How to open a bottle of wine – without a corkscrew

Blog How To Video

Have you ever been in the situation where you’d like to open a bottle of wine but you can’t get hold of a corkscrew for love nor money?

Well I have and I always used to try to force the cork INTO the bottle. Until I picked up this rather nifty trick.

CAUTION: THIS MAN IS A WINE TRADE ‘PROFESSIONAL’ AND HAS OPENED MORE BOTTLES OF WINE THAN HIS WIFE WOULD CARE TO REMEMBER. PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRYING THIS METHOD YOURSELF AS IT MAY LEAD TO WALL AND/OR PERSONAL DAMAGE. I.E. THE BOTTLE COULD SHATTER OR THE WALL COULD FALL DOWN.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
