After Prohibition the United States Federal Government wisely took a step back and allowed the states to create their own alcohol laws.  As you might expect, what has transpired over the past hundred or so years has left the entire system a bit of a mess overall.

From many state’s spitting on the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, to others not allowing any shipment of alcohol at all, to others goal tending for local retailers and wineries the current state of affairs leaves something to be desired.

For the average cheap wine club it makes life difficult, but luckily there are a number of trade groups working to overturn these archaic and unfair laws.
