How to Package Wine for Shipping

When you package a bottle of wine for shipping, there’s only one goal on your mind and it’s making sure your wine arrives at its destination safely. Although this might sound like an easy task to accomplish, there are a wide range of things that can go wrong throughout the process.

Extreme weather conditions, a careless delivery driver, and a bumpy ride to the destination are just some of the obstacles you’ll face. That’s why it’s highly important that you minimize the risk as much as possible, that way you can ship your wine in comfort and with complete confidence. 

So, do you know how to package wine for shipping?

One of the best ways to ship your wine bottles is with one of our six-bottle wine shipping box kits. It comes equipped with six inner corrugated boxes and one outer corrugated box. Each bottle gets its own box and you can fit six boxes inside the larger box for a snug and tight fit.

Both the inner and outer boxes are made of corrugated cardboard, which means they’re much more protective than your typical cardboard box. Corrugated cardboard is made of three layers -- a smooth outer layer, a smooth inner layer, and a rippled layer that sits in-between the two.

This gives your wine a good amount of protection when in transit. Not only do you get the three layers of corrugated cardboard surrounding each bottle, but you also have another three layers of corrugated cardboard surrounding each box -- that’s double the durability and protection.
