US Wine Shipping Map

If you really want to make your head hurt, start studying up on US interstate wine shipping laws.  It has been said it is easier to sell and distribute wine in the former Soviet Republic than it is in the US.  That's  a pretty true statement.  Some of our 3-tier laws go all the way back to Prohibition.  These laws that inhibit interstate commerce and the enjoyment of good wine have been kept in place by powerful lobbyists that influence their legislatures into thinking this system is a good idea.  We all know it's not, but change comes very slow when it comes to interstate alcohol regulations.

This map came from the editors at "The World of Fine Wine" (, a magazine based in the UK.
