Well, I ended up finding a special wine shipping box. It's essentially a double box with a form fitting interior for the bottle. Not that I would ever send wine across state lines or anything, but my evil twin may have marked it 100 year aged balsamic vinegar (to explain why it's insured for so much) and sent it via FedEX.

I like your style. I mean, your evil twin's style....

I didn't think it was illegal to ship from family member/friend to family member/friend if you made sure to mark "signature required" and the signature be that of an adult of age. I know my boss receives wine from his family at Christmas time going from Florida to NC or NY to NC. I've also ordered wine baskets online.

Sorry, I just never heard that it is illegal to ship wine.

Depends on the state. A lot of states allow wine to be sent in and out... I know there is a guideline about it...

If you go to Woot Wine : One Week, One Wine (SM) I know some people on there could help.

Around here there's a lovely store that has a full shipping center in it. Any time someone brings in wine to ship, they mark it as "soda pop" and use those dual containers as well ;)

That's a VERY short list! most wineries (can and do) ship to a great deal more!

Here's Childress Vineyards' policy:

Note: We can ship our Childress Vineyards merchandise to all 50 states, but due to restrictive laws, Childress Vineyards can legally ship wine to the following states at this time: Alabama(with Permit), Alaska, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida(except counties:Lafayette, Liberty, Madison, Suwannee, Washington), Georgia, Louisiana,Michigan, Minnesota, Montana(with Permit), Nevada, New Hampshire(except counties: Brookfield, Ellsworth, Landaff, Monroe, Sharon), New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.

So it must vary on where you are. I do see from that list why I've never had a problem receiving wines. California is on both lists and North Carolina is on the Childress list. I'm sure someone could use lists like this to deny knowledge of violating any rules.

This may help, or it may cause even more confusion

The problem hasn't been the legality of shipping the wine as per government; it's been the legality of shipping wine as per carrier rules (FedEX, UPS, etc.).

They'll only ship wine from authorized dealers and distributors, neither of which are me. The wine itself is going from a "free grape" state to a "free grape" state.
