(WGME) \u2013 With nearly 10,000 wineries in the United States, CBS 13 finds only a fraction of those wines can ship directly to wine lovers in Maine.{\/p}\u201cWe have a favorite wine from a winery in California,\" said Teri Champagne\"I tried to order it a few years back and they wouldn't ship to Maine.\"{\/p}Champagne \u2013 yes, that is her real last name \u2013 and her husband Richard ran into the restrictions of Maine\u2019s direct-to-consumer wine shipping laws.{\/p}Maine {\/a}requires out-of-state wine makers to get a license{\/a} to ship directly to homes in the stateThe license fee is $200Plus, a $100 application fee and a $50 yearly renewal.{\/p}Wineries are then required to track all shipments to the state, so the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations{\/a} can collect taxes.{\/p}According to the state, 550 wine producers went through this process in 2017 and are able to ship direct to consumers in Maine.{\/p}\u201cI think they're fairly liberal laws,\u201d said Greg Mineo, Director of the Maine Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations.{\/p}Mineo says Maine\u2019s wine shipping laws are similar to most of the country40 states, including Maine, require a license{\/a}.{\/p}\u201cI think the wine consumer in Maine is well served.\u201d{\/p}CBS 13 asked Mineo why more wineries don\u2019t go through the licensing processHe says it could be that they don\u2019t want to make the effort or pay the fee.{\/p}Cellardoor Winery{\/a} Owner Bettina Doulton \u2013 who does have a license to ship wine within the state \u2013 says many small wineries don\u2019t have the manpower to keep up on each state\u2019s wine shipping laws, and the paperwork that comes with it.{\/p}\u201cYou don\u2019t want to mess with breaking your liquor laws,\u201d Doulton said.{\/p}Doulton says Cellardoor Winery, which is based in Lincolnville with a tasting room at Thompson\u2019s Point in Portland, produced between 10,000-12,000 cases of wine last yearOf that, she says they shipped 420 boxes of wine through orders made at the winery and tasting room, and 42 online orders.{\/p}\u201cIt\u2019s absolutely tiny,\u201d said Doulton\u201cThat said, for people who want things shipped, it\u2019s really important for them.\u201d{\/p}Mineo says online wine orders are growing, but out-of-state online wine ships also face some hurdles shipping wine to Maine.{\/p}\u201cYou have to produce the wine that you intend to ship directly to a consumer,\u201d Mineo said\u201cSo typically, a wine club, if they're not producing a wine and usually they're notthey're not allowed to ship into Maine, direct to consumer.\u201d{\/p}Mineo says he believes there are wineries breaking the rules, but that it\u2019s hard to track, since delivery companies like FedEx and UPS are not required to report alcohol shipments to the state.{\/p}\u201cWe will stumble upon thingsWe will uncover, not unlike any other enforcement activity,\u201d said Mineo\u201cWe have to actually just find out about it through somebody who may actually turn somebody inThat happens from time to time.\u201d{\/p}Mineo says one way to get wine from a producer that does not have a license to ship to Maine is to go to your favorite wine store and ask them if they can get a bottle for youThe retailer can then ask their distributor.{\/p}If you don\u2019t want to do that extra work, Mineo says you can find 650 brands of wine licensed wine wholesalers distribute in Maine.{\/p}"}; sinclairDigital.pageData =
