"For sale in Texas only" (?) lower end Texas wines

ConsApi | Mar 6, 2013 11:40 AM

On a recent trip to Texas, I went to the supermarket to get a bottle of wine for the evening. When checking out the Texas-produced bottle (yes, they have a wine industry in Texas), I noticed that a couple of the lower end wines had a notice on the label that said "for sale in Texas only." This included a Chardonnay by Becker and a "red table wine" by Lost Maples. Both of these wines are perfectly good everyday wines, and their prices is under $8 a bottle. What I'd like to know is why these wines aren't sold outside of Texas. Is this some kind of weird state law or is it a marketing decision by the winery?
