Traveling with Wine – the BottleWise Solution

Now that liquids are prohibited in carry-ons, bringing a bottle or two back from a trip is risky business. My wife and I visited beautiful Victoria, British Columbia last week to run the marathon. While we were there, we tasted some fantastic B.C. wines from the Okanagan Valley on Vancouver Island.

I bought a bottle to take back for my parents, and was forced to pack it into my checked suitcase by rolling it up in some clothes. When I picked up my bag from the luggage carousel in Toronto, I half expected to see a red stain in the bottom and find a shattered bottle of Merlot mixed in with my clothing. I breathed a sign of relief when I saw that it survived the trip intact.

To take the worry out of checking wine in your luggage, the ingenious people at BottleWise have launched a line of wine travel bags. Their bags are specifically designed to keep a bottle of wine safe in checked-in luggage, using padded, liquid-tight packs. They also recently introduced a new version called the BottleWise Duo that holds two bottles, plus two very stylish limited edition two-bottle bags, the $65 Duo TX, made of Denier Cordura with accented trim, and the $125 fine-grained leather Duo LX. Both would make a perfect holiday gift for the wine-drinking traveler.
