|Welcome to the Go Montreal Living Bring your own wine section. Here you will find a vast selection of Montreal bring your own wine restaurants. Bring your own wine concept was introduced in the 1950’s for just that, bringing your own wine to a gathering. BYOW means "Bring Your Own Wine" and tells you a restaurant allows you to bring your own wine to their restaurant. Most Montréal restaurants charge you a corkage fee on the wine you bring. The corkage fee goes toward covering the cost of glasses, decanters, and of course the profit restaurant make on the wine. Many places also refer to BYOB as 'Bring Your Own Bottle'.
