wine in your checked luggage

Jump to last reply

Back before the ban on liquids, I used to pick up interesting wines on my travels and cart them home in my carry-on. That's not possible anymore, alas.

I vaguely remember seeing an ad for something that supposedly let you safely pack a wine bottle in your checked luggage (called WineSkin maybe?). Has anyone used this? Can you give me any info on what it is and whether it's worth getting? And does it really work? Checked luggage can get really abused!

I wouldn't be buying expensive wine, probably around $20/bottle max. It's just the souvenir value and maybe bringing home a neat little wine that I enjoyed and couldn't get at home.

I'm going to Argentina in Sept and I know there will be good wines in abundance. I do have to transfer within the States, so wine in my carry-on is totally impossible.
