Corkage Fees

Foodguy | Jan 4, 2003 12:08 PM

A number of Seattle area restaurants are charging large corkage fees ($30-40) per bottle. Those of us that collect nice wines and don't wish to pay the 200% and greater mark up for the restaurant wines are being adversely affected. A reasonable corkage fee should equal the price of a single glass of wine ($10 -15). I think that oenophiles should boycott these establishments that charge more than $20 corkage and patronize those that are reasonable.
