Shipping Spirits

 Important Shipping Info: Can you receive Spirits in the mail?
How does BarSupplies know that I am of legal age?
You must be 21 years of age to order alcoholic beverages. Additionally, all shipments of alcoholic beverages within the United States require an adult's signature at the time of delivery. $2.75 additional cost of acquiring a signature is included in the cost of S/H. Of course, orders for non-alcoholic items (glassware, wine storage accessories, etc.) are not restricted to certain states and can be shipped throughout the United States.

How do I figure out if my State (U.S) is legal to accept shipments from California?
Non-California residents are responsible for determining whether they may lawfully import alcoholic beverages into their state. We make no representation relative to your right to import wine or spirits into your state. Each state has its own rules about alcoholic beverages. We have listed a few rules below. You may want to check with the appropriate agency in your state or county. If, between the date of order and date of arrival, the laws of your state change so as to make it illegal for you to import your shipment, you can return the order for a full refund. You will, however, be charged for shipping and handing of the product. BarSupplies will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that BarSupplies in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject BarSupplies to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by BarSupplies violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state. As a service to our buyers, we have compiled a listing of these facilities, which are not affiliated with BarSupplies. We do not provide an endorsement of any facility and we recommend that you contact the facility directly to determine if their costs and services meet your needs.

Third party storage facilities within states we CAN ship to...
  • Fifty-Five Degrees (St Helena, California: 707-963-5513)
  • La Cave Wine Storage (several locations within California: 650-692-4660)
  • Northwest Distribution and Storage (Salem, Oregon: 503-362-2212)
  • Portland Wine Storage (Portland, Oregon: 503-231-1121)
  • WineBank (Menlo Park, CA: 650-327-9200)
Please contact them directly for their rules and regulations.

I will take Full Responsibility. Will BarSupplies ship me wine?
Because of the widely variable and punitive laws controlling the shipment of wine in the United States, we have created this section to help you determine the restrictions and limitations that you may face when buying wine online -- depending on who you are and where you are shipping to. Any wine sold to you through BarSupplies is sold in California and title passes to you, the buyer, in California. The buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wine. We make no representations concerning your legal rights to ship or receive wine into any state outside California or any country outside the United States. In fact there are certain states and countries we cannot ship to. By placing this order, you authorize us to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to your selected designation.

Domestic Shipping Rules
If you don't see your state below please go to www.freethegrapes.com
  1. Wyoming: For shipping to Wyoming, BarSupplies needs to purchase a license for $50/year. This will allow BarSupplies to register with Wyoming authorities and submit 12% tax collected for all sales.
  2. Nebraska: For shipping to Nebraska, BarSupplies needs to purchase a license for $500 (one time). This will allow BarSupplies to register with Nebraska authorities and submit tax collected for all sales. Charge some additional amount for each shipping to cover the $500 license fee.
  3. North Dakota: For shipping to North Dakota, BarSupplies needs to purchase a license for $50/year. This will allow BarSupplies to register with North Dakota authorities and submit tax collected for all sales.
  4. Wisconsin: Currently no restrictions and taxes. Beginning 2003, BarSupplies will be required to purchased a $10/annual license and submit copy of all products shipped to Wisconsin.
  5. Virginia: Look into Virginia Law. In a decision released July 27, United States Magistrate Judge Dennis Dohnal recommended that Virginia law banning consumers from directly buying wine from out-of-state wineries be held unconstitutional. Virginia now requires all out-of-state wine sold in the state to be sold through wholesalers and retailers. It allows Virginia wineries, by contrast, to sell wine directly. Virginia wineries can thus bypass wholesalers and retailers on some sales. Judge Dohnal found that Virginia's \"professed interest\" in temperance was \"fraught with contradictions\" and that its instate preference was \"but a pretext for exclusion.\" In his view, none of the state's asserted justifications worked to support its discriminatory scheme. The judge had some question as to the right remedy. The state could cure the discrimination, he said, by either allowing out-of-state wineries to ship directly to Virginia consumers or prohibiting Virginia wineries from shipping to them. Obviously uncomfortable making such a choice, he suggested suspending any order to give the Virginia Legislature time to decide which course to take. All parties filed objections to the recommendation on August 29. Next steps: Judge Williams will hear oral arguments on October 3 on the magistrate's recommendation. Appeals will stem from that final decision.
  6. New York: Follow up with news relating to NY alcohol statute.
  7. Texas: Follow up with news relating to Texas alcohol statute.
  8. Florida: Follow up with news relating to Florida alcohol statute. Waiting for plaintiff's decision.
  9. Pennsylvania: Residents will be able to buy a product from [a Web site] and then they will ship it to the state Liquor Control Board, [which] will have it directed to a state store of your choice. Customer will pay for taxes during pick up.
  10. Alabama:
    a) the alcoholic beverages are to be ordered and paid for by the individual.
    b) The shipment is to be consigned, freight charges prepaid, directly to the individual in care of an ABC store.
    c) Upon payment of all taxes and assessments, the shipment will be turned over to the individual at the ABC store.
  11. Georgia: Limited direct shipment allowed effective July 1, 2000. Only those wineries which do not already have a distributor in the state of Georgia may, for a $50.00 fee, apply for a shipping license. Excise taxes must be paid to the state for all wine shipped under the license. Please note that the annual limit for such shipments under the license is a total of 50 cases into the state, with no one consumer receiving more than 5 cases.
  12. Louisiana: Direct Shipment permitted to consumers ordering from within Louisiana only if out-of-state winery does not have wholesaler representation in that state. Direct shipment is permitted to any Louisiana consumer who orders "sparkling or still wine perfected on the premises of the manufacturer." Shipper Permit Required & Ltd. Quantity, only without wholesaler representation. 4 cases per year
  13.
