London, Jan. 12: A video put up on YouTube has revealed a simple trick to uncork a wine bottle without the help of a corkscrew.
Mirabeau Wines owner Stephen Cronk’s video shows, which has already clocked up over 140,000 views since it was posted on Tuesday, has him taking off the foil wrapping, placing the wine bottle in his shoe, and then banging it against a wall, the Mirror reported.
After this process is repeated several times, the cork pops up, allowing Cronk to pull it out by hand.
The science behind the process is called cavitation, which uses gas inside the bottle to push out the cork. (ANI)
