Shipping Wine Direct From Winery To The Consumer State Requirements
Currently there are 45+ states allowing wineries to ship product directly to the consumer. It is typically required for the winery to apply for a state shipping license and pay a license fee in advance of any wine shipping. The winery must be a TTB approved licensed winery.
Most states allow direct shipping or delivery, however, some states have special procedures and requirements and a few states strictly prohibit any shipping!
Licensing requirements typically include specific forms, documents, registrations, annual compliance, sales and use tax, excise tax, sales tax and/or renewal fees to maintain your shipping permit.
Each state is different with respect to rules and regulations on shipping wine direct to consumer. One universal rule for your winery’s compliance organization is to always keep detailed records for all direct shipments, sales data and production data in order to comply with reporting requirements.
