Approved wine sellers

Sellers must include the following information within each item description:

  • Link to our alcohol policy page: http://cravelocal.com/shopping-policies
  • A lawful shipping policy that specifies the states to which you can ship wine (if any), and any restrictions on such shipments (for example, whether the wine can be shipped directly to consumers)
  • State-by-state eligibility requirements for potential buyers, indicating whether buyers in particular states would be required to receive wine at a particular location in the seller’s state, instead of having it shipped directly.
  • The buyer’s age requirement.
  • Language which lets buyers know that the seller has been pre-approved by Crave Local prior to listing wine.

Wine buyers

In order to purchase wine on Crave Local from pre-approved wine sellers, buyers must meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • If the recipient of the wine isn’t the buyer, the buyer must make sure that the recipient is at least 21 years old
  • Make sure that the transaction follows all interstate commerce laws, including all laws around shipping and fulfillment

Buyers, by bidding on or purchasing these items, warrant and represent that they are aware of and are in compliance with their own state laws and regulations.

State laws

Every state in the US has different laws for the sale of wine, especially when dealing with wine sales across state borders. Members should fully research and understand federal and state laws before listing wine. If you want to sell wine, you should also take the time to review state shipping restrictions that are in the Requirements for wine-related transactions on Crave Local section below. The Wine Institute is a great place to find more information on the laws for selling wine.

Requirements for wine/spirits-related transactions on Crave Local

  1. Limitation of liability: Both buyer and seller expressly acknowledge and agree that Crave Local shall not be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages or lost profits (however arising, including negligence) resulting from or in connection with the sale of property on the Crave Local site.
  2. Representations and warranties:
  • Each seller represents and warrants that:
  • The seller of the wine has the right, power, and authority to sell the wine.
  • The owner of the wine owns all necessary and required licenses to lawfully carry out wine-related transactions on our site, and ship the item to its purchaser.
  • The recipient (and buyer if different from the recipient) has proven he or she is 21 years of age or older prior to delivery.

  1. Indemnification: The seller is solely responsible for compliance with all laws associated with the sale of wine.

  2. Shipping: Certain local, state, and federal laws and regulations govern and limit a seller’s ability to sell and ship wine and other alcohol. As a seller, you are solely responsible to consult with legal and/or other experts to determine which laws and regulations may impact your activities and to fully abide by those laws and regulations. Since each state has its own regulations governing the shipment of wine, seller must clearly note which states it is able to ship to in the item description.
  3. Age: Wine shipped by seller requires the recipient to be in possession of photo identification confirming he/she is 21 years of age or older. Buyer, if different from recipient, must also show proof of age.
