Online Wine

When the General Assembly passed legislation allowing Maryland consumers to purchase wine directly from out of state wineries I didn't think that would include Amazon.

I was wrong.

According to this story by Steve Kilar in The Sun, we can now “cozy up with both a book and a bottle of wine purchased from the online retailer.”

Forget about getting free shipping with your Amazon Prime account though. Wine purchases don’t qualify. You can’t escape the state tax man either.

I think I’ll just stick with the local wine merchants…for now.
