It's a foregone conclusion. Arrange the bottom of the bottle so that it lies where your heel should be. Now comes the exciting part. Strike a solid surface, such as a wall, with your shoe-attached wine bottle. Eventually, the cork will burst out. At this point, you can remove your shoe and pour the wine into a glass for drinking later.
This is one of those inventions that sounds like it would be fun to try out but probably not very useful. However, since it's a unique invention, we thought we'd include it on our list.
6 Ways to Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew
5 Ways to Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew
You can open a bottle of wine using a screw, screwdriver, and hammer if you can find a toolbox. Insert the screw into the cork, then screw it in deeper with the screwdriver. Then, take your hammer and use the end (not the head) to remove both the screw and the cork out of the bottle. Be careful not to break the glass of the bottle!
The easiest way to open a bottle of wine is with a corkscrew. First, insert the corkscrew into the cork of the bottle of wine. Then, pull the lever back and forth to twist the corkscrew, which will force the cork out of the top of the bottle.
A screwdriver is a good tool to have around for opening bottles of wine and other bottles that are only available in countries that use screws instead of corks. The process is exactly the same as opening a bottle with a corkscrew but instead of pulling the lever, you will be going up and down on the screwdriver to turn it.
Wine bottles are made from glass and if you try to open them with a metal tool like a screwdriver or a knife, you will cut yourself. If you happen to cut yourself while trying to open a bottle of wine, immediately get ice water to stop the pain and clean the wound before continuing with the rest of the task.
Hold the bottle's base against your body and lay your palm firmly over the cork. Begin carefully twisting the bottle's base. Keep a firm grip on the cork and slowly peel it apart as it loosens. Hold on firmly to prevent it from slipping out of your grasp. When the cork is completely free, lift it up and out of the bottle.
Now that the cork is out, hold the bottle by the neck and twist it back and forth until all of the wine has been released. Let the bottle sit like this for at least 30 minutes after opening to allow all of the oxygen to be absorbed into the wine.
Once this period is over, start pouring immediately because soon the wine will begin to deteriorate.
The best wines are made from young vines and should be drunk within 5 years of production. Older wines can become sour or have other problems if they are not consumed promptly after opening.
For most bottles of wine, the easiest way to open them is with a corkscrew. But if you need to open a bottle of wine in a hurry, without using your hands, there are several tools that can help.
One option is to use a winery tool called a decanter. These items are sold together by some wineries as part delivery service.
Insert the wire into the space between the cork and the wine bottle. The wire should be parallel to the border of the bottle (the hook should not yet be facing in). Push the wire down beside the cork until the little hook is beneath the cork. You'll need to press it down at least 2 inches to do this. Then pull up on the wire to remove the cork and begin drinking delicious wine.
This is one of those projects that looks difficult but isn't. If you have any questions about how it's done, just ask me!
