Each state has its own set of rules governing the shipment of wines to and from that state.
Oregon is a “Reciprocity” state, meaning it has passed legislation allowing shipment of wines to and from other Reciprocity states with few restrictions. This doesn’t mean consumers can send wine through US Mail — that’s illegal — but it does mean consumers in Oregon (or other Reciprocity states) will have an easier time purchasing from wineries, and shipping to their home.
Other states have much stricter regulations, to the extent of making shipping wine a felony crime!
OregonWines.com is not an authority on shipping laws. We would advise anyone concerned about Oregon shipping laws to contact the winery from which they wish to purchase wines.
