Web, of course, is a great source to shop for wine. There is no
problem ordering and having your wine shipped to you from within
the state you live. However, with the current shipping laws, you
may run into problems when trying to order wine from certain states
or from outside the U.S. Most "Web merchants" inform you if any
regulations might prohibit wine shipments from their location to
your state of residence.
A word of caution!
If you plan on aging wine, be careful whom you purchase it from.
Be sure that you know the reputation of your wine merchant. An improperly
stored wine will not have a long shelf life.
