Or perhaps you were ‘stuck’ as we recently were at winemaker dinner, unable to find a waiter or sommelier, and an industrious pal (Dagan Ministero of Terroir) whipped off his shoe, put the base of the bottle in it, and started slamming it against a brick wall until the cork slid out. The Daily Sip has a demonstration from an intern of this very technique, and we bring it to you today.
