I live in Maryland and according to every source I can find, I can't have wine shipped to me. Therefore, I have my wine club ship it to my parents house in Virginia and have been doing this for the past 2 years.

However, my Personal Wine Consultant at my wine club said they can now ship to Maryland. Here is the direct quote:

"Yes we are able to ship in to all 49 states except Utah due to we use License Freight Forwarders which are temperature control trucks and this does allow us to ship to Maryland."

This doesn't correlate to:
- Free the Grapes (http://wineinstitute.shipcompliant.com/)
- The Wine Institute (http://wineinstitute.shipcompliant.com/),
- Other websites (http://www.wineaccess.com/monthly/signupmap.adp?),

Has anyone heard of such a thing? She is very insistent that they can ship to Maryland and the club is reputable.

Thanks,

Dave

shipping into Maryland from a winery is illegal. If you are personally in California, say, I believe it is permissible to buy some wine at a winter, schlep it personally to a wine shipping site, and send it to yourself.
However, efforts are underway to change this.
There is a thread on "wine conversations" here right now discussing proposed legislation in Maryland.

This is a link to the bill.
But, go to the wine conversations thread (https://forums.winespectator.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6826053161/m/402102984) and scroll to the end to see how you can really help.
