Thanks for the update! Hoping for Minnesota, I bought the Wellington deal last week straight through the vineyard, so I got a small taste of what it'd be like again to be active again on wine.woot.

This might be a case of being careful what I wish for!

It would be great to have the option to order again, although I really need to be careful. SWMBO has cut me off, again...

So much for drinking down the inventory. Of course, South Dakota isn't on the ship-to list (the Pony Express doesn't handle packages that heavy), but my gang of Minnesota wootleggers might hear more from me.

About dadgum time. It's been so long since I ordered and shipped to Tennessee, I've forgotten my password! Thanks, Winedavid!

Is there a list of wineries that will honor the woot pricing?
And any word on WV being added back in?

I don't know of any list, but people usually ask the winery rep on the day of the sale. Pedroncelli, among others, is always willin', if they have a license to ship to your state.

Sorry if I missed an earlier post, but is NJ really back on the list? I don't check every day (anymore), but it was listed on at least two wine deals during today's Woot-Off.

It might not be a bad idea to send out an email to the people who've had wine shipped to those states...

I happened to randomly come on and see that you were shipping to WI again.

VERY NICE!

New Jersey is now back. HOWEVER, many wineries don't go for the new jersey permit because it's too expensive and for large wineries, too complicated.

i'd say 30% of the winery offers will have NJ moving forward.

I've continued to update the status of ship-to states HERE. With New Jersey being the most recent state welcomed back to the fold, 11 of the 19 states previously blacklisted have been restored and 1 new state (Montana) added along the way. Note that Virginia is not included in those stats as it is a different animal altogether due to the.... unusual.... legislation passed by VA lawmakers, requiring third-party wine sellers to be registered as Agricultural entities.

Yea for MN back on the list. Now I just need a Noceto deal to get back into the swing of things.

Yet it may well have been Bledsoe, who played for the Patriots from 1993 to 2001 and was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame, who nudged the direct shipping effort over the goal line by visiting the Statehouse last year to push for the bill.

Bledsoe, owner of the Doubleback winery, explained to lawmakers that he was having trouble providing samples to friends, fans and former teammates in Massachusetts, including Tom Brady, who succeeded him as New England’s quarterback.

“Tom actually bought the wine, and he shipped it to his dad’s house” in California, Bledsoe said. But the plan went awry when Brady’s father drank the wine before his son got there.



Sounds as if Brady père has his priorities in line. Wine first, then kids. Isn't that often how the kids come to be in the first place?

Curious about Nebraska. It was in the 16 remaining states that could be shipped to when everyone else was dropped but I just noticed that the new ice wine today can't be shipped to NE. I haven't paid much attention to the wine in the last year or two since I am overstocked anyway but thought the ice wine sounded tasty

just a specific winery issue or is Nebraska now off the list?

Just the winery. Nebraska was on the list in recent offerings.

This seems appropriate here. From the 1/3/12 thread:

jimhcv wrote:It's very very frustrating. As the original manufacturer of the wine, we are eligible to apply to many states for licenses to ship wine to their residents. Some of these states do not allow wine retailers to be a party to the transaction (maybe as a concession to in-state distributors and liquor stores). In our experience, the Commonwealth of Virginia is one of the more prickly states. The alcoholic beverage control guys are sticklers. Some of the above may explain why Woot is not now able to include Virginia in its roster. Sorry for the long answer. Any way you look at it, it's frustrating.

WD. So 4 states got back on the good list Back in October. Was that because their states changed the way the law was written or because of a different interpretation of those states laws?

Speaking as a Vermonter, nothing changed (or from what I've read, is likely to change). Per ShipComplaint and FreeTheGrapes, we're a "good" state across the board by their rating system.

Since nothing changed with VT and all the places we're told to look to see if your state is "compliant" say VT is a "go," I assume there was a recategorization of wine.woot changing from what was, in effect, a "leased virtual storefront" to a traditional "retail establishment." If wine.woot is a facilitator for the wineries, the winery remains the seller and in that model (like their wine clubs), everything's cool. If wine.woot is looked upon as being like a BevMo or Specs, then all of a sudden you're buying from a retailer, not the winery, and THAT does run afoul of wine shipping laws (at least for Vermont).

A favorable change in the interpretation of the rules or changes at the Federal level will likely be required to get a lot of the "Hey, you used to ship to..." states back into shipping status.

...and I'm starting to run low on Wellington, so that needs to happen damn soon!

For the time being, you need a wootlegger, maybe one in Buffalo who wouldn't mind visiting Vermont. We're seriously considering a trip to New England this summer.

It remains a mystery to me why certain wineries can't see fit to ship to a state with a population the size of NY. Arizona Stronghold, for example. And others that can ship directly to some states, but can't do so when the wine is being sold through wine.woot.
