Default How much wine can I bring into TN?

Does anyone happen to know how much wine you can bring back into the state of TN from Indiana? My friend is going to a winery in Indiana and would like to bring back some cases of wine.

Thanks!!

"On February 24th, 2009, Tennessee’s Attorney General issued Opinion No. 09-15, which concluded that consumers may not legally carry any amount of wine on their person into Tennessee. This ruling, prohibiting consumers from carrying wine into Tennessee, means that the federal on-site provision does not apply to consumers in Tennessee. Wineries are therefore prohibited from making shipments via common carrier to Tennessee consumers under any circumstance. All wine must enter Tennessee through the 3-tier system without exception."

Thanks for the quick reply... what a bummer!

Oh and I was wondering, for those of us who live on the state line of Kentucky and happen to shop on Fort Campbell, would this law apply to us as well? Seems ridiculous to think you can't buy alcohol at the Class Six and bring it home to TN!

TN has some very ridiculous and archaic laws when it comes to wine.

So probably can't do the cases thing but I'm sure they'd look the other way (or better yet - would never have any flippin' idea) if your friend brought back like 5-10 bottles.

That's what I mentioned to her... live on the wild side. She said it would be worth the misdemeanor anyway.

I can see it now, your friend being chased by a county officer. She finds a gravel road and starts yelling, YEE-HAW. I miss gravel roads.

This is how Nascar began!

Didn't I read that they were stopping cars at the state line for buying cigarettes and alcohol?

I'm almost positive, but I think the news was coming out of northeast Tennessee.
