Why can't you ship to other states?
Since the repeal of prohibition, the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages have been regulated by individual states. Each state has its own laws. Rarely do they coincide, and even more rarely do they allow an out-of-state company to sell wine without maintaining a license and inventory in their state.

Does your wine contain sulfites?
The term "contains sulfites" refers to the use of sulfur dioxide (SO2) employed as both a preservative and disinfectant in winemaking. SO2 is added in very low concentrations and without it the stability of wine could be jeopardized. Sweet wines need more SO2 than drier wines in order to inhibit possible bottle fermentation. It is virtually impossible to have SO2 free wine, as this naturally occurring chemical is one of the by-products of fermentation, including that which takes place in the making of bread and fruit juice.
