There are two parts of this show: the disaster, and the cover up. Not sure if we really expected the first part to turn out successfully. In a nutshell, we show you how NOT to open a wine bottle. There’s a way to do it with a shoe and a solid wall. We chose a boot and a tree, and the combo didn’t work well. Jake Westerfeld from Cameron Hughes Wine did the best demonstration I’ve seen of this bottle-opening approach.
The second half is The Som sharing his favorite wine book. He swears by it. He swears a lot in general, but he really endorses The Wine Bible by Karen MacNeil.
