My "Wine Buzz" column on Wednesday gave a rundown of corkage deals around the Sacramento area, and asked readers to chime in with more deals.
Before we get to those, let's make a quick clarification for the corkage deal at 58 Degrees & Holding Co. (1217 18th St., Sacramento; 916-442-5858). Corkage is waived on Sundays, but only for bottles purchased at 58 Degrees' wine shop (a $15 bargain). All outside bottles will still set you back $25 for corkage.
Now, on to more deals. We still haven't found anywhere locally besides Bandera and Iron Steaks that offers free corkage every day. But, we've heard from some local restaurants that want to spread the word about their corkage deals and other wine specials:
Piatti Ristorante and Bar (571 Pavilions Lane, Sacramento; 916-649-8885) waives corkage if you also purchase a bottle from their wine list. Wednesdays also feature half-price deals on select wines.
Evan's Kitchen (855 57th St., Sacramento; 916-452-3896) charges $10 corkage (which is about half the price of the typical corkage) with a $50 maximum.
Brick House Restaurant (9027 Elk Grove Blvd., Elk Grove; 916-714-0840) offers $10 corkage daily, and no limit to the amount of bottles.
