Legal for 19 year old to bring wine to US in checked luggage from Europe?

Jump to last reply

my 19 year old daughter is working at a winery in Europe & would like to bring us a couple of bottles of wine in her checked luggage when she returns from Europe. Since her originating country doesn't have a specific drinking age, would that mean she could bring a couple of bottles of wine back to the States?

I know that she can be taxed if she brings more than a couple of bottles, I believe, by US Customs, but I don't know if being underage for alcohol is an issue that US Customs has the authority to address.

We'd love for her to bring some wine back, so are trying to figure out if it's legally okay!

Thanks for any help you might have!
