How To: Opening a Champagne bottle with a sabre (video)

WASHINGTON, August 3, 2012 – Sabering Champagne goes back to the days of Napoleon! In order to saber your champagne correctly, you need to make sure it’s very cold. The second step is to remove the foil and metal cage from the outside.

You’ll notice there is a seam on the outside of the champagne bottle where the seam meets the bottle. You’ll use your saber or butter knife to hit that spot - the spot where the seam meets the bottle.

Once you hit that spot, the cork will pop right out. Then you can celebrate by drinking your bottle of champagne.

Laurie began her wine career in Manhattan where she studied with the American Sommelier Association to earn her certificate in Viticulture and Vinification. She has since earned an Advanced Certificate with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET), completed her first step towards certification with the Court of Master Sommeliers and has trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley. Laurie’s specialty is creating unique corporate keynotes, team building events and group tasting seminars where she can deliver on her mission to demystify wine one glass at a time.
