Things to know about wine delivery in Louisiana
Yes, you can get wine delivered to Louisiana.

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.
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 LA 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 LA: wine subscriptions, wine stores, same-day delivery, wine gift services, and wineries.
Wine Subscriptions: Some wine of the month clubs are both retailers and wineries (like Winc and Nakedwines.com), so they are able to ship wine as a producer (a better delivery experience for LA residents). There are other legal ways to ship wine to Louisiana residents but we don’t check how each wine subscription service goes about doing it — companies who offer wine subscriptions are responsible for the legalities of their shipping policies.
