Amazon is ready to start selling wine in the US, the Financial Times reports.
According to Decanter, a UK-based wine publication, Amazon will work in partnership with wine.com.
It wouldn’t be simple, as the Motley Fool explains:
Pimping vino via cyberspace is a thorny issue. Moving libations over state lines is a regulatory challenge. That may explain why Amazon pulled the plug on its 1999 minority stake in WineShopper.com – which now simply redirects to privately held Wine.com – even before the dot-com bubble popped.
There is no mention in any reports about beer.
