Cardboard wine shipping boxes are a light weight, economical solution to shipping wine bottles. They are cheap to buy to start with, plus you will save on freight charges. They are perfect for the business owner trying to go green as they are 100% recyclable. There are many types available.

The last we checked, True Fabrications produces a good line of cardboard wine boxes. Its most popular model is the three bottle wine shipper (#1182). Its high quality cardboard and reliable design make it approved for shipping via United Parcel Service or Fedex.
This wine shipping box comes with paper pulp bottle protectors to help cushion wine bottles while in transit to their destinations so as to help ensure they will not shatter before they arrive. To ship, slide the paper pulp insert into the box first. Next, lay wine bottles down flat, facing each other in an alternating manner into into the slots provided. The design of these slots will grip the bottled along the sides. The True Fabrications 3 Bottle Wine Shipper sells for $5.99 per unit.
