Is there any outer container (a frame or box, perhaps) into which an open bottle of non-mevushal wine can be placed that will shield the bottle in such a way that, if a non-Jew (or heretic) casually touches the outer container (but does not pour the wine), the wine remains halachically acceptable?

  • If so, I'd be very wary. An open bottle of wine in a box is liable to spill, as people won't know it's open and won't handle it with due care.
