Interstate DtC Shipping Compliance for Wine

While most states allow direct-to-consumer wine shipping, each destination state has its own rules to follow in order to ship compliantly. States can have varying requirements and limitations when it comes to licensing, product restrictions, dry communities or even volume limits for how much a given customer can receive.

Cider Shipping Compliance

Understanding and managing the complexities of DtC wine shipping compliance is critical to the success of your business. The rules spelled out state by state below will help you learn how to comply with each state’s distinct direct-to-consumer wine shipping rules for out-of-state wineries.

When reviewing this information, keep the following in mind:

  • The rules we’ve compiled here only reflect regulations that a state would impose on a wine supplier located in a different state, looking to enter a new market. They do not include rules on setting up a production plant, or for federal or home-state compliance.
  • This is not a definitive or complete guide. It should be used only as a starting place, to help lead you in the right direction as you expand your distribution. Do not take this as the final word on any regulatory issue.
  • When you actually approach selling in a new state, be sure to consult with someone who can properly interpret how the rules apply to your individual circumstances: your compliance team, your legal counsel or even another winery located in that state.

And don’t forget that Sovos ShipCompliant offers several tools to help you in this process, with a cloud-based, easy-to-use platform for your licensing, product registration, product management and state filing needs. Sovos provides complete and up-to-date state rules guidance in all ShipCompliant products. You can request a demo anytime.
