Wine 2 Online Retailer Sting Operation

Frodnesor | Jan 9, 2008 06:25 AM

Interesting stories today about doing a "sting" to identify online retailers supposedly not complying with state wine shipment laws.

I know that must have invested a tremendous amount of money into setting up in-state warehouses everywhere it does business. As a result, in Florida where I live, even before FL relaxed its direct-ship rules, was able to sell in Fl b/c it had a local warehouse and a local distributor that it went through. Clearly other online retailers aren't doing this, though I have no understanding of whether the way they operate complies w/ local laws or not.

Hope this doesn't screw up the availability of wine through online retailers.
