    For my private reception, i have to pay extra for alcohol for 2 hours. it will actually be a lot cheaper if i bring my own bottles of wine to drink during dinner. The resort (Sunset Beach) allows me to do this as long as I pay their "corkage fee" (they will open and serve it during dinner).

     

    Basically, i am hoping to get bottles of wine for around $10 each.  Less would of course be better.  I just want a decent bottle, doesn't have to be too fancy.  For example, I live in California where Yellow Tail and Barefoot wines go for about $6. I would be totally happy with these brands or something similar. I was able to find out that Yellow Tail in Montego Bay is around $20!  this scares me and i am hoping to gather more info on prices and types of wine i can buy before i go.

     

    Does anyone have knowledge or experience with this?  

     

    thanks!

        My fiance and I were in Jamaica earlier this year and stopped by Hi-Lo Market in Montego Bay, which is one of the largest supermarkets. They have tons of alcohol, including wines, rum and beer. Hi-Lo is very close to the Montego airport...about 10 minute drive.
