Who is allowed to ship wine to Texans?

TABC has compiled a list of businesses that hold a permit to legally sell and ship wine statewide to adult residents of Texas via a TABC permitted carrier.

A U.S. winery outside of Texas that holds a Direct Shippers (DS) Permit is specifically authorized under Texas state law to ship the wine they produce directly to consumers in Texas.

A Texas Winery (G) Permit holder is specifically authorized under Texas state law to ship the wine they produce directly to consumers, as well as wine they have purchased from other wineries, wholesalers and importers.

Package stores (P) and wine only package stores (Q) who hold a local cartage permit are authorized to deliver (or ship) wine to consumers within the county, within the city, or within two miles of the city limits. However, not all package stores and wine only package stores offer this service.

NOTE: If A Business Has Recently Stopped Shipping Wine To You, It May Be Because They Don't Hold A Permit That Authorizes Shipments.

If there is a particular wine that you are interested in purchasing from a Texas winery or a retailer in your area, you can look on our on-line label approval database to find out if it has been approved for sale in Texas. Wines available from Out-of-State Winery Direct Shippers are not necessarily listed in this database.
