Importing Wine

Postby Betserai » Thu Jul 17, 2014 11:43 am

Hello there,

Can you please tell me how can I get the license to import wine from other countries to the state of Colorado USA.??

Do I need a license to import wine directly to my wine bar in Denver Co.?

Importing Wine

As I recall US "State Laws"(for the most part) govern activity within a State.  Federal laws govern inter-state and international aspects.  Importing, by definition in supra-State, hence the rules are the same throughout the United States.  Therefore, go see http://www.ttb.gov/itd/importing_alcohol.shtml

As to your 2nd question, it's nearly a repeat of your first, though you're being more specific as to where in Colorado you plan to deal in the imported wine(your wine bar); but you seem to question whether you even need a license(which in your first question, you assumed you did).  Again, as I understand it, yes, you need permission as well as some other elements(eg. tax identification numbers, probably bonding).  

Please understand, I'm not an attorney and no advice given here can substitute for somebody duly qualified and cognizant of your local, legal requirements.  Should you decide to go further into distributing the wines you import and you find yourself in need of systems to manage your sales team, get back to me and/or consult www.salessuite.net as they offer affordable tools and coaching in this area.

Good luck,
