I had read that which is what has me confused. I don't understand how wine is not an intoxicating liquor? It seems you have to read into what they are saying.
I don't believe that you have to read into what they are saying at all. It helps to have an understanding of what exactly a liquor is...
Here the definition from Wikipedia:
A distilled beverage, liquor, or spirit is a drinkable liquid containing ethanol that is produced by distilling, i.e. concentrating by distillation, the alcohol and other compounds produced by fermented grain, fruit, or vegetables. This excludes
undistilled fermented beverages such as beer, wine, and hard cider.
Once you've seen the term defined, it really seems quite simple.
