Compliance

Compliance applies to your wines, wine products and product bundles containing wine. Products, event tickets, gift cards, and other non-wine products are not checked for compliance. The WineDirect platform has a basic Yes or No compliance setting per State. This means that States marked as Yes will allow wines to be sold to customers shipping their wine to these States.
