Virginia Wine Shipping Laws

Virginia is a garden state, full of giant farms and beautiful scenery. Yes, there are many wineries in this region!

Hurrah! As of June 2, 2003, Governor Mark Warner signed into law a bill which allows Virginia residents to order up to 2 cases a month for their personal consumption.

The bill was:

SB 1117
Alcoholic beverage control; wine shippers' licenses.
Patron - Emmett W. Hanger, Jr.

This is awesome because not only can Virginia people ship wine in, but it means the many fantastic wineries of Virginia can finally ship wine OUT to other states, where people have been wanting to receive their wines!

Let me know if you have any fresh information about Virginia wine shipping laws! If you have recently had wine shipped in to you here, please let me know how smoothly the experience went. Often the laws say one thing, but FedEx and UPS say another!
