How to open a bottle of wine – without a corkscrew

We wish we had thought of this but our good friend Stephen Cronk at Mirabeau wines beat us to it, we are huge fans of anyone that makes wine more fun and Stephen and the gang at Mirabeau are brilliant! We think you might like this!!
 
Have you ever been in the situation where you’d like to open a bottle of wine but you can’t get hold of a corkscrew for love nor money?
 
Well I have and I always used to try to force the cork INTO the bottle. Until I picked up this rather nifty trick.
