Amazon.com to sell wine online

Company's consumables division is looking to hire a senior wine buyer for its Specialty Foods Group

Amazon.com may be getting into the online wine-selling business.

According to a job posting on Amazon's Web site, the company's Consumables division is looking to hire a senior wine buyer for its Specialty Foods Group.

An Amazon spokeswoman said the company wasn't commenting beyond the ad, which was posted last Wednesday.

According to the posting, the senior buyer must have broad experience in the wine industry and will be responsible for the "acquisition of massive new product selection" and "will work to build out our entirely new selection from the ground up."

Currently Wine.com, the largest online wine seller in the US, sells food baskets, but not wine, via the Amazon Web site.

In 2005, the US Supreme Court ruled that users could buy wine over the Internet, and that individual states couldn't pass laws forbidding people from buying wine over the Internet from out-of-state wineries.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
