Shipping Wine From State to State

April 8th, 2013

Thinking of shipping wine to a customer out of state? Be careful! Whether it’s for a walk-in customer visiting your area who wants to send something home, or a regular customer shipping a gift, you can run afoul of state regulations very easily. [level-members]

This map from the Specialty Wine Retailers Association gives an overview of prohibitions and permits state-by-state. (As of September 5, 2012. DO NOT use this as your sole guideline; consult your state’s controlling authority.)

Check out the longer piece on Dr. Vino’s blog, but the source for the map – the Specialty Wine Retailers Association website – seems to be down.
