Do you like food and wine travel, or even just bringing home a bottle of wine from a trip? A few weeks ago in my weekly newsletter, I recommended buying bottle protectors, which can keep your wine—and olive oil, etc.—from breaking and making a huge mess in your checked bag. The ones above, from TravelSmith.com, sell at a price of $25 for two. They have padded sleeves and PVC lining to prevent breakage, and if a bottle ever does break inside, the contents are sealed with two leak-stopping zip closures and a Velcro strip making it nearly impossible for them to leak out.
Don’t make the mistake one of my friends did (a broken bottle of wine ruined her clothes). There’s no need to risk it!
