Buying Port in Pennsylvania

May 8, 2012
Question by: Steven, Pennsylvania, USA


I had a question regarding purchasing Port wine online.  I live in the state of Pennsylvania which does not obtain, at least in my immediate area, a vast selection of Port wines, in particular Vintage Ports.  I was curious to know your recommendations of reputable importers or websites where I could purchase Port wine.  I am always concerned that some importers or warehouses don't properly store wine, thus I would pay for a poorly stored or kept wine.


Hi Steven, we spoke with our American distributors Premium Port Wines.  They advise that in Pennsylvania all sales of alcohol are controlled by the State Liquor Control Board, so you can purchase Ports only through their stores.  They also have an on-line service called Fine Wine & Good Spirits, which offers delivery to your Pennsylvania address, or you can arrange to pick up your purchase at the nearest store.  Unfortunately the State does not tend to keep a broad range of Vintage Ports in stock, so it may be difficult to source specific Ports or Vintages in Pennsylvania.
