Wine Skin in Use

Back in August I posted about the Wine Skin to be used for travel. It’s a new "gadget" that is so simple I wish I’d thought of it. How did I not think of this?

Basically it’s bottle-shaped bubble wrap that seals, airtight, twice. You can safely and easily drop a wine bottle into your luggage. Even if it does happen to break, the liquid should be contained within the skin without leaking because of the special seal.

When we were in California in October, we purchased a couple of wine skins and put them to the test. I even put the skinned bottles in my own luggage, with my sweaters, to test them out. The bottles made it home unscathed and the skin was still sealed so tight we had to cut out the bottle.

They were available individually at many of the wineries and available online: $12/5.

Once you double-seal that package, you cannot re-use it. In the past, I’ve duct taped the thing closed, so that I could use it again, but that’s really not all that effective. Our Flickr slideshow on Wine Skins: [...]

    Hi Winegirl!

    I´ve just found your blog, in searching for tips on travelling with wine, and really enjoyed it.

    Here is a link to a product I found yesterday on the net, I believe it works fine. An inflatable sleeve for wines.

    I´ve bought a few, and hope to test them on my next travel to France.

    Cheers from Rio!
