Safely Serve (and Conserve!) Champagne

You know it when you here it, a LOUD pop followed by spraying, fizzing, spurtling sparkling wine. You try not to think how much you spent as a good percentage of the bubbles and liquid literally blast into the atmosphere. You say nothing as you take your first sip and note that your Champagne is flat. Oh well, you say to yourself. At least no one was hit by the cork! Don’t let this happen to you again. There is a tried and true method for serving Champagne that guarantees not only that your Champagne will stay in the bottle until you pour but also that it remain delightfully sparkling. More importantly the safety of you and your guests will also be ensured. Grab a case of the cheapest bubbly you can find (ex: Trader Joe’s sometimes carries a Cava from Spain at $4.99)…and practice while you watch this video!

Proper Still Wine Service

If you want to impress your friends with proper table-side service, this is it: the proper way to serve and open a bottle of wine. When dining out you should always be shown the label before the bottle is open…even if the service is less formal (sans the white napkin).

Safely Saber Champagne with Master Sommelier David Glancy

Not that I encourage this kind of thing…Frankly, I’d rather watch! But if you insist, you might as well learn the technique used by Master Sommeliers and members of the Court of Master Sommeliers (who may or may not be Masters yet – that’s another story).
