Hacker 007 revealed a step-by-step guide to get to the wine without any fuss.

To start off, remove the bottle’s cover to expose the cork in question.

Then, use your lighter and put the flame on the neck of the bottle near to the cork in order to heat up the air underneath so it will expand.

Make sure you rotate the bottle of wine as you go so the area is fully warmed.

Alternatively, you can use a wooden spoon.
