Oregon Wine Flies Free on Alaska Airlines

The easiest and cheapest way to get wine home is to pack it up, and fly it home. This way your wine arrives when you do, and you do not have to pay shipping fees or sales tax, or worry about the hot weather during the summer months. You are allowed to check wine as a suitcase on any airline for their checked bag fees (which is still cheaper than shipping fees and sales tax). Alaska Airline has it worked out with Oregon Wine that you do not have to pay a checked bag fee when you check a box of wine. You can read the details below. We sell the correct shipping boxes that you can pack up and use as a checked bag. Many of our customers, and all of us here at the winery fly wine this way all the time, and we have never had any issues with it. We have 3, 6 and 12 bottle boxes you can use for only $3, $6, or $12.

 

It’s easy to take a taste of Oregon wine country home with you if you’re an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan member.

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members may check one case of wine (6 or 12 bottles) for free on your Alaska Airlines flight from Eugene, Medford, Portland, Redmond or Walla Walla, WA. To sweeten the deal, we invite you to enjoy a complimentary tasting when you show your in-bound boarding pass (paper or digital) and proof of your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan membership at any of our more than 300 participating wineries.
