Additional Information

Arkansas prohibits off-site direct-to-consumer sales, however, act 483 of 2013 allows wineries holding a Wine Shipping Permit to ship up to 1 case of wine in any calendar quarter to an AR consumer who purchased the wine on the premises of the winery. AR consumers must participate in an on-site sale in order for wine to be shipped directly to them.

  • Wine may only be shipped to a private residence.
  • Direct shippers must collect local sales tax, in addition to the $0.75 per gallon wine excise tax, 6.5% state sales tax and 3% liquor sales tax.
  • Act 483 requires each shipment to have a shipping label provided by the Arkansas ABC. Alcohol-specific shipping labels provided by FedEx and UPS may be used in lieu of obtaining a label from the ABC.
  • The ABC will mail applications to wineries upon request. To request an application contact the ABC at 501-682-1105.

The direct shipment of off-site sales (phone, fax and internet orders) are prohibited.
