Budman,
I am trying to visualize the styrofoam wine boxes. Are they checked as they are or do you have to put them inside a suitcase? I guess I am having trouble understanding that styrofoam alone is secure enough to withstand a flight in cargo.

milliebz and letour,

Visualize taking bubble wrap (kinda light and protects things both ways)with you.

If you see something interesting during your trip, pack it in your checked luggage before you head home, there's no problem about handling, etc....

Once again, always declare the alcohol. Your aren't going to waste their time for a buck fifty.

milliebz, Here's a picture of what they look like. The 12 bottles fit into each cylinder, and the top is formed to hold the neck of the bottle into place. The bottom of the bottle may move around a little bit since the cylinders are made for some larger bottles such as Pinot Noir, but that's not a problem. They hold up well in the belly of an airplane with all the roughness of the baggage handlers.
