What will you pay for corkage?


  • Steve - 9 years ago

    I find the general corkage fees of $15, $20 and up are absolutely ridiculous, not to mention shortsighted on the part of the restaurant, as it gives little incentive to BYOW. Wine bought in BC is already over-priced as it is. To add $20 on top of a mediocre $15 bottle is plain stupid! A $5 dollar fee is reasonable and would not only be less of a burden on the restauranteur in terms of the costs of stocking bottles, it would encourage more of the populace to actually set foot in their establishment!

    According to the rules this is true. The wine must have been purchased in BC. Very silly and a rule that will be broken.

    i do not purchase fine wine from the lCB
    Lousy selection and prices are way too high
    am i right to understand that wines purchased outside
    of Canada are not allowed to be brought into a local restaurant?
    I did bring a very nice 96 Anne Gros Clos de Vougeot into an unnamed
    establishment, and there was no problem.
    Does anyone know the proper procedure?
