This very rarely happens. Once they learn of the cork charge of $10 they 99% of the time just buy from the restaurant. It is only for wine. The $10 covers the opening, glasses & insurance. The restaurant can also refuse this service. I understand it happens downtown. I was also told of a new law, that they may take home, open unfinished wine . As long as it is in a bag with a bill of sale from the restaurant. I don't know if that is true or not.

It depends on the wine. If you are talking about a bottle of low to mid-market wine that is $25 at the restaurant but sells for $15 at the local wine shop, the $10 would be a good deterrent. However, if you are talking about a high-end wine like Opus One that in some restaurants sell for over $200 per bottle but sell sell for about $130 at a wine shop, the $10 fee would make perfect sense. Also, BYOB allows people to bring in a bottle of wine that is not on the menu.
