Amazon Wine Shipping Expanded

Amazon announced the expansion of wine shipments to New York, Michigan, Arizona and Louisiana bringing the total number of states covered to 20 plus the District of Columbia.


This news comes just in time for the busy holiday season. Consumers shopping online have a choice of more than 5,000 wines from 700 sellers. The vast majority of the wine is from American wineries but there are labels sourced from France, Italy and Australia among other top wine regions. Customers can ship up to six bottles of the same wine for $9.99.


This holiday season Amazon is upping their game offering limited production wines, deals on mixed packs and the opportunity for shoppers to ask questions directly of the wine sellers. For a limited time, customers can take advantage of 20 percent or more saving on over 100 mixed packs of various varietals from select wineries.


The states now in the Amazon network are Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.
