Amazon shelves wine plans

Online retailer Amazon.com has abandoned plans to sell wine in the US after the project hit a series of problems.

The company confirmed the news some 18 months after reports of its scheme for direct wine sales first surfaced.

‘I can confirm Amazon will not be getting into the wine business,’ a spokesperson told decanter.com.

Amazon declined to reveal further details after an email from a senior executive to a number of wineries was leaked to the US media.
