Curious about how to travel with wine? Whether you’re traveling by plane, boat, or car, I’ve got you covered, and you only need one—possibly unique—thing.
If you’re worried about your wine bottles clinking and shattering—ouch, talk about a party foul—take note with this super easy way to travel with wine.
Before You Pack it Up
First things first: if you’re flying, check with the TSA to make sure their regulations on traveling with alcohol. The stipulations change depending on the alcohol volume. And if you’re cruising, check with your specific cruise line for their alcohol, beer, and wine rules.
How to Travel with Wine
It’s super simple: grab some diapers. Yup, you read that right: diapers.
Here’s why we like diapers for when we travel with wine. If a bottle breaks and it’s wrapped in a diaper, the diaper will absorb the liquid.
Then, we always put the diapered wine bottle in a ziptop bag, that way it’s all contained.
Yes, those extra bulky bottles will take up space depending, especially depending on how many bottles you’re taking, but if the wine is that important to you, it’s totally worth it.
Size 2 or size 3 diapers work best, and if you want to put more than one bottle in a bag get some of the extra large, two-gallon ziptop bags.
Given the opportunity to BYOW (bring your own wine), we almost always pack up a bottle or two. Not only is it cheaper than buying it wherever we are, but then we can take our favorite varieties with us.
