Around here, since PA only sells liquor and wine through its State Stores, if you went in and bought more than a few bottles they would grab an empty cardboard case out of the back room to put them in so they don't clank or break. Those bags are good ideas though. I wonder who came up with that...
They've been around for a while in Sainsbury's and Waitrose - PVC coated fabric and you have to buy them but worth it as they are reusable. Useful for non-alcoholic bottles too.

True story, my 26 year old daughter was struggling to open a bottle of wine recently only to find out that it was a screwcap. She drilled right through the metal cap. She takes her wine very seriously.
Been there : done that!

We are getting some quite respectable wines in screw top bottles over here at the moment. There was a shortage of good quality cork a few years back which lead to that work-of-the-devil the plastic cork. I think the screw tops are an improvement on those.

Come on Steve, tell the truth. That's what you carry them to the table in
