Sure, you can bring in wine. Just be sure to declare it. However, you can buy excellent New Zealand, Australian and South African wines in raro at the CITC liquor store, next to the airport. Just a suggestion, explore new wines. Have fun. Chuck

If you're flying to RAR via LAX, you won't be able to take wine in your carryon through the United States under the new security rules.

Could put it in your checked luggage if packed well, but if your bag sits on the tarmac in high temps waiting to be loaded in the hold that likely will damage the wine.

There is an inbound duty free shop at Raro open for all flights. Reasonable selection. But as others have said a great selection at the Bond Store and the CITC supermarket in Avarua.
