Wine Doggy Bag is the original designer and manufacturer of tamper-evident, one-time use bags that allow patrons to remove an unfinished bottle of wine from a restaurant.  These bags meet or exceed the requirements of all states that have enacted “take home wine” laws also called wine-to-go, cork and carry, wine doggy bag or merlot to go laws..  Wine Doggy Bags are available in 750ml and 1.5L sizes and can be customized with your logo. The use of our Wine Doggy Bag encourages responsible drinking and, at the same time, increases sales of bottled wine.  You will also turn your tables faster if the patron is aware of the “take home wine” option. We will custom print your Wine Doggy Bags with your logo or any other information you request to increase awareness of your brand, your hospitality group or cross-market your sister restaurants.   

All states now allow you the pleasure of finishing your wine at home. Many require, and others recommend, that the bottles be taken from the restaurant in sealed and tamper-evident wine to go bags so as not to be in violation of open container laws.

From our 15 years of selling Wine Doggy Bags, we know that these laws will encourage responsible drinking and, at the same time, lead to an increase in the sale of bottled wines.  That’s because patrons won’t feel they must finish a bottle of wine or “waste” its contents.

BUT IT’S UP TO YOU, the server, maitre’d, manager or owner to make your guests aware of these laws and for that reason, provides marketing tips and materials for your use.

If you are in a Wine Doggy Bag state then you must follow the state law when letting your guest take home their bottle of wine.  Sending them home with a take out bag or shopping bag, even if stapled at the top is not in compliance with the law.  The bag must be clear, tamper-evident and one-time use.  Our special adhesive makes it virtually impossible to open the bag without destroying it, creating a one-time use bag.  For the price of one of our bags it just isn’t worth the risk.  Please be smart!  Comply with the law so everyone stays safe.
