1. Not nearly as dramatic as pulling out a knife, stabbing through the cork , twisting and pulling out the cork. Works great,but requires a thin blade that will pass through the bottle neck.
    I guess winedrinkers don't carry a knife anymore………

  2. Oh geez. Now I feel the urge to try this. (Here, hold my beer and wa…. Uh, wait a minute….)

    Interesting, but a lousy idea in a wine with any sediment. Sure you could use one of those sediment catchers (kinda like a funnel except with a sealed spout and small drain holes about 5-10mm above the bottom) afterwards, but if you don't have a corkscrew what are the chances you'll have a filter?

  3. And now that most wine bottles in Australia don't use corks anymore, they tell me this? 🙂
    I'm gonna get me a bottle of imported stuff to try this!
    (well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
