We went to Italy last year and brought back 14 bottles of wine dispersed between our suitcases πŸ˜‚ We bought these wine jet bags at bed, bath and beyond https://m.bedbathandbeyond.com/m/product/jetbags-resealable-padded-wine-bags-set-of-3/1040393650?skuId=40393650&mcid=PS_googlepla_nonbrand_winebar_&adpos=1o1&creative=43742615509&device=m&matchtype=&network=g&product_id=40393650&gclid=CJfXtObL0s0CFUQehgod_-ACog And had no issues! No breakage, nothing! And a whole lot cheaper than the wine suitcase. We did get our suitcases wrapped at the airport (some international places offer this) and thankfully we did that because the weight of the wine in one suitcase split it in half, but the cellophane wrap kept it all together. And we happily enjoyed all 14 bottles this past y

We purchased the wine jet bags from bed, bath and beyond (11.99 for a three pack) for our trip to Italy last year and we ended up bringing back 14 bottles of wine no issues!

passthepeas:  My mom has this awesome trick where she brings the bubble wrap-like packaging from her toner cartridges to bring back wine in… But besides that, you could get a bunch of these for the same price.

Though I am really digging the idea of a wine suitcase as well, it would have to be something you’re sure you’d use over and over!

ETA: I usually just wrap the wine in clothes and I have never had a problem. We brought back wine from Italy and England, and will be doing so again this August from Greece and Turkey.

passthepeas:  luckily, no! We just put too much wine in one of them. We were actually under our weight limit. Oh, and don’t even claim it at customs. We tried to own up to it in Italy and US and nobody cared that we had so much wine. Those jet bags are awesome, they have cushion and an absorbent filler so if a bottle were to break it actually absorbs the liquid so nothing spills out onto clothes, etc. like a wine diaper πŸ˜‚

We actually used wine diapers when we went to Spain, and no issues! I am, however, intrigued by a wine suitcase.

passthepeas:  Another thought- could you acquire styrofoam to fill one of your existing suitcases? With a bit of glue and planning, you could probably make a pretty sweet wine foam holder for the inside of your current suitcase. ]

But I’m cheap πŸ˜›
