Have Wine, Will Travel

Brown Paper Bag Those bottles of wine you’re bringing to the restaurant deserve a better way to travel than inside a paper bag or some neoprene tote. You know who you are and what I’m talking about. And what about those times when you’re bringing more than just a couple of bottles? You’re not going to pack them inside a cardboard box and bring that over to your wine group or some fancy restaurant, are you?

Handmade Leather Tote

You want to make a good impression and show that you care about the wine you’ve collected. So whether it’s 2 bottles or 12 bottles, we’ve got you covered for wine luggage. For those times when it IS all about the presentation, you want to be sure that what you’re toting around your wine in is as impressive as the wine itself.

Italian Leather Tote

If you want to make a really big impression, our Handmade Natural 2-Bottle Leather Wine Tote will dazzle them. Made by Argentine artisans from thick, full-grain, leather with heavy-duty stitching, brass keyhole closures, an adjustable, detachable leather shoulder strap and a solid brass ID tag for engraving, this wine tote is all about craftsmanship and quality. The full-grain leather is stiff and sturdy enough to protect the wine and a suede divider prevents the bottles from clanking together.

Connoisseur Wine Bag For carrying 3 bottles in style, our 3-Bottle Italian Leather Tote is a great value. The hard black leather exterior and faux suede interior will gently hold 3 bottles in separate zippered compartments, while the adjustable leather shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. Chrome feet on the bottom allows the bag to stand upright.

If you’re more budget conscious but still want to travel with wine in style, take a look at the IWA exclusive Connoisseur Wine Bag. It comes with its own ice pack to keep your wine cool, the moisture-proof interior carries two bottles of wine between padded dividers (and 3 narrower bottles in a pinch, as shown in the photo). The interior side pocket can be used to hold a corkscrew, and Velcro holds the domed top in place. It has a leather-like vinyl exterior and an adjustable shoulder strap.

6-Bottle Wine Trolley How about when you need to carry more than a couple of bottles? Our 6-Bottle Wine Trolley is just the thing for big dinner parties, wine clubs or wine country travel. It’s insulated with adjustable padded dividers that let you hold 6 bottles or larger-sized bottles or a combination of bottles and food. It rolls easily on inline-skate wheels, the sturdy handle extends and collapses easily and two front feet hold the wine trolley upright when at rest. It’s made of black canvas with a PVC-backed polyester lining and comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. It you need to carry 12 bottles, check out our 12-Bottle Wine Trolley.

WineKaddy And finally, I saved the best for last with the ultimate wine carrier. Have you ever received a shipment of wine packed in a large cardboard box with the styrofoam inserts? If you’re environmentally conscious like me, you probably reused that box…at least until the cardboard got wet and started falling apart. Well, the WineKaddy 9-Bottle Wine Carrier is basically that styrofoam insert surrounded by a heavy-duty impenetrable, yet lightweight aluminum shell.

With its reinforced corners, road case-styled twist latches, full-length rubber gasket and sturdy top and side carrying handles, this road-worthy case will protect and insulate your wine and can be checked as luggage on the airlines. Unlike a cardboard box, the WineKaddy can be easily opened by the TSA for inspection and safely resealed without worries. It’s available in a hammertone antique bronze or silver finish. It comes with an easily detachable telescoping luggage handle and a 5-year warranty. Wow!

So recycle that paper bag, use that neoprene to carry beer and get yourself one of these stylish and functional wine totes to carry your wine.
