Alabama Wine Delivery

Things to know about wine delivery in Alabama

FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

Can you ship wine to Alabama?

Your options are limited, but yes, you can get wine shipped to Alabama. These restrictions about to change. Effective August 1, 2021, you can get wine shipped to Alabama from wineries, with caveats. Limited options exist for wine delivery from retailers to AL residents. Skip the fine print

The Fine Print

Dry Communities: A dry community is one in which sales (or delivery) of alcoholic beverages are prohibited. A “dry” community is one in which sales (or delivery) of alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Alabama has no completely dry counties at present, but does have 26 counties that are “moist” — that is, dry but with special circumstances.

The State of Alabama will soon (as of August 1, 2021) allow wineries outside of Alabama to deliver wine to Alabama households via Common Carrier (FedEx, UPS, etc.). These companies must obtain a Direct to Consumer Permit (among other requirements). There will be an annual limit of 12 cases per producer per AL consumer. All direct-shipped wine will be subject to a wine excise tax in addition to any applicable sales taxes. Someone 21 years old or older must be available to sign for the package upon delivery.

Buyer beware. While we do our best to make it easy to find wine that can be delivered to your state, each winery and retailer is the final say in whether they will ship to consumers. Those that do so without a permit often disclose on their site in the Terms of Service, Legal, or Shipping pages that you are responsible for obeying the laws of your state, not the retailer.

How to get wine delivered in Alabama

Whether you are shipping to yourself, a friend, a colleague, or a family member, you must purchase alcohol and have it mailed by an entity with a valid liquor license. As a non-licensee it is never legal for you to ship alcohol yourself in the United States, much less to AL residents.

Wine may be delivered via FedEx, UPS, or other private shippers, but the USPS does not permit the shipping of alcohol of any kind. These types of services deliver wine to AL: wine subscriptions, wine stores, same-day delivery, wine gift services, and wineries.

Wine subscriptions with wine delivery to Alabama

Wine Subscriptions: Some wine of the month clubs are both retailers and wineries (like Firstleaf and Nakedwines.com), so they are able to ship wine as a producer (a better delivery experience for AL residents).

There are other legal ways to ship wine to Alabama residents but we don’t check how each wine subscription service goes about doing it — the companies who offer wine subscriptions are responsible for the legalities of their shipping policies.

Wine stores who deliver wine to Alabama

In Alabama, outdated wine shipping laws going back to Prohibition are still in place, impeding or outright preventing interstate shipping of certain wines from retailers directly to consumers. The wine you personally can buy is limited by these outdated laws. The stores shown below can ship wine to you, but which wines they are allowed to send you may be limited by these laws.
