Uncorking the Challenge: How to Experience Wine’s True Taste

Wein lovers face a common challenge: the cork in the wine bottle. However, mastering the right trick turns wine tasting into an unforgettable experience.

To remove the cork: Use an electric corkscrew or a specialized cork puller to extract the cork cleanly and quickly from the bottle’s neck.

Beware of the cork’s functions: While opening the bottle is the first step, dealing with its aftermath is essential – the cork protects the wine from oxygen and light. To preserve its taste, drink the wine as soon as possible after opening.

An unforgettable memory: Renowned wine expert Pierre Dupont shares his experience of his first glass of Bordeaux – "I can still recall vividly the exquisite finesse, complexity, and ripeness that made me savor it with a melancholic smile."

Scientists offer solutions: Vacuvin systems and argon-covered bottle stoppers are examples of methods to minimize wine’s contact with air.
