They say that wine flies when you are having fun…or was that time? We do not seem to remember at this point, but we guess it goes both ways. Time surely flies by when you gather around with good friends and catch up with your lives, when you spend it on an exotic beach or when you finally lay back in a fancy restaurant to have dinner after a dreamy day of sightseeing over your favorite city. Imagine how much better would any of these scenarios get if you would have by your side your best friend, always ready to cheer you up, the one that makes no fuss but helps you when you are incredibly thirsty. Are you wondering what are we talking about or you already guessed who the main character is?
We don’t want to leave you hanging anymore: of course we are talking about your favorite wine. It is there after a hard day in the office, it stays proud at all parties, it saves you whenever you have no idea what gift is more appropriate for your manager. Wherever you go, it will go – all you have to do is find a suitable way of transportation and take it along.
It is not by chance that most countries have their very own traditional type of wine. Travelling goes hand in hand with enjoying a sip of ancient legacy, so you must definitely try a Pinot Noir or a Chardonnay if you visit France and enjoy a fine Barbaresco or a classic Chianti while admiring the great ruins of Ancient Rome. Mark your visit to marvelous Barcelona with a cold glass of Bodegas Roda and you will definitely remember what a great wine o’clock you had whenever you will feel that fine taste again. Do you recall how in Marcel Proust’s famous novel “In search of the lost time” the main character had a deja-vu moment while tasting a sweet madeleine? Now that is the great feeling you ought to experience: a simple wine sip should transport you back in time at your happy place, when the wine was fine and the sun set over another fabulous day of you journey. All you have to do is bring back home that iconic wine with you.
We all know that travelling with bottles might prove just as challenging as travelling with small children. You have to find a suitable place for them in your luggage, they make great noise if not packed properly and can ultimately get damaged and make a lot of mess. That is a certain path to ruining the ending of a great vacation. Since this event does not make our short list of holiday fun, the wine industry came up with a great idea, a creative way for carrying wine safe and sound from one destination to another, whether you are travelling by plane, driving a car, cruising along or sending it as a gift: the wine bottle protector sleeve. Ingenious yet simple in design, this contraption is not new, but still works and does exactly what it promises: takes good care of your wine bottle by dressing it up for the occasion and preventing it from ruining its appearance throughout the journey.
WHY USE WINE BOTTLE PROTECTOR SLEEVES
If you are still reluctant to whether you would need this device or not, just take a look at the great advantages it brings about:
• Protects bottles against breaking: a glass bottle is a delicate object and while it can successfully carry an impressive quantity of wine in great conditions, it needs protection too. Just think about how harsh your luggage is manipulated at the airport or how much pressure it endures if you are driving on a sinuous road. Don’t you think that a little bit of extra safety will make a huge difference between an untouched bottle safely reaching its destination and a broken one, which snapped under severe physical stress? Do you think that you would get that promotion you worked so hard for if your manager receives a damaged bottle of wine as a gift on his birthday? Not anymore! Be smart and take the right decision.
• Protecting the objects around from getting stained or destroyed: we believe this phrase says it all. A bottle of red wine broken inside your luggage equals disaster. Sorry, but we don’t think that you will be able to save your favorite white blouse or use your make-up anymore.
• Protecting wine labels from getting scuffed or marked up in the suitcase: of course we all like wearing designer clothes and having a famous brand luggage, but we would rather have the Gucci or Burberry logo on our outfits and suitcases, not the Pinot Noir symbol imprinted in stains. The wine bottle sleeve will certainly protect against spills and keep your beloved items safe and sound.

One of our absolute favorite wine bottle travel protector is the Jet Bag set of six-sampler pack. Made in USA, it proudly states its purpose even from the very start. Despite looking as a plain and simple plastic bag, its design is actually quite ingenious. The logo conveys the idea of protection by displaying a plane carefully and gently surrounding a bottle.

If you feel the logo does not state the obvious, on the lower side of the bag you can find instructions on how to use it properly in order to make sure that your wine travels in perfect conditions.
