The Digest of Wine & Spirits Law was first compiled and offered to the industry in 1991 by Mary Kramer of M. J. Kramer & Associates. It quickly became an industry standard, fondly referred to as “the Red Books.” Mary continued to develop The Digest and update it quarterly until she retired in 2018. Compliance Service of America (CSA), a well-respected compliance company and long-time Digest subscriber, is now the publisher of The Digest.

CSA is a fully staffed compliance firm specializing in alcoholic beverage regulation and licensing. Having served the industry since 1983, CSA has years of real world experience and a reputation for explaining complex regulations in plain English. The company looks forward to steadily expanding and improving The Digest, while continuing to keep this valuable resource up-to-date for the industry.

At CSA, maintaining The Digest is a team effort. Nationally known experts Sara Schorske and Alex Heckathorn track legislation, study the changes, and write updates. Dyana Nedra oversees and directs Digest operations. Karra Romero handles the many details of coordinating subscribers, vendors, and logistics.
