Corkage Policy –

          The East End Wines Corkage Policy is to charge $7 to open a 750ml bottle of wine on the premises. We will charge less for smaller bottles ($3.50 for 375ml, $1.75 for a 187ml split). As this is based on our true retail pricing, we feel this is one of the best deals in town. The corkage goes to cover the consulting, fees, extra insurance, building of the patio, hiring of staff, breakage and “shrink” of glassware, ice buckets, and ice that we provide to people who are using the corkage fee to drink wine on our premises, the entirety of which are covered by our Texas Winery License. This makes it a true On Premise / Off Premise license, so that you are able to legally buy anything in the store and drink it here, and take anything that you do not finish with you. It also precludes the consumption of a few things that are not available to be purchased from East End Wines, as beer and liquor would not be covered by the license that we have, and thus cannot be consumed anywhere on our premises.

          As a quick example, using one of our least expensive bottles of wine, that sees our standard markup – Famega Vinho Verde 2012 – 6.97, +7 for corkage, with 1.15 tax = $15.12 for 4 6 oz. glasses of wine. This is an extreme instance, where the corkage is more than the retail price of the wine. That being said, the glass price comes to $3.78, where the least I would expect to find it elsewhere, by the glass, would be $4.75, and probably not for a 6 oz pour, but a five ounce pour. (Restaurant in Minneapolis – 6 gl, 22 btl, Morrisville, Vermont – 6 gl, 24 btl, San Francisco – 9gl).

          As the retail price of the wine that you pay corkage for goes up, the deal gets better, and we feel that it is very fair at the rate that we have it set currently. Please come and avail yourselves of this great deal and try the wines in the shop, at the shop, with food from Three Little Pigs, on the delightful patio.
