Marketing Japan: & How to Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew!

Today, for your pleasure I want to show you a very cool short video on "How to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew." It really works! Try this at a party and impress your friends! I did and their jaws dropped!  

Before that, though, a word from my friends who turned me onto this cool video. If you don't live in japan, just go ahead and scroll to the bottom to see the video! 

If you are in Japan and you like wine. Then is for you! What is is Japan's online wine superstore. I always order my wine from

The reason we always order from and never buy at any of the other local discount wine shops is because, at the wine shops, you never know what you are getting. I hate buying a bottle of wine, then taking it home and having a sip and realizing that I made a mistake. With, this never happens! 

2009 Cono Sur Varietal Riesling

Delicious wines at great prices! has an easy-to-use point grading system that allows me to know what I am getting. I just merely input the price I want to spend per bottle and then the page gives me information - from professional sommeliers - so that I can make an intelligent choice and get what I want...

Quite different from your local corner liquor store that has a part-timer there who doesn't have a clue as to anything excepting that Happoshu is cheaper than beer. Or, at Kakuyasu, where the signs just tell you where the wines are from and if they are sweet or tart... (Hello! I need a little more information that that when I am spending a few thousand hard earned yen!)
2007 Pepperwood Grove, Chardonnay 

This is my wife's favorite wine! On sale now at ¥1,390! Can't be beat!

My wife and I always order wine by the case from and stock up. This way, whenever we have quick emergencies when we have to visit someone suddenly, we just go to the wine cellar (er, our basement) and grab a bottle of wine with the confidence of knowing that we have a great bottle to give! also give you free shipping! Now, without further ado...for your enjoyment, presents "How to Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew!" 

This is in French, but you don't need to speak the language to understand... 

If you are in Japan, save time, effort and money! Order wine from and tell them "Mike Rogers sent me!"
