One of the easiest and most enjoyable things about a trip to wine country – whether it is a tasting tour through Napa, or stopping at vineyards as you vacation in Europe – is the amazing opportunity to bring home bottles of the wine you’ve fallen in love with.
The hard part? Getting those bottles back to your own cellar in one piece.
Traditional wine bottle carriers and totes may work if you’re driving, but they are not likely to withstand a lot of jostling. Shipping them in packed luggage does not guarantee their safety on the plane. A wine travel bag can only protect a bottle or two in your checked luggage. At most, it will protect your clothing from getting stained if the bottle breaks.
What about shipping multiple bottles? You can pack your precious finds in polystyrene and cardboard and pray your shipment arrives home intact, and without being exposed to temperatures that may ruin the taste of the wines packed inside forever.
What is the solution? The VinGardeValise®
The VinGardeValise® was developed to protect what Robert Louis Stevenson called “bottled poetry.” Made of rugged, lightweight durable 100% polycarbonate, the VinGardeValise® wine travel case is designed to protect an entire case of wine when you’re traveling or simply on the go. Whether you’re planning to collect wine on a vacation or carrying your personal cellar stock with you to a weekend bash, this wine bottle carrier will keep your wine safe and ready to enjoy.
You can customize the modular interior design to suit your needs, using it to hold two to twelve bottles of wine.
If you plan to carry under twelve bottles, you will have enough space for clothes, books or anything else you plan to pack.
The bottle modules adjust to accommodate regular 750 ml bottles, including Riesling and Champagne. You can also opt for additional insert modules to carry up to six 1.5 litre magnum bottles or the extra-large 750 ml bottles that some boutique wineries use.
Depending on your bottle selection, even when fully loaded, the VinGardeValise® weighs less than 50 pounds, which means no overweight luggage fees!
Rest assured that our wine carriers will protect your wine no matter how roughly your baggage is handled, and still meet airline, FAA, and TSA luggage standards and restrictions.
The four spinner wheels, centered top, and side handles make it easy to carry or pull.
No one will know you have liquid treasure safely stowed in this wine travel case, keeping your wine safe from dodgy fellow travelers or baggage handlers.
