A term used in some restaurants and bars to describe the possibility of consuming wine bottles that you have brought with you. This is usually practiced at larger, closed events. For this purpose, a so-called corkage fee (in Austria also stubble money) is charged per consumed bottle or pulled cork, the amount of which varies greatly (usually one third of the value). In New Zealand and Australia there are special restaurants called BYO (Bring Your Own) where this is common practice. See also drinking culture and wine enjoyment.
