Wine Hack: How to Get a Cork Out of a Wine Bottle

Over the course of his career as Sommelier at the famed Windows on the World and now as our Wine Director, Josh has opened thousands (millions?) of wine bottles. As a result he has experienced every snafu that can happen in opening wine. Maybe this one has happened to you? You twist the corkscrew in ever so carefully and then gah! The cork falls in. While touching the cork won’t actually harm the quality of your wine, it can be a real pain to try and pour with a cork stuck in a wine bottle. In this 1-minute video, Josh shows us an easy trick (wine hack) to solve the problem. Tune in!
