During this uncertain and difficult time, it’s become clear that the success of your DtC wine shipping operations is more important than ever. While the industry grapples with the realities the pandemic has wrought for on- and off-premise sales, for many of our members we understand DtC shipping is a bright light.

With shipping volumes up significantly, the stakes are high—both in terms of compliance and in terms of meeting customer expectations around their wine shipments. Many states are intensifying their efforts to crack down on illegal shipments of alcohol into their state. This past year we have heard many unfortunate stories of wine being sent back or confiscated due to a winery not legally set up and compliant to ship into one or several states.

Our partner Sovos ShipCompliant can help make sure your DTC shipping is always in compliance and you experience smooth sailing as your wine club and other shipments head out the door. Their cloud-based software offers real-time compliance checks and tax determination so your DtC shipping operations stay healthy (not subject to penalties, fines, or worse) for the long haul. On top of that, their Delivery Experience solution helps you deliver top-notch customer service around shipping in this age of Amazon and a new level of comfort/desire to have wine delivered to a customer’s home.
