Wine Videos: Don’t Do This At Home, Kids

Last week we compared wine video commercials from some of the major Champagne brands (in case you missed that post, you can find it here). Today I’m not asking you to rate the videos. Just watch and learn… or not (one of the videos is definitely giving me an urge to actually try it at home). In these videos you will see how professionals deal (meaning: open) with champagne bottles. This method  of opening the champagne bottle is  called sabering, and if you never heard of it before, just watch the videos (you can also read about some history of champagne sabering here).

First one is showing champagne bottles being opened in a rapid succession to achieve a world record:

The second video shows how sabering can be done with just a regular glass instead of a sword. While it looks easy and effortless in this video, make no mistake – it does require good amount of skill.

If you will be brave and try it at home, let me know how you will make out! Cheers!

    Here was my first attempt at it. I’ve gotten much better since then!
