Cheapest place for wine? Help

Postby fitzy » Mon Jan 03, 2005 6:16 pm

Heh there,
My hotel has the cheek to charge 12.70 for corkage and their house wines begin at 22.00, needless to say we are going to go for corkage but need to keep costs down. The wedding will be around 150 guests so how many bottles of each. Also corkage for champagne is 25.00. help help. Can go to england as groom from liverpool. Please help.

Hiya,
We went to Cherbourg for ours and got really great value. We only had to pay €5 corkage so were able to spend more on the wines themselves, but there are a variety of lovely wines for around the £5 mark e.g oddins.com have the australian Penfolds rawsons retreat at 2 for £10 in white and 20% off 6+ bottles on the red (really lovely wine) loads of fab french availible also wine and beer world even give you free return sailings from teh UK to france if you spend £500.
HTH,
Fran

Lots of people in the Republic seem to be going North to newry to purchase wine so that may be worth a try

You can have a look at prices for UK supermarkets on

also try oddbins, and the supermarkets are all doing deals at the moment.
Superquinn has wolf blass from 8.95 per bottle and you get one free with 12. I am going to be like a dypso by the end of the weekend - have bought 5 different bottles to try out!!

im paying €4 per bottle for corkage in a five star hotel, for 140 guests, or half bottle of wine per guest was €7.50. i would try haggle them down, they prob just want you to buy more drink on the premises.
i hate wine so had to buy a few bottle for family to try. there is a red mcguigann shiraz i got for €8.50 per bottle,. on sale now for €7 per bottle. and then mcguiganns chardonnay , same price. both delicious and i hate wine. in tescos. and i think you get a 5% discount on every six bottles as well
