Letters: PA wine shipping is a pain

Mr. Dowd:

Is it possible to buy Pennsylvania wine via an Internet order to ship to California in one week?

If so, who/what would you recommend? I'm throwing a bridal shower for a bride-to-be from PA.

Sorry, but it is illegal to ship wine from Pennsylvania to a destination outside the state.

Pennsylvania is one of the more restrictive states when it comes to interstate sales. In fact, it has a very cumbersome process for in-state shipping as well: You have to order the wine to be shipped to a state-licensed store, then pick it up there rather than having what you purchased sent directly to you.

Thanks for writing. And best wishes for the shower.
