Recap of states removed/added while we wait for additional news....
Before the reinterpretation of NY laws, which led to NY being removed from the ship-to list, wine.woot shipped to as many as 35 states depending on winery licenses and other regulations. Those states were;
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District Of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois,
Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.
Approximately two weeks after NY was removed from the ship-to list, an additional 18 states were removed. Speculation was that they have language similar to that of NY laws.
At that point wine.woot was only shipping to 16 states;
California, Colorado, Connecticut, District Of Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, Wyoming.
So far, 11 states have been added back to the list. They are;
Iowa, New York, Arizona, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, New Jersey.
Montana is a newcomer to the list on 11/25/2013.
The following 5 states are still up in the air;
Kansas, Maine, New Mexico, North Dakota, West Virginia.
Here's hoping to see more states added back soon!
