En with y in a sentence

I can say, "I am bringing two bottles of wine there" I believe like this:
J'y apporte deux bouteilles de vin.

Can I say, "I am bringing two of them there" like this?
J'y en apporte deux.

Or would it be:
J'en y apporte deux.

Or would you use a completely different construction?

thanks, Scott

The rule is y before en, as, e.g., in il y en a deux (there are two of them).
