Wine Check Bag Only Red (P/N WINECHECK). Don't Ship Your Wine, Check It!

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 a wine shipper box* inside the secure padded case. It's 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! The Wine Check is collapsible and reusable, so you can store it and use it whenever you want to take wine with you. Whether you're purchasing wine on a vacation or want to take some on a trip, The Wine Check makes traveling with wine safe and easy and costs less then shipping it!

If you purchase the bag only, the best places to look for a wine shipper box are offsite wine storage facilities, since they receive so many 1Set of 2 shipper boxes for their clients. Be sure to call ahead first. Also, local chain liquor and wine stores will sell 1Set of 2 shipper boxes in the back of the store. Also, larger wine shops often have 1Set of 2 shipper boxes that they are happy to unload for free or a small price.

According to the manufacturer, the Wine Check fits nearly ALL wine shipper boxes and inserts (they've yet to find one that doesn't fit). The preferred, and most common, shipper box size is 18.5 x 14 x 16 inches.

While nearly all of the lay-down, pulp wine shippers will fit in The Wine Check, some airlines REQUIRE Styrofoam.

a little wonky

by Lin
We do love the wine bag - we have 2. But I agree, it is a little wonky. I rigged up a handle extension that works better. And yes, a cardboard case works just as well as the styrofoam insert.

Just got the bag

by Susan - verified purchaser
Have not used it yet, but it is much larger than I expected. Folded flat it fits nicely in my suitcase. Doesn't fold as flat as I expected because of the wheels but it will work. Our trip is coming up soon. I think we will bring a roll of bubble wrap and just get a box from one of the wineries. I'm excited to see how it works.

Good Protection for your Wines

by Rick
Bag is sturdy with good handles. Like other reviewers, the handle strap seems misplaced. It should be higher on the side. The low location makes it harder to use due to the angle you're pulling. We ended up running the strap up through the handle to help with this, but it obviously shortened the strap.

This bag does not work with some of the current case boxes. It's sized for traditional boxes with Styrofoam inserts. However, wineries are using fewer Styrofoam carriers. As they go green, recyclable boxes of cardboard or fiberboard type material (think heavy duty egg crates) are used almost exclusively. These boxes & inserts are usually larger than the boxes utilizing Styrofoam inserts.

Took this with us on our wine trip to France. Worked perfectly - used my own box I had from one of my wine shipments since the shippimg was crazy expensive when you look to buy the complete set. It gets a lot of looks everywhere you are since it is so bright! Would definitely recommend this item (and actually have)! Would make a great gift for that oenophile in your life.

TSA rules

by vicky
I just talked to TSA and they said I can only check 5L per bag, thus my husband and I would EACH have to check our 5L in separate bags vs. all 12 bottles in one wine check - anyone have experience with this?

I had one, now i have three

by Bob
I agree with the 4 wheels comment but there isn't much else out there that does what this does and I needed to bring back as luggage a bunch of bottles we didn't want to trust to shipping. Anytime you drag 3 bright red bags into the airport you are going to get a few looks.

Nice Bag,could use a little design change

by Debbie G.
Nice bag, but I'd change the design a little. It would be easier to use if it had 4 wheels instead of 2, to pull it like a wagon. As it is now, fully loaded with wine, it's a bit challenging to pull and balance the weight.
