Internet Becomes Primary Marketing Tool for Direct-to-Consumer Wine Shipments

Share Article

There is a growing trend in the United States that directly expands the wine industry's marketing prospects. Last year's Federal Court rulings signaled extraordinary changes to how wine products will be sold in the United States. Both the Federal Courts and State Legislators are progressively ruling in favor of wineries being able to sell and ship their wines across state lines directly into consumer's homes.

Florida is leading this trend with legislators relaxing their state's laws that govern purchase and shipping of in state and out-of-state wine products. Indications are that other states may soon adopt this commerce-motivating approach.

Removal of state trade barriers combined with the growing trend of consumer Internet accessibility makes the future bright for both the wine industry and their enthusiastic customers. It is no wonder why local wineries and wine distributors are migrating their operations to the Internet and starting to realize the power of web-based business applications.
