Got it!! A simple explanation why Australians love Stelvins and the French keep their corks….!!!

A small humorous addition to our debate of Stelvins versus corks! It’s very simple really… Australia our houses don’t always have solid walls and when the weather is warm, they wear thongs!! Opening a bottle in this manner would not work and therefore the Stelvin was invented?

Friends, never ever ever ever open a bottle of Paradise Rescued wine (or Ch. Petrus 2009 or..) like this!!

    For our British readers, please substitute the words 'Flip Flops' for 'Thongs' and if you come from North America, I think 'Beach Sandals' might be a better translation!!

    Can we propose a deal? If you were able to perhaps find the Yquem – it needn't be an 1847, even a 1989 would be nice – I will do my best to get a suitable opener??? And I promise it won't be a shoe!!
