If you had any doubts about Amazon taking over the food and beverage industry, here's even more evidence: You can now order wine on Amazon Prime and they will deliver it to your door in an hour.

Yes, wine in one hour is now possible.

Amazon's Prime Now is a super-fast delivery service where you can buy anything from chapstick to clothing to toothpaste. But there's one important feature you might have missed if you've used this service before: You can also get wine and beer. You can get free delivery for Prime Now products with a two-hour delivery window, but if you need it in under an hour, than you can pay an extra $8.

Right now this feature is only available in the following select cities (sorry):

  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • New York, New York
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Richmond, Virginia
  • San Diego, California
  • San Francisco Bay Area, California
  • Seattle, Washington

In case you don't live in one of these 12 cities, you have other options for booze delivery, including the likes of Instacart and Drizly.

In case you've missed it, Amazon has been making waves in the food industry the last few months, most significantly with it's acquisition of Whole Foods. Even though this takeover happened less than three months ago, Amazon has already made changes by slashing prices at the organic grocer.
