Recently visited our local hotel for drinks and dinner. As always we buy our wine from their bottleshop, which upon returning to the bar for glasses and ice bucket, we find a $5 corkage fee...which I thought was a lot for wine purchased there.
But on our last visit as there were a few of us we bought 4 bottles, only to be told on return to the bar that it was now $10per bottle.....OMG $40 to open the wine nearly as much as we paid for the wine !!!! So asked to see the owner, but got the Manager who after some discussion from some very annoyed local ladies, who eat and drink there regularly, dropped it $10 for 4 bottles. I feel this an acceptable price for the overheads involved in opening, supply and washing of glasses plus the ice of course.More
