How To Wrap Wine Glasses For Moving

There's no doubt that wine glasses are an essential treasure in every wine enthusiast's collection. They’re not just pieces of glassware; they’re cherished memories of unforgettable soirées, weekend wine tastings, and cozy dinners with loved ones. So, when it's time to move, you want to ensure that your precious wine glasses are packed correctly and securely. In this Black Wine Club guide, we’ll walk you through the steps of how to wrap wine glasses for moving with ease and utmost safety!

1. Gather your packing materials

To wrap wine glasses securely and effectively, you'll need the right materials. Going the extra mile with quality packing supplies can make all the difference in ensuring your glasses arrive at their destination without breaking. To pack your wine glasses, you'll need:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing paper or tissue paper
  • Strong cardboard boxes, preferably with dividers
  • Packing tape
  • Scissors
  • A permanent marker

2. Prepare your work area

Before you start wrapping your wine glasses, designate a clean, flat surface to work on. Make sure you have enough space to move around comfortably and spread out your packing materials. If your table is too small, consider laying a large towel or blanket on the floor and working there.

    3. Wrap the wine glass stem

    Start with the most fragile part of the glass – the stem. Take a generous sheet of bubble wrap and wrap it around the stem from the base to below the bowl. Ensure that there's enough padding to protect it from external pressure. Secure the bubble wrap with packing tape, ensuring not to tape the wine glass directly.

    4. Wrap the bowl of the wine glass

    Place a sheet of packing paper or tissue paper on your flat surface. Place the wine glass on its side at one corner of the paper, with the stem pointing diagonally across the sheet. Roll the glass across the paper, wrapping the bowl completely. Make sure you fold the edges of the paper so that the top and bottom of the glass are also covered.

    5. Add an extra layer with bubble wrap

    Now that your wine glass is wrapped in paper, it's time to add a layer of bubble wrap for extra protection. Refer to step 3 for wrapping the stem, but this time wrap the entire wine glass. Once the glass is fully wrapped, secure it with packing tape.

    6. Pack the wine glasses into a box

    With dividers:

    Using a cardboard box with dividers will provide the most security for your wine glasses. Place each wrapped glass into a divided section. If there's additional space around the wine glass, add crumpled packing paper or extra bubble wrap to fill the gaps and prevent moving during transit.

    Without dividers:

    If you don’t have access to a box with dividers, you can still protect your wine glasses. Layer the bottom of the box with crumpled packing paper. Place the heaviest wine glasses on the bottom layer and continue stacking them, placing lighter glasses on top. Be sure to add crumpled packing paper between each layer and around the glasses to prevent them from touching each other.

    7. Seal and label the box

    Once all your wine glasses are securely packed, seal the box with heavy-duty packing tape. Label the box with a permanent marker, indicating its contents as "Fragile: Wine Glasses" along with the destination room (e.g., kitchen or dining room). You can also include an arrow to indicate which side should face up.
