Taking the family on a trip to wine country for summer vacation? Or are you simply a passionate wine lover who likes to share some of your personal collection when you travel abroad? It’s always a challenge when flying to decide how to get your wine back home. You may opt for a pricey shipping service or totally change your purchase habits and buy less or none at all. That’s no fun. The Wine Check travel case may be of help in these situations.
The Wine Check is a safe, convenient, and economical way to ship up to one case (12 bottles) of wine to and from where ever you travel, in an FAA-approved package! Your wine is protected by Wine Check’s patent-pending design, that encloses your wine in the included wine shipper box inside the secure padded case. The bag is lightweight (under 5 lbs.) and the attached wheels and strap make it easy to roll behind you! When packed with 12 bottles, The Wine Check stays under the 50 lb. airline weight limit for luggage and is collapsible and reusable, so you can store it and use it whenever you want to take wine with you.
The wine shipper box that is included is the same type of package used by wine shipping services so you know your wine will be protected. This also allows you to take the Wine Check collapsed without the shipper and stored in your suitcase and then you can easily use a shipper from the winery or any packaging store for your return trip. Furthermore, the baggage fee most airlines charge these days is often much less than the cost of shipping a case to your home from the winery or using a shipping service.
With Summer almost here and temperatures throughout half the country already soaring, you’d have to wait until late Fall at the earliest before any of that new wine you bought or want to ship arrived by a service. Wines can become damaged by heat, or “cooked,” when shipped in the hot summer months. Corks will often push and cause leakage leaving too much headspace in the bottle which speeds up ageing and oxidation. Ultimately, the aromatics and flavor profile will be greatly affected in a negative way making your wine undrinkable and a waste of money. With the Wine Check, you can safely and conveniently take some of that wine with you and enjoy soon after your trip. Not to mention, you are sure to make some new friends in at the concourse while your wheeling your liquid luggage to the ticket counter.
Don’t let the weather, extra costs or inconvenience get in the way of your enjoyment of wine. Take your wine with you with Wine Check. Cheers!
