Shipping wine from France to the US

schmil | Feb 10, 2010 05:55 AM

We have family in France and from time to time, they send us a couple of wine bottles using the French post office. They use the boxes specifically made for shipping bottles, so the post office always knew what was being sent. Last week they went to their local French post office again to ship us a couple of bottles of Bourgueil, and they were told that they can no longer send alcohol to the US, and that it was a US law (not a new French law) that was to blame. Anyone have any similar experiences or know anything more about this? Thanks.
