Why did they confiscate my wine?

Fares from Washington DC:

    A: I can’t think of any reason why you couldn’t carry wine in your checked luggage. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Perhaps the Delta check in agents just needed some wine for dinner that night. I would contact Delta’s customer service department by Delta Customer Care, PO Box 20980, Atlanta, GA 30320-2980, or call 404-715-1402. Explain what happened, and ask for a voucher good for future travel on the airline. I’d be surprised if they don’t grant you one.
