Just came across Apparently they are the only company on the East Coast that carries a complete line of approved packaging from UPS and FedEx.

It's funny to me how some people are skiddish about shipping wine and others don't care. I've been doing it for years and it's never been a big deal. I can't tell you how many times I've gone into the UPS store, set a few bottles on the counter and had the UPS worker help me package them up....

I have yet to ship wine. However, I know of several people who have experienced positive shipping transactions via UPS. How about it CORKTRADERS share your experience with this novice. THANKS!

I'd check your source Mary -- UPS won't let you ship wine unless you're in the biz....(or unless there's some high school kid behind the counter @ the UPS store). But if you take your wine in and it's already boxed up, there none the wiser....and if they do ask, it's vinegar :)

Wow where have I been. I just heard UPS was taking over DHL shipping under a 10 year contract. Still doesn't help the state to state shipping issues. CRAP!

Has anyone seen the winehug? This thing is awesome, it's a sleeve that protects a bottle when your traveling. Here is a cool demo video if your interested.
