Untangling the complex world of wine direct shipping and compliance

FedEx begins shipping to Vermont

November 6th, 2006
By Jeff Carroll - VP of Compliance, ShipCompliant

From their wine landing page:

FedEx Express and FedEx Ground expands wine shipping services to accept legal wine shipments to consumers into, out of, and within Vermont. The effective date is November 1, 2006. For those shipping wine to VT consumers, please note changes on State Pairing Guide.

Vermont’s consumer direct legislation actually went into effect in May of this year, but this is the first time that a carrier has been approved to ship into Vermont. Licensed wineries can now officially begin shipping. The application requirements and license restrictions are spelled out pretty clearly in Vermont’s instructions on the permit application. In a nutshell, the permit costs $300, there are sales tax, excise tax, and reporting requirements, and a twelve case per calendar year per customer volume limit applies.
