CLOSED - Review & Giveaway: VinniBag Reusable, Inflatable Wine Travel Bag

OK, so many of you may know me as having an affinity for good wines...especially Champagne!  I have been faced with the fact that while traveling, my favorite wines are usually hard to come by and are too breakable to pack in suitcases! 

Me and Mom at Roederer Estate Tasting Room, Anderson Valley, California


Occasionally, I find a great bottle while traveling and am too scared to bring it back, with fears of it shattering in transit!

PROBLEM SOLVED


Yes!!! The problem is solved thanks to a little miracle known as Vinnibag!  "VinniBag is a reusable travel bag with inflatable air chambers that protect and insulate wine bottles, other liquids, and fragile items. It’s designed to provide superior protection against impact and leakage, is easy to use, and stores flat, rolled or folded when not in use."

Vinnibag also doubles as a safe-hold for cosmetics, olive oils, glassware, and just about anything imagineable!  To make this product even better, Vinnibag ECO-FRIENDLY, REUSABLE, and MADE IN THE USA!  In fact, Vinnibag offers its own recycling program, and will turn your vinnibag into a garden hose when you're finished with it.  Please check out Vinnibag's Unique and Concious Recycling Program here!


And despite it's unique design, Vinnibag is very user-friendly:



I deciced I had to give it a try for myself using a bottle of Roederer Estate Extra Dry Sparkling Wine:


The Vinnibag with my bottle of Roederer sealed safely inside was packed snugly into my checked luggage and was stowed beneath the plane for a flight to sunny Orlando, Florida... Disney World to be exact!  And guess what....


My favorite Bubbley Arrived, SAFE AND SOUND at my favorite place...all thanks to Vinnibag!!!

Amanda! This is great...I love your blog, and I love this vinnibag. I get lots of questions from Disney Cruise Line guests trying to figure out the best way to pack their favorite wine to go from plane to ship to stateroom. This is wonderful. Go, Disney Go-To Girl! :)

Andi! So tickled that you like the blog! The Vinnibag is such an innovative idea and you're right, would be perfect for DCL guests! I'm hopping aboard my first "cruise with Mickey", April 23rd for 7 days to the Eastern Carribean! Ecstatic! (And I'll be packing my Vinnibag!)

Obviously, I follow your blog :-) and I've found VinniBag on FB and liked them as well. My hubby and I will be celebrating our anniversary at WDW in May and this would be perfect to bring a bottle of bubbly to the resort with us... and then even better to bring home a great bottle of wine :-) Thanks for the chance to win!

I once had the misfortune of opening my suitcase to find my wine purchase broken & my clothes stained - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this vinnibag! We are going on the Disney Cruise in Feb & visiting a few ports of call that I am sure I will purchase some form of wine! Thanks for sharing this great idea : )
