The most important secret to corking a bottle of wine is to make sure that the corkscrew enters the cork at a straight angle. If it doesn't, it becomes easier for the cork to chip and thereby decreasing the value of your wine.

Why do people smell the corks from wine bottles?

The cork can sometimes relay whether the wine is not good. If you smell something bitter or maybe a scent of vinegar, your wine may not be good.

How to prolong the lifetime of an open wine bottle?

You should minimize the exposure to air by corking the bottle tightly. If there is a little bit of wine left try transferring it into a smaller bottle. You should also keep it away from light and heat and put it in the refrigerator.

I received a rack that holds the wine bottles upside down, does this effect the wine?

No, it is Ok keeping the wine this way. One ofthe most important things about keeping wine is to make sure the wine insidethe bottle is reaching the cork from inside keeping it moist, and that'sobviously happens when the bottle is maintained upside down.

Waring wine opener wont pull out cork

We learned that NONE of these electric wine openers like the new "plastic" corks. Take a needle nosed plyers and hold the cork tightly(as it sits inside the housing) and gently push the button to release the cork. it should work.

How do I open a bottle of wine without a wine opener?

You can push the cork into the bottle and extract it by using a cloth napkin inserted
into the bottle. It pinches against the cork and allows it to be pulled back out.
There may be a video on youtube about this.

A cork is stuck in my Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener.. It spins and spins but will not move up or down. How can I fix this?

We had the same problem, and we took the thing apart, unscrewed the cork from the corkscrew and put it back together. You have to make sure you line everything up properly inside, though. There are contact points that need to be lined up on the inside.
