If the cork doesn't fit too tight, you can just hold the bottle upside down and push it out by hitting the bottle's bottom with your hand.

Worked for a few bottles on the ferries between some greek isles.... :D

Those are excellent tips
:coolgrin:

Moreso that in general wines that have like screwing opening or are in paper box are far less quality than the glass bottled ones

(BTW austrians are the largest by percentage IIRC group of tourists in Greece for years. Feelings are mutual because I really loved Vienna (the serenity/architecture of it really. although it has been some years)

tip #2.
if you want cheap but good greek wine go to a sklavenitis (it's a large supermarket chain, it's pretty much everywhere) and buy Σεργιάνι (Seriani or Sergiani).
2,60 euros only for some excellent fruity wine for that price :D

Q: Will it blend?
A:
Yes it WILL blend, but one must also ask: will it microwave?
