This is the coolest way to open an old bottle of wine that has a degraded cork:

Excellent! I wonder if 2-Bands work the best at this with their firmer backbone, or does this require the delicate touch of 3-Bands! Biggrin

Great video.
I know a lot of people don't like the idea of screw caps for wine instead of cork but it won't be corked with a screw cap.

I never thought I'd come around to screw tops but I am. As you point out, Chris, there is no wine being corked problem, the bottle is much easier to open, and, when a whole bottle isn't finished, it is easier to reseal. It does not change the flavor of the wine and I am not someone who thinks that a good bottle of wine must have a cork. I used to think of it in terms of tradition and while that is a factor in my morning shave it is not in my enjoyment of a glass of red. Winky

Yeah when I first say it, my first thought was cheap but that is not the case at all. Here in NZ most wine makers have made the switch, I guess the industry moving as one here has help people adjust quicker.

A friend of mine had a old bottle of Johnny Walker with a cork. Needless to say the cork had broken down.
I wonder when the whisky industry made the change to twist caps and how was it received by the drinkers of the time.
