How to bring your favourite wines into restaurants

If you'd like to pair some fabulous wines with your favourite restaurant food, you may want to consider a "BYO" option at these restaurants.

If you'd like to pair some fabulous wines with your favourite restaurant food, you may want to look past the drink menu and its indigestion-inducing markups.

Many Ontario restaurants unobtrusively offer a “BYO” (Bring your own) option, where you can buy your own wine and bring it in, as long as you pay a “corkage fee” between $15 to $45.

Luckily, for the price conscious, there are a select few eateries that generously waive the corkage fee as well. In the article linked below, Carolyn Hammond lists some of them:

- Globe Bistro at 124th Danforth Ave, Toronto: Corkage fees are waived on Wednesdays

- Henry VIII Ale House, 3078 Bloor St W, Toronto: There are no corkage fees when you make an order of their famed Bison burger and fries

- Paese Ristorante, 3827 Bathurst St, North York: No corkage fees any day of the week except Saturdays
