New Carry-On Converts to Checked Wine Case

SANDIA PARK, N.M., Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VinGardeValise® (, well known for its line of checked luggage that keeps wine bottles safe while traveling, today introduced its new Piccolo model, the carry-on sized little brother to its larger Grande and Petite rolling suitcases — ideally suited for bringing back souvenirs from weekend winery trips. Inside the high-end case, foam inserts hold up to five normal-sized bottles on one side, leaving the other open for clothes and other personal belongings.

The Piccolo boasts the same sturdy, hard-sided shell as VinGardeValise’s other offerings. Ribbed design, outer burst straps and reinforced, asymmetrical, top-of-the-line Hinomoto wheels are on the outside. Inside are top covers and safety straps to ensure merlots, chardonnays, cabernets, pinot noirs and more make it back home in one piece. But, the secret sauce is the patented foam inserts.

Made of a super-dense foam, one of the pair of removable inserts cradles two bottles while the second handles three, giving the Piccolo packing versatility not found anywhere else. Use it for clothes only as a carry-on, and then simply check it after you’ve added your wine purchases.

The Piccolo measures 9.5 inches by 16 inches by 22.8 inches, and weighs 7.8 pounds when empty. A TSA-compliant lock is flush-mounted and all VGV® suitcases come with a HomingPIN lost luggage accessory. The Piccolo retails for $249 and comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
