Amazon Wine Ships Hooch to Your Doorstep

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 10, 2012


Amazon has announced a new service further proving that you can buy just about anything from the massive online retailer. The new services called Amazon Wine, and as you can imagine, the service will ship wine to certain states. However, Amazon isn’t stockpiling a huge inventory of wine and then shipping bottles out directly. Rather the wine is purchased through Amazon, and then shipped directly from the vineyard.

Wine services are available in California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Washington, D.C. Presumably, the limited availability has to do with laws in various states governing the shipment of alcohol from outside of the state. Amazon says that more states will be participating in the program soon.

Naturally, to purchase the wine requires that the buyer be at least 21-years-old. If somehow a kid should happen to figure out how to get around that purchase requirement, the packages won’t be delivered unless someone at least 21 or older is home to sign. Amazon is charging $9.99 to ship up to six bottles of wine and Prime Shipping rates are not available for the wine service.
