VinniBag Wine Carrier: A practical gift for the traveler

The vinnibag wine carrier

When we’ve traveled abroad, we’ve often tasted a special bottle of wine or liquor that we wanted to take home: There was pisco from our trip to Peru, tequila anejo from our stay in Los Cabos, Appleton rum from Jamaica, and burgundy wine from our barge cruise in France. Figuring out how to stow the bottle for its trip was always a challenge.

Then we found the VinniBag, a practical and inexpensive solution for any frequent traveler who wants to transport a bottle. It is a reusable, recyclable, inflatable, plastic bag that protects your precious cargo as well as your suitcase. You can also use it to transport smaller items like olive oils and vinegars because the bag handily conforms to the size and shape of the bottle you place inside.

Now we take one of the bags on each of our trips. It’s easy to pack: It can be stored flat at the bottom of a suitcase without taking much space. One other real advantage is that it allows us to take advantage of cheaper prices in local stores rather than be subject to the higher prices generally found in the duty-free shops of airports.

Packaged in a little box that looks like a suitcase, it’s also a creative holiday gift for friends, family or co-workers. The VinniBag is available for $24.99 on Amazon or can be purchased online directly from Vinnibag.com.
