South Carolina has become the 24th state to legalise direct interstate wine shipments to consumers. Out-of-state wineries will be allowed to ship up to 24 bottles of wine per month to residents who are 21 and older for their personal use. Wineries must obtain a permit, pay a $400 fee every two years, ensure shipping containers are properly marked and report and pay state taxes annually. Shipments are expected to begin once South Carolina's department of revenue finalizes application and reporting forms.
