Did you hear Amazon to start selling wine... again?
Amazon.com is getting ready to go into the wine business. The online retailor plans to launch the new program in the coming weeks, just in time for the holiday season.
This is not the first time Amazon has tried to enter the wine business. In 2009, the company was prepared to launch, but its wine partner, New Vine Logistics, was having financial trouble. The plan was scrapped before it even started.
This time, Amazon is going directly to the wine makers. It met with Napa vintners on Sept. 24.
