Special Suitcase is Solution to Traveling With Wine

March 31, 2020 – Travelers who love to frequent wine country know the problem so well:  how to safely ship their precious purchases back home.  VinGardeValise offers a safe and practical solution.

It’s a very well designed and manufactured suitcase with high-density foam inserts that snugly fit the average wine bottle.  The VinGardeValise web site shows how the inserts can be swapped out if you want to include a couple of wine glasses or maybe a magnum.  The clever designers have thought of everything.  It comes in three sizes:  the 12-bottle Grande; 8-bottle Petite; 5-bottle Piccolo and in each one it is possible to convert one half of the case to carry clothing, etc.  Or if your travel plans don’t include a winery visit, just remove the inserts and the whole suitcase can be used for clothes and personal effects. 

We love how versatile these cases are and we like the manufacturer’s 10-year limited warranty. The large case filled with 12 x 750 ml bottles will weigh 45 to 50 lbs just making the cutoff for overweight bags at most airlines.  All bags come with a TSA approved lock.

So can you be confident VinGardeValise will get your wine home safely?  The reviews have been extremely positive and as Barry Wax the creator told Rachel Cormack of The Robb Report recently, he spent three years testing the first iteration of the case tossing the bag, fully loaded, down steep staircases in Istanbul and into the harbor in Hong Kong without losing a single drop.
