WineDirect ceases shipping to South Dakota effective 8/1/2016
After opening up to direct-to-consumer shipping in January, South Dakota has decided not to allow third-party fulfillment providers to ship wine into the state on behalf of wineries. We have attempted to resolve this issue directly with the state, but unfortunately have been unsuccessful.
We are actively pursuing negotiations with South Dakota and hope that we will be able to reach a resolution and resume shipping services to the state in the future. In the meantime, you may continue to ship to customers in South Dakota directly from your winery, provided you have the appropriate licenses in place.
We encourage you to contact the South Dakota Department of Revenue to let them know how important direct-to-consumer shipping is to you and your customers. They can be reached at 1-800-829-9188 extension 2 or via email at email@example.com.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact your Account Manager.
