TIPS – Want to take purchased wine home? No problem ~ most wineries can ship to most states for a minimal fee. Your state not one of them? Again, no problem ~ purchase a shipping box from one of the wineries and build your collection from 6-12 bottles and airlines will take this as a piece of checked luggage at an extra bag fee.
