Wednesday October 19, 2022 Author: Adrian Categories:




 CorkageFee, the only mobile application that centralizes corkage fees from local restaurants, today announced they have achieved the milestone of having reached over 10,000 corkage fees across North America’s top restaurants. CorkageFee is where restaurant-goers share and discover corkage fees for local spots, and it is the #1 app for BYOB/Wine in the Apple Store as well as Rated the Top Wine App by Wine Enthusiast. They have also recently launched a comprehensive directory of wineries, wine clubs, wine and liquor stores, as well as businesses selling wine products making it even easier for wine aficionados to connect with local purveyors of the grape. 

“It’s been amazing to see our community grow and cross the 10,000 fee milestones.” Says Adrian Esquivel, Founder, CorkageFee, “Our users love the app because of the value they receive in discovering new restaurants where they can bring in a bottle of wine and sharing that information with the community.”  

The United States is the largest wine consuming country in the world with 40% of the legal drinking population, 240 million Americans, enjoying wine on a regular basis. Many of these consumers are looking to bring their own preferred vintage when they dine out. CorkageFee makes it easy to find and discern establishments that fit their needs according to location, corkage fee, or budget.

CorkageFee has released data on the industry including:

  • Top 5 most popular areas where diners bring their own bottle of wine:  New York, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles
  • Average corkage fee in New York $30
  • Average corkage fee in Miami $21
  • Average corkage fee in Chicago $20 
  • Average corkage fee in San Francisco $23
