I'm sure this has been covered, but I couldn't find it....
If going on vacation, can wine be checked in my luggage? Is there any problem with the pressure popping the cork out - or with the cold air in the cargo hold?

Another thing is that wine in your checked luggage will almost invariably mean that the TSA folks will have to open it to examine it. I regularly fly thru some of the airports where the checked luggage screening is done right at the counter (Providence for example) and every time there has been wine packed in the luggage, it has been opened and inspected. The screener told me that they have to because they are concerned that they might have liquid explosives. Which explains the swabbing down of each of the bottles. At least the ones I've watched have been very careful to make sure the bottles are repacked in the middle of the suitcase and well padded with clothes.
