Wine Shipping Map

Source: Wine Enthusiast Magazine


Does wine ship to your state?  I can remember when North Carolina had restrictions so we weren’t even able to join any wine clubs. Most states have lifted the restrictions, but as you can see from the map above (courtesy of Wine Enthusiast), not all states allow wines to be shipped in.

The “Red” states don’t allow wine shipments at all and the “Yellow” states still have some restrictions making it difficult to have wine shipped in.

Wine shipping regulations are complex and confusing, and penalties for breaking the rules can be harsh. While consumer-to-consumer shipping is prohibited nationwide, most licensed wineries and retailers allow you to send wine to yourself as well as to others as a gift. Whether you’re shipping wine from California to New York, or from Michigan to Missouri, this resource tells you everything you need to know to get your wine from A to B.

    Lovely post. I sent wine from my local wine shop from NC to Arizona recently and it was interesting to see him check the map first. I don’t why I thought I could ship it myself legally? Anyway, I played it safe and had it legally shipped and it surprisingly only cost about 3.00 more than if I had illegally shipped it.

    I am so glad that Michigan changed the laws about clubs.

    Great info! Sad to know, however, that our state (PA) is linked to UT, AL, and MS in their levels of tolerance….
