I don't see anything in the bios of either UPS or FedEx that indicate an anti-alcohol bias, Paul. My impression is that wine is a small part of the alcohol picture for both shippers, and that they get creamed from time to time by the Feds or state regulators if excise or other taxes aren't collected.
Also, in felony states, an argument can be made that the shipping company is a co-conspirator if there is a violation of state law.
I personally blame the various state shipping laws -- it's easy to bitch at the carriers, but they do have an obligation to act in a lawful manner -- and that is very hard to do in the US.
