How to: Open A Wine Bottle With A Key

created at: 03/13/2016 Every man should own a corkscrew, but admitedly there some times in life when everything is going right in terms of wine acquisition and there’s just no corkscrew to be had. Never fear. As long as you’ve got a key on your person, you’ll be ok…   Just watch the video below from Dave Hax as he shows you how to insert a key into the cork at an angle and then apply a little torque to work it out of the bottle. So far it looks like the trick only works for sure on synthetic corks, but if you know that going in, you may be able to work it to your advantage in a wine emergency.
