Open champagne bottle safely / The Wine Feed in Raleigh - A State of Sight #99

A champagne cork can fly at 50 miles per hour if it is not controlled properly. This could cause serious eye injury or even blindness. Watch this special episode of A State of Sight with Isaac Porter, MD from The Wine Feed.

Wine adviser Brianna Needle explains the best way to remove a cork from a bottle of sparkling wine. By controlling the cork the entire time, there is no chance for an injury. Be sure to chill the bottle adequately and never shake the bottle.
