WineHug Review: Reusable and Secure Way to Travel with Wine

WineHug traveling case for wine

Price and Where to Buy: The WineHug is $22 on Amazon.

How the WineHug Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. The WineHug is not the cheapest option (that would be the $5 to $10 Wineskin), but it’s sturdy, reusable, attractive, and adaptable. The WineHug easily protected a bottle of wine that was dropped from a height of four feet. In addition to adding a Therma-rest-like layer of padding around wine bottles, it could be repurposed to transport similarly sized breakables.
  • Value: 8/10. This reusable protector offers solid protection for wine.
  • Durability: 9/10. Strong Velcro, solid seams, and a sturdy inflation valve means the WineHug can be used over and over again.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. Among travel wine holders, the WineHug stands out as one of the coolest looking. And it has the practical features to be useful as well.

Final Verdict: This is a sturdy and attractive reusable wine-transportation sleeve that offers enough protection that you could confidently check a suitcase and expect your wine to arrive unscathed.
