Wine Shipping Redux ---> A different issue entirely

jbl1953 | Aug 22, 201810:17 AM     5

So you would think I know the answer to this, after 40+ years in the wine trade, but laws change, court cases are decided, and I frankly don't have a freakin' clue!

Most question of this ilk are about how to ship wines I bought here to my home over there, and usually that answer falls in one of two categories: 1) have the winery/retailer ship it as they have the proper licenses, or 2) carry it home with you as luggage. This is NOT my issue.

I shall be celebrating my 65th birthday in a few months in New Orleans, with friends coming from all over the US. (Well, alright: CA, FL, NY, OR, TX, for now; more to come perhaps.) I want to open up some wines for dinner (in a friend's restaurant) that are all from the last century (let's say 1970-1999) and come from my cellar.

1) Since the wines are of significant age, they have thrown sediment, and so carrying the wine on the plane isn't the best option as the wines may go into bottle shock and/or stir up all if the sediment.

2) Since I live in California, I cannot claim to be shipping them "home," nor can I have a winery or retailer ship them for me.
