed the wineries to not list an appellation on the front of the bottle, and instead tag the wine as "For sale in Texas only" on the back.

Okay, maybe it's not a TABC law, but it is still strange.
