Some years ago when I was whitewater kayaking it involved a lot of camping.
Red wine in boxes was very convenient. Lighter weight and no bottle breakage when driving back roads.
Saved remembering a cork screw.
We soon learned not to paddle with a hangover.
Nowadays, the closest I get to whitewater is when pouring skim milk on the cereal.

with your background I would expect you to own a Campagnolo corkscrew.

|jc96||upon further reflection, no soaking of my taters however they do grill quickly when wrapped in aluminum foil...correlation?? I'm further guessing that frizzy wines such as prosecco or bubbly open quite easily with just a shake. Lotsa time here obviously. Robvolz out in Seattle should chime in here. I think he's a wine store guy. ciao, chris|

|Spitfire||Chris, a determining factor is how well they were initially soaked.|

|jc96||it'd be of interest to measure the coefficient of a cork. Along with the thermal efficiency of a potato as noted under the aluminum radiators thread. I gathered from the thermal ratings, that cooking a potato on an aluminum radiator would take longer than on one say made of silver. ciao chris|

Interesting technique to use the wine itself as a hammer.
The video demo used an I-assume-chilled, white wine with a plastic cork, which may have a lower coefficient of friction that a real-cork, corked bottle of room temperature red.

|Spitfire||Buy screw cap wine...depending on your tolerance to headaches.|

|jc96||Take a cordless drill and insert a large wood screw into the cork. Latch on to the head of the screw with vise grips or similar and pull. ciao, jc|

There is a better way.
Take a regular dress shoe, presumably with leather soles and heel.
Put the bottom of the wine in where your foot would go, sticking up as though it was your leg.
Holding them together with the wine now horizontal, bump the heel of the shoe against the wall, or some firm vertical surface that won't suffer from the bumping.
Using the right pressure, the cork will work its way out enough to grab and pull the rest of the way.
