carrying wine in checked luggage

foodfirst | Jul 19, 2002 11:51 PM

A while ago there was a discussion, here or on intl board, abt bringing wine back from Europe. I cannot locate the thread, but I was intrigued by one poster's mention of carrying wine in his/her checked baggage. I'd like to do this on an upcoming trip, at least 12 or so bottles (yes, I want to avoid paying duty) spread over 3 bags. How should I pack the wine to avoid breakage .... or is this just too risky (my bags are soft-sided)?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
