I recently tried to order wine from a San Francisco retailer to my home in New York. They don’t ship to New York
Later, I put a great case of hard-to-find wines in my virtual shopping cart from an Oregon web vendor. Only trouble when it came time to check out: they don’t ship to New York.
I called a retailer in Chicago to put together an order to be sent to me. Sadly, no NY shipping. I queried why and eventually the owner wrote me back that his lawyer advised them not to ship to New York.
I thought that the Supreme Court’s ruling from last year would facilitate New York (and other) wine lovers in having more access to wines. Yes, buying from wineries is great but buying from other stores in other states also has advantages. What’s going on? Please post any insights or experiences in the comments.
