After steady progress over the last decade, we can now ship to consumers in 39 states. A visual overview:
If you'd like to understand how we've gone from 13 shipping states in 2005 to the 39 currently, why we still can't ship to some states, or what the prognosis is for the holdouts, we have a detailed analysis on our blog.
We are thrilled that the great states of Arizona, Pennsylvania and Indiana passed solid direct-shipping laws. We have just received our shipping permits, and residents of all three states can now order wine or sign up for VINsider Wine Club membership.
Unfortunately, we are still waiting for a permit from New Jersey. The state passed a shipping bill in 2012, but the legislation includes a licensing process that did not take into account partnerships like ours that include foreign owners, and we are in limbo without any immediate expectation of progress. If you would like a note when we are able to ship there, please join our mailing list.
Direct wine shipping is growing, but also under constant attack. States without reasonable direct shipping provisions restrict consumer access to thousands of wineries, nearly all of them small, and tens of thousands of wines with productions too small to make it into distribution.
For more information about the issue, or how to get involved in this and other direct shipping debates going on in states like Florida, Pennsylvania and Arizona, visit www.freethegrapes.org.
We are working actively to increase the number of states we can ship wine to (and open for our wine club). However, we are also committed to protecting our consumers from questionable or unscrupulous shipping practices. We only ship to states to which we are allowed by state law, and we mark our shipments clearly as wine. We use UPS and FedEx to ship our wine, and all shipments require an adult signature. If you live in a non-shipping state, we’re happy to help you find local retailers or wholesalers who carry our wine. Want help finding our wines? View our list of distributors, or contact us!
There are several states currently debating direct shipping. Interested in making a difference at the state level? Support Free the Grapes.
The current list of states to which we can ship wine is AK, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI, WY. Interested in knowing as soon as we can ship to you? Sign up for our mailing list!

As many of you know, we have been building up our flock this year. The animals help build up our soil, spreading manure thoroughly and evenly, reducing or eliminating our need to bring in outside fertilizer. They help keep weeds down and reduce the number of tractor passes we need come spring. And they attract different microbes and insects into soil that is vibrantly alive in a way that just doesn't happen in a monoculture. The past few years, we've had around 80 sheep, along with a few alpacas, two donkeys, and a llama. Now, thanks to a fertile winter season, we're up to 165 sheep, plus the other members of the menagerie. The flock can at times be seen from the tasting room, but is more often working quietly, out of view: Read More »
