So you can't find a corkscrew and you are stuck with an unopened bottle of wine in your hand? Impress your guests and open a bottle of wine with your shoe; a Mirabeau Wine's expert shows you how to manage without your bartender's friend.
If you are in a situation where you need to open a bottle of wine and it doesn't have a screw top and you can't find your bottle opener and pushing the cork into the bottle doesn't seem like an option, what do you do? In a handy video Mirabeau Wine show wine lovers how to manage without a bartender's friend and open a bottle with a cork just using a wall and a shoe.
if you do have problems using this unique wine bottle opening method, experts at Mirabeau Wine explain why:
"Some kinds of corks are more difficult to remove than others. Especially synthetic corks or very new corks."
The experts continue to explain that you can tell the difference between a synthetic cork and an authentic cork by looking at the top of the cork and to tell the age of the cork — look at which vintage/year the wine is from.
Where does the cork come from? Cork tree bark.
