Ratings & Reviews
Great idea with sturdy construction but the concept needs some work. Unbroken case came back as checked luggage from Europe thru several airports with several rebookings and reroutings in the baggage areas. That being said I might have had a little different idea if I had to do all the handling myself---the carry handles work fine but the wheels really need to be on all 4 corners to be of much value as just having them on 2 corners makes things real cumbersome. The inside is basically a serviceable cardboard wine case with a styrofoam liner that holds standard sized 750 ml bottles or possibly 1 liter bottles of a comparable height. Don't plan on returning with a case of elegant long necked bottles of a Grand Cru from the Alsace as I think those bottles will be too tall. No problem with airline size or weight issues on the 750 ml bottles I checked and I think there is enough leeway to add 2 more wheels with no problem. I'd have been glad to have paid a bit more for that option.
We were able to transport a mixed case of wine home to Ohio from California with no trouble. All was intact. Found that the case would flip to its bottom if I wasn't careful and pulled up to much when pulling the wine check on its wheels. There was no damage done when this occurred. It was just a bit unnerving. Simple light design allows for stowing some small (think airline sized) bottles in the spaces in the styrofoam insert. So far after one trip the price seems fair and the item worked as described.
Just Received It

Bought this case because I saw it being used by my friend It is what I need to move my wine. Based on her usage and the appearance I rated this item 4 Maybe a 5 after my first usage.
Love the bag
by Vivian F
First time I ordered anything from IWA. It was easy to order and it arrived on time. Perfect condition. Love the bag - we recently went to Virginia to visit vineyards - brought home several bottles of wine in our luggage and although they arrived safe we were really concerned. This bag is awesome. Wish we had had it in Napa and Virginia. We don't have to hassle with bubble wrap or using our clothes to wrap around bottles. and it makes it so easy to tote through an airport. . .or anywhere for that matter. We plan to use it on a road trip this summer.
Great wine traveler
We searched to locate a good wine traveler at a good price. We purchased the carrier with the cardboard and Styrofoam inserts. We were looking to use for air travel, this was perfect for our use.

This really helps get your wine to where you want to drink it. Glad someone added the padding and the wheels!
Works just as advertised!
We took our new bright red wine tote on its maiden voyage when we visited Spain last week. It worked like a champ. It is very light when empty, which is very helpful since we were concerned about the weight when full. Fortunately a full case of wine weighs less than the commercial flight limitation for checked luggage. The wine was very secure, and we were relieved to open the tote when we got home from our trip.
A couple of comments: the bright red certainly attracts attention, especially with the quite prominent logo on the top. We were a bit concerned that we would be picked on by airport or customs agents, but we really had no problems other than curiosity. The zipper could be a bit sturdier, and we will see how it holds up. We intend to put it to good use: leaving for California in 2 weeks!

We live in AK and our sons live in California, thus we have used this bag several times and all our wine/beer has made it safely home. We like it so much that we recently bought a second bag so one is with us and one is with our boys - that way we get wine more often :) I didn't give the bag 5 stars simply because the wheels/pulling strap are not good. The bag is not easy for me to pull because the wheel are, well pretty lousy. The bag is even more difficult for my 6 foot husband and sons to pull as the strap is very short. BUT as I said not a single bottle has been damaged.
Really useful carrier! We have taken this on a Caribbean Cruise and several trips from Wine Country and also International. In fact, we have just given this as Christmas Gifts for our European Relatives who delighted in being able to take wine back to their home.
Red Wine Tote
by SD Chard DrinkerSouthern
I purchased the complete set. The tote is light and sturdy. The insert is a must. I would have preferred a hard extendable handle instead of the strap for rolling. The strap was a little awkward to use.
Also I would like to see this same unit offered in a six bottle size.
Great bag for traveling
We ordered this bag for a cross country trip. It is a convenient way to transport wine, although I would like to see another design that does not use a box to store the wine in.
All in all a good purchase.
Wine Tote Bag
Customer service was helpful to make sure I ordered everything I needed for the carry on tote bag,
The Perfect Case-of-Wine Transport
This is the perfect luggage for wine. Light, easy to handle, rolls perfect and - best of all - can accommodate a full case of wine with great protection and no worries about making the maximum check-baggage weight limit. The color is easy to see coming off the baggage return and the construction seems sturdy and of nice quality.
We love it we are going to Utah for christmas and we are bring 12 bottle of wine.
Love, Love, love this suitcase! Can’t wait for my Dad and Step-Mom to open it on Christmas! Luggage was received exactly as described. Order processed and shipped quickly with no problems! Will definitely buy from IWA again!
by Ron Kirby
The wine carrier received was just as advertised. It was shipped and received one day earlier than expected. I am very satisfied with our purchase and the service of IWA.
Wine Check Product Review
by Sally -
We love this! We ravel to Mexico often and it is hard to find good wines there (we are Napa fans) We saw someone with this in the airport on our last trip and had to have it. We bought it with the foam in it. I will let you know how wonderful it works in a few weeks when we travel again.
A wine vacation must have
We have 3 of these now! Great price. Arrived within a week, as promised. Durable and easy to travel with.

This bag works great! Used for transatlantic flight and had no problems checking the bag or with the bottles being damaged. Every bottle was unblemished
Love Love this wine luggage!
by SheilaD -
We love this wine luggage. We've had one for a couple of years but definitely needed another one for our travels. We have checked it numerous times full of wine and other bottles. Absolutely no issues and nothing broken. I have also given 2 as gifts to friends because they kept borrowing mine :)
Stressless tool for wine business people
by Thomas Meunier
Importer of wine in the US, I found this bag ideal for my business trip. Easy to attach to your carry on for your long walk between airports. Stressless when you know your samples will be with you and safe. I highly recommend it !

Fast shipping, item as described and can’t wait to use. One thing is a longer handle but nice bad.
Wine Check Luggage, Red
by Michelle Cummings -
The Red Wine Luggage Set arrived quickly, within a week of ordering.
The set is as light as promised and pulls well on its wheels, you'll just need to walk straight or turn in a slow ark to keep the luggage on it's two wheels. My only disapointment was I didn't get the two free wineskin bags mentioned in the email IWA sent to me.
Excellent travel idea
by Lex -
Just used two of these to check cases of wine while flying. They worked perfectly. Fit a couple of sizes of shipper boxes, and were much easier to handle than plain boxes. Great idea!
Check 12 bottles of wine!
by Debra -
I just received the bag and have not used it yet but love the red color and the idea of being able to check 12 bottles when flying. I agree with a previous reviewer that it would be awesome in a 6 bottle size so it could be carried on when empty. I am not happy about paying for an extra bag when it is empty as it is too bulky with the box and packing material to carry on the plane.
