Consider the scenario…
It’s a sunny Friday afternoon, you’ve just finished work and you head out to sit in the park with friends and some well-deserved wine. You find the perfect spot under the perfect tree, lay out your mat, shades on, legs stretched out, jokes are being made about the earlier staff meeting; a generally jovial atmosphere. And then you reach for the bottles.
“Who brought the cork screw?”
Blank faces stare back at eachother. Hearts drop. The jovial atmosphere has turned to stone.
Aaaand cut! Enter super-frenchy guy who knows how to open a bottle of wine using just his shoe! (a pretty stylish shoe at that).
Now fear not my little wino snowflakes, the video may be in French but the technique is very self-explanatory. And a little French lesson never hurt anyone. Watch and learn…
This is the most valuable piece of information us winos will ever be given so pay close attention fellow winos. I cannot tell you how many times that awful forgotten cork screw dilemma has arisen for me already this Spring (at the first hint of good weather, us Parisians tend to get a good head start on al fresco drinking along the banks of the Seine). And if you’re in the park, use a tree trunk to substitute a wall.
P.S. Here’s a cute little tip for recycling all those used corks …
