A: Eligibility to ship directly to a state depends on two factors:
1. If the state allows direct wine shipments of any kind OR
2. If the state allows direct wine shipments, whether the winery has adhered to all of the prerequisites that the state has put in place to allow direct shipping.
Each state has different regulations and procedures that need to be adhered to. If Cupcake Vineyards doesn’t ship to a particular state it’s because either the state doesn’t allow direct shipping, or Cupcake is still meeting the proper regulations to be able to ship directly. We’re very sorry if you can’t order Cupcake’s Wines directly. If you’d like further information, please contact customer service at email@example.com or call 800-344-8851,ext. 359.
