Amazon adds wine to its catalog
The announcement was made recently when Amazon held an event in Napa, California, inviting a number of wine industry entrepreneurs. On occasion, also spoke of the action plan in terms of Amazon sales and percentages to distribute both the chain and by those who want to sell their products through the service.
The idea is to start selling wine on Amazon before the end of 2012 is gone, and taking advantage of the year-end festivities. You have to give almost for granted that the initial offer will be only in the U.S., but since some questions to jump and how to deliver the goods. Mainly because the regulations in that country for the sale of alcohol are very strict about the minimum age limit allowed by law and generally are strictly.
This is the second attempt by Amazon to enter this new market. The first dates from a few years ago, but remained in limbo after his partner in the company suffered financial problems that led him to suspend operations. Will the second time lucky for Amazon? It appears so.
