Amazon has been known for selling books online. They have also been trying to introduce other products to sell online. One of those ventures was trying to go into wine selling online. But unfortunately, amazon is planning to shelve the idea.

Amazon has ditched the idea of selling wines online and may have already informed their wine retailer partners about it. The plan to sell wine started around 2008. But then certain difficulties arose that may have eventually led the online retail giant to cease going through with the idea.

Compliance issues with state laws governing wine shipping may have been one of the reasons. Its a good idea that may have gone bad for Amazon. But it may not be really a definite end to such an idea. Who knows, it might just become the next big thing in the future online.
