I'll probably buy a max of 4-6.

Pack well and put into checked baggage with sticker "Fragile"

if you are lucky you might be able to get them packaged up in single styorfoam boxes for each bottle of wine, some of the cellar doors offer this service, then in your checked baggage with fragile.

otherwise, wrap in a towel and pray for the best.

Actually, if you're flying domestic you aren't subject to the LAG rules.

All of the wineries have carry packs, 3 pack or 2 x 2 pack.

You can take on board safest way to transport

If you are buying one from each winery you can buy the carry pack alone 

or ask kindly for a freebie.

Enjoy the barossa, wasn't a great harvest this year

Most ship for 10 dollars a carton.

Carry on. It's not worth the risk. 4-6 bottles would fit in 2 small loop handle bags.

If you're like me and get carried away after a day of sampling and buy a case of wine you don't even like, then maybe take advantage of the shipping service as mentioned by drandyc.
