Wine to Europe?

Maybe someone here will know. If not, Bavaria has got to know!

The woman that we are renting an apartment from in Munich is letting us check in very early. She made a comment in an email that maybe I could bring her a little surprise from my home country. So I was thinking a bottle of Finger Lakes wine would be cool as I live in the Finger Lakes region.

I'm assuming I could pack one bottle in my suitcase? If so, do you think it would create any hassle for us? Obviously I'd need to wrap it very, very well.

Well, first off Missy, you can buy wine at any grocery store in Munich (whoops, just realized that it wasn't for yourself and that you don't need an early morning tipple)

I don't recall your carrier, but United expressly forbids wine in checked luggage unless packed in a very specific molded container. Most other airlines are not so concerned about leakage. CarolA has taken wine back from Europe many times....

I brought a bottle back from France in checked luggage. On US Airways, of course it wasn't United... I just wrapped it in clothes.

Well I'll have you know that in the landlord's e-mail there was mention of not only a liquor store next to the apartment but a metzgerei as well! Who could ask for more--wine and meat. Life is Good!!!

We are flying United, so to heck with that. I have to come up with something else. Syracuse China? No, that could be even a bigger mess. LOL.

I forgot United is your carrier, right? Could you put in a good word for us and get us upgraded to four of those pods.
