How does one open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew & without breaking the bottle?


I cannot believe that an Irish household - namely mine - is without a corkscrew! I have a feeling my father-in-law put it in his back pocket the last time he visited (darn bar owners are corkscrew thieves!) Help! I have a beautiful bottle of wine that needs to breathe you know, for medicinal purposes.

    I started with a long wood screw and nearly fell on my butt when it popped out of the cork. Tried a deck screw but the damage was done. Ended up doing what J Sweet Tooth & mireland19 said and popped the cork in the bottle. Meh :/

    You are one hundred percent right! There is no other way to get it out, it must go in! Good Luck!
