House wine or corkage??

House wine or corkage??

Postby grogmg » Tue May 04, 2010 11:23 am

Just wondering if you are using the hotel's house wine or if you are getting your own wine and paying corkage?

our hotel package includes 1/2 bottle of wine pp so thats what we're going with. we'll might buy a round for the toast drinks as well but that will be depending on funds at the time

corkage is a fee that the venue charge you per bottle of wine/champagne if you are bringing in your own rather than using house wine. i think corkage in our hotel is €8 per bottle if i remember correctly. a lot of people bargain them down on this though

Yeh, you can bargin with them on corkage, they usually ahve it high to deter ppl, was just wondering as im going to look into it, depending on what wine we get with the package or if it is going to cost extra. Also found a lovely champagne, had it with our meal at valentines, but forgot to ask the restaraunt what it was called, guna find out and see if the venue could get it in for us, or else I'd source it myself. Im not a champagne drinker and I usually find it either too sharp or too bubbly, but this one was perfect!
