    I’ve placed wine in my checked luggage using the wine diaper. I even tried pouring an entire bottle out, and my luggage was unscathed.

    But what about transporting a case of wine? I found a cheap way of doing it with some items intended to help with moving. While it worked, the wine was heavy and I couldn’t get it to stop rocking while I walked.

    But I think I found my ultimate solution.

    The Wine Check:


    Keri and I were out in Napa and Sonoma and were enjoying the wines out there and needed a way to bring them back.

    Cue dramatic re-enactment of enjoying wine out in Sonoma:


    Dramatic enough?

    I packed my twelve bottles of wine into the Wine Check.


    It basically has a wine shipper inside of it but the top half of the shipper is more snug than a usual wine shipper.


    I packed in ten bottles of regular sized wine and two bottles of 375 ml dessert wine wrapped in tissue paper.

    The results?


    Twelve bottles are barely disturbed wine. The dessert wines held up really well, which were the ones I was most worried about.

    The Wine Check pulls along on wheels. I had trouble pulling it at first and then I realized I should be pulling it along with the longer strap instead of the short strap. Then it pulled along really easily.

    The Wine Check goes for about $88, but if you have a plethora of wine shippers, you can get the Wine Check itself sans shipper for $75.

    The only problem is that once we were done tasting all of our wines, we wished we had two wine checks.


    Alas, we had to leave a bottle behind. We donated it to Delta Diva. Such is life.
