  1. Les Brabetz

    The VinGardeValise Grande worked so very well. This is an easily handled and very sturdy carrying case. I have plans to use it a lot to transfer wine to my second home in Mexico. The customs people in Mexico were really interested in the case and liked it as well. It is a perfect solution to carrying wine as airline baggage.

  2. Lisa Nerkowski

    The VinGardeValise Grande is well thought out. Full of wine and rolled smoothly. I had a problem at the airport getting a certain airline to except it is a wine case because it is so nice and unlike the fabric/cardboard type. I sent a email to Vin Garde and received a call that same day. Told them what had happened and they are calling the airline corporate office to make sure their staff is aware of the wine valise. Incredible customer service.

    We wanted to express our thanks and admiration for your wonderful valise. We just returned from Reims, France where we purchased six bottles of champagne. I had purchased the valise for my husband in anticipation of our trip and it was superb. We lost none of our precious cargo and had room for a few clothes. Thank you again for this well designed product.

  4. Tom Luchetta

    I have owned my VanGardeValise for a little over a year now and it has paid for itself many times over. I rarely travel without it. I leave with it empty and return with it full of my precious cargo. It is very well designed and leaves no doubt your wine will return safe and sound. The foam molds also act as great insulation so you never have to worry about severe temperature changes. Having wine shipped is expensive and this has been a wonderful solution to that problem. It has afforded me the opportunity to collect and enjoy wines from around the world that many times are not available in the states. If you’re a wine enthusiast at any level, I can assure you won’t be disappointed with this product. It is definitely worth the investment!

    While planning our honeymoon to Tuscany I was looking for a wine case I could buy for the trip to bring back more wines safely and securely utilizing our free checked bag allowance and save on shipping.
    My research turned up VingardeValise®, I could not find anything like it or priced as competitively, so I bought one.
    The case easily fits 12 regular sized wine bottles and keeps they safe and snug (from Knicks and external temperature) in plenty of foam padding.
    When full the case easily comes in below the maximum 50lb checked bag weight.
    The case inserts are also modular so you can carry less than 12 bottles and pack clothes etc. in the rest, so ideal for taking your wine for weekends away too! I love this case and can’t wait for my next trip and to use it again. Highly recommended!

    Wheels are never covered by the airlines but the suitcase really does stand up to a lot. We played around with it, dropping it, doing things like that and it came through with flying colors. We’ve used it to ship back wines on planes and have never had a bottle break! Happy Customer! I cannot praise using VinGardeValise® enough. Lori B.

    After struggling with taking wine on trips and returning with the spoils of a trip, I finally decided to break down and purchase a purpose built wine case. I chose this one because it is thoughtfully designed, rugged, and priced right. There are some that are less expensive but a lot harder to lug around. Every hard case carrier that I have seen costs a lot more. Those of you that have had wine shipped home from across an ocean know that the shipping costs for a case are equal to or greater than the cost of this case. This is the answer for me. Two trips and it has paid for itself and I bet I will get a lot more than two trips out of it.

  8. Karen C

    Thank you VinGardeValise®! The case, filled with 12 bottles, weighed in well under 50 pounds. My wines arrived at my final destination safe and sound. I’ll be using the case again soon!

  9. Tony

    I received the new VGV® you sent me a few days ago, and it is in perfect condition. I also figured out what my confusion was with the insert. I am sending back 2 cartons to you: the first VGV® you sent (with the damaged insert), and the second insert you sent afterwards. They obviously do not fit together in the same box. Thank you very much for correcting my problem. You are a man of your word, and I will certainly recommend your product to my friends. I look forward to receiving the magnum insert, when they are ready.

    I live in Phoenix, AZ and recently used my new VinGardeValise® on trips to Paris, France and Austin, Texas. If I was rating this like a wine, it would have to be a perfect 100! Bold, I know, but absolutely deserving of the score! Yes, there are cheaper wine luggage options, but remember, you get what you pay for…and they are clumsy. Yes, there are more expensive options, but to me they look bulky and unwieldy. The VGV® is beautifully designed. The ease with which I rolled my case of wine through Charles de Gaulle Airport was astounding. I packed in the following: 3 Champagne, 4 Burgundy, 2 Bordeaux and 3 Rose’s. Fit like a glove! Beautiful. I had the same result on my Austin trip. Barry has thoughtfully designed the perfect wine luggage. I almost purchased something else until I saw a blurb in Wine Spectator…for me, that justified the WS subscription price right there! Believe me now (and buy it later!) DO NOT waste time looking at any other wine luggage. Save yourself some time and just buy the VinGardeValise®…now!

  11. Micaela & Sue of Loire Wine Tours and B&B

    Flying back from the Loire with your precious wine purchases? This is the best case on the market. Strong but light and robust. Easier to wheel than other cases tested! Can carry up to 12 bottles!

  12. Terry Close

    I brought this suitcase with me to Hawaii and it carried all 12 bottles safely. It was easy to maneuver, handle, roll, pack, and unpack. It’s a great idea and an even better execution. Love it!!

  13. Larry J Groganon

    We just used the VG Valise Grande for the first time. We brought home 3 signed Magnums and 6 regular bottles of Continuum (I had bought the VGV for just this reason since the magnums will be cellared for my new born grandchildren) The VGV and wine met the airline weight limits and were very secure. Everything arrived in perfect condition. After years of wrapping bottles in bubble wrap and placing in my luggage, or using expensive third party shippers to get my special bottles to South Carolina it is a relief to have a well built wine valise with which you can carry your wine in confidence. I highly recommend the VGV.

  14. Teresa Georgeon

    Love this piece. When we don’t need to fill both sides with wine we use one side for luggage. Its great!

  15. Mark Lowrieon

    A great suitcase for wine/beer/and other fragile items. This is the first product I’ve found that is great for wine or beer. It would be good to make different inserts to carry jars also. It snuggly packs a full case of wine and as advertised still comes out under 50 lbs. weight! I recently brought a full case from California to Hawaii with no problems at all! When traveling with less then a case of wine it is easy to use the extra space for clothing and other things. Last year I went to Germany and brought back a number of fragile items I needed to carry on planes, this suitcase would have protected them all with no problems! For the price it can’t be beat!

  16. Walter Loiselle

    We love the VinGarde Valise suitcase. Such great service!

  17. Shannon

    I love the suitcase – it has allowed me to bring some wonderful French champagnes back on two separate trips.

  18. Jill Cabral-Schinn

    I received a VinGarde Valise a few years ago as a wedding gift from my stepfather, and have be obsessed with it ever since! I used to work in the industry, and my husband and I did a lot of wine-related travel. Our VG Valise was always a trusty and greatly-valued companion. We even brought it with us on our honeymoon to Portugal! I sing its praises from the mountain tops, and have even been known break it out when we have fellow wine lovers over to show them how awesome it is.

  19. Drayton F.

    I love my Vingardevalise as I frequently use it to bring back wines from Europe… never a problem, always under 23kg maximum allowance, and perfect bottles every time upon arrival.

  20. Scott and Margaret N

    Thank you!! Love the new valise!
