How do online companies make sure consumers are of age to drink?

Combating Underage Drinking

Most times, when alcoholic beverages are delivered to your door, companies require the person receiving them to show identification proving that he or she is 21 years old. For this reason, many companies will not ship to PO Boxes or honor requests to "leave it on the porch." If an order is returned for failure to provide proper proof of age, the buyer is usually responsible for payment of all wine shipping charges for the return.
