The e-commerce titan today launched Amazon Wine, a marketplace for more than a thousand wines from around the U.S.
So far, the list of eligible states is pretty limited. It includes California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Washington, D.C. However, Amazon said more will be coming soon.
All those young'uns hoping to order alcohol through the Web will have a tough time. Both the purchaser and recipient of wine must be at least 21 years old, Amazon said, and all shipments require an adult signature at delivery. In addition, purchases can't be sent to P.O. boxes or Amazon Lockers.
Along with the ability to purchase wine, the new store also includes details from winemakers, like tasting notes and recommended food pairings.
"People love to explore wine, but it is rare to have detailed information and opinions located all in one place," Tom Hedges of Hedges Family Estate in Red Mountain, Wash., said in Amazon's press release. "What Amazon has done with their new wine store is take the experience of hundreds of tasting rooms and put them online."
