Hi I think ive more or less finished haggling with my hotel on things but the sparkling wine corkage is still annoying me as it seems really high @10 euro per bottle? Esp. when i hear other 4 stars in same town allowing people bring in brandy for drinks reception corkage FREE and onlu charging 2 euro per bottle of wine? What are you girls paying - im hoping this might calm me down a tad???? ;o)

Most local hotels around me are FOC - other are €6-7 per bottle.

Ours is €7.00 for sparkling wine. We haven't tried haggling yet as not sure we will be doing a toast drink but if we do then I will try and haggle down.

We paid €10 a bottle. It was worth it though as we got our wine very cheaply and it worked out cheaper than going for the venue's wines and bubbly. I think DH worked out we saved about €300 bringing our own wine, so it worked well for us.
