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 have had to endure this very unfortunate event, and the only way to get it open without breaking the bottle is to push the cork into the bottle. Find something that will fit into the bottle neck, like a butter knife or similar, and keep pushing until it surrenders. Cheers to good health!
You are one hundred percent right! There is no other way to get it out, it must go in! Good Luck!
I tried to get the cork out. Actually took my Swiss Army knife and got the cork to twist. Thought there was hope but then it popped IN the bottle. Instead of 1 glass I had 2...and I'll have to kill the bottle. Poor me! LOL Thanks for replying
Wait 'til you see this...
It's been all over the interwebs!!!
ive been known to screw a long-ish deck screw into the cork,... use a screw driver or power drill,.... then get a friend or helpful family member to pull on the screw with a pair of pliers.
from one red neck who likes her wine,... cheers
I don't drink wine nor alcohol. May I offer you a fine cold glass of orange juice? It's better for your health, I ensure you that.
Use a hypodermic needle and inject air into the bottle by going through the cork.
I have opened a few bottles of wine without a corkscrew by wrecking the cork with a knife and pushing it into the bottle .. I haven't had any wine for a week now ... I hope you succeed !

Would you buy an expensive wine if it had a scew cap bottle?Cork is being replaced but many are refractory to this change. Would you consider a $500 bottle of Mouton Rothshild if it had a screw cap?

When a guest brings wine to your dinner party, should you open it?If you open it and share it could seem as if you wanted to save your own, or keep it and risk seeming snobby - ie the wine not good enough, or again, mean - wine too good and keeping it for self?
