 Has anyone shipped home a case of wine from South America and if so, how did that work? Was it an actual savings? Did it arrive home intact :) We're from Canada so imagine our rules/taxes are slightly different than those from the USA but any info one has to share is great. Going on "Discover South America: Chile & Argentina in Jan 2014 - do you even go to wineries where you can purchase a case of wine. Thanks so much

That was one of my favorite trips. We did go to a winery and some in the group bought wine but I don't know if they had it shipped home.

My local Fresh Market and wine shop sells SA wine at good prices so it wasn't worthwhile for me to buy a case.

Enjoy the trip, it's great.
