How to Open Sparkling Wine


There are a few tips for safely opening sparkling wine bottles to minimise spillage. Rather than using a sword to brush the cork as in the art of Sabrage, it is best to loosen the wire cage around the cork. Then, holding the bottle at an angle, gently twist the bottle to ease out the cork slowly. This method prevents the champagne from foaming excessively and spraying everywhere in an uncontrolled manner. Proper technique ensures an enjoyable experience of opening and serving sparkling wine.
