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 '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.
