Naked Wines is direct to consumer

With the imminent crack down on interstate shipping, 38 states already ban it and New York's move is sure to provoke a round of retaliatory enforcement, some promising wine sale models that depend on interstate shipping seem a little less likely to thrive. None the less there is still a lot of interest, and a lot of money being placed behind these endeavors. Some are retailers or wine cubs, and they will be the most impacted by these enforcement issues, but others, like Naked Wines are really wineries and subject to different laws regulating interstate sales and shipping.

Naked Wines just received a $10 million round of financing following on the heels of their $50 million 2012 fiscal year, where they saw their first profit of $1.5 million. Off to a promising start and well financed, Naked Wines looks poised to change how the wine world operates.
