Wine connoisseurs need not go thirsty thanks to a simple trick, demonstrated by a wine expert on YouTube.

First, you have to remove the ‘capsule’ that covers the top of the bottle.

Then you place the bottom of the glassware inside a shoe, preferably footwear a rubber sole to absorb the shock of the ensuing slam.

Gripping the bottle and shoe, bang the sole against a wall or tree several times until the cork eases out of the bottle. Then all you have to do is pour.

Simple enough right??
