    Does anyone have any ideas about getting good wine at resorts? I know the house wine is usually pretty bad, where is a good place to get wine offsite to bring to the reception?

      There is a Costco in Cancun that should have wine. The Costcos in Puebla and Mexico City have wine and liquor anyway. I wonder if the resorts would have an issue with bringing alcohol from off site...

        I went to La Europea in Cancun. They have a great choice AND they will refund unused bottles. Be careful not to chill the white wine you want to return... it's very easy to find.

        LA EUROPEA

        The resorts that will allow you to bring your bottles (you have to check before hand) will charge a corking fee. You have to check the fee, it's usually different for wine, liquor and champagne. Even with the fee it was still much less expensive than through the hotel.

        I also checked the Walmart and the little winery in front of the Walmart in Playa del Carmen, but preferred the choice at La Europea.

          There is a Sam's club in Playa. I tend to stick with reds and whites from Chile or Argentina. Casa Lapostalle is one of my favorites.

          Hi girls,

           

          We got married on August 6th and we were really worried about the wine and champagne issue. 

          At our resort the costs of these were 3 and 4 times more expensive than normal costs in Spain, where I am from. 

          We did not want to pay that but we certainly knew we did not want to go with the awful wine house! Our resort did not charge a corking fee, but if the hotel had it, we would have go on with the idea of having good wine.

           

           

          Plus, there was other bride that got married at the same resort several months before me, and she had the same issue. She decided to buy the wine at a supermarket and she had bad luck as she said it was awful.

           

          I found thourgh this site a wedding planner based at Playa del Carmen, Yazmin de la Mora. She was great and we were really happy to find her!! She provided us a long list of wine and (French) champagne. We booked the bottles and we received them at the resort. We decided Yazmin gave them to us the same day of our meeting with our resort planner, so our planner had the bottles. 

           

          We took a look at all the bottles to see they were right, and they were perfect. 

           

          It was super easy to work with her and she answered me promptly. She is a very good professional and I really advice her. 

           

          I repeat, for us having good wine and French champagne was really important and everything was perfect at our reception.
