Screw This: The Corkage Fee Debate

February 25, 2015


Cork Fee

I had one of those evenings recently. Again.

Our hotel’s “friendly” restaurant refused (quite rudely, actually) my girlfriend and I the option (paid or unpaid) of bringing two bottles from our personal stash to dinner.

The city was Frankfurt.

The time – Sunday evening.

The restaurant – empty.

The bottles – Giorgio Scarzello Langhe Nebbiolo 1997 (read the tasting note here) and Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 1988.
