Michigan Wine Delivery

Things to know about wine delivery in Michigan

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 Michigan?

Yes, you can get wine delivered to Michigan, with caveats. Only specially-licensed and permitted wineries may send wine directly to consumers homes or offices in Michigan. Limited options exist for wine delivery from retailers to MI residents. Additional excise taxes apply. Purchase limits apply. A person 21 years or older must sign for the package when it is delivered. See below for more details.

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. Michigan no longer has any dry communities.

The State of Michigan allows wineries outside of Michigan to deliver wine to Michigan residents via Common Carrier (FedEx, UPS, etc.). These companies must obtain a Direct Shipper Permit (among other requirements). Shipments must not exceed 1500 12-bottle cases to the entirety of the state per year. All direct-shipped wine is subject to a $0.135 per liter wine excise tax (a standard bottle of wine is 0.750L) 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 Michigan

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 MI 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 MI: 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 MI residents). There are other legal ways to ship wine to Michigan 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.

Wine Stores

In Michigan, outdated wine shipping laws going back to Prohibition are still in place, impeding or outright preventing interstate shipping of alcohol from retailers directly to consumers. Since you are affected by these outdated laws, we recommend communicating with your state legislature through the action form at Free The Grapes!

Wine producers (wineries and vineyards) must be licensed by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission to ship wine directly to consumers.
