We saw some Shopify forums in the past that stated that alcohol sales are not permitted through Shopify Payments, and that liquor stores would have to use other means of receiving payments.

Has this changed? Are wine products now okay to sell through Shopify Payments? If so, how does the application process work for selling alcohol via Shopify Payments?

All accounts are subject to individual review so there is no definitive answer to that question. Certainly, it will help if you make sure your store is perfectly aligned with Shopify's acceptable use policy and Shopify Payment's terms of service. The Risk assessment team will reach out if they require further information.
I hope that helps!
All the best, Hyde.
