Here is a clever way to use the foil on the top of a wine bottle as a cork holder. We learned this cork trick in a wine bar in Verona.
The Veronese Wine Cork Trick
Wine Drinking in Verona
I first saw this method at a wine bar in Verona, and not just any old wine bar, it was at Antica Bottega del Vino (literally “old wine bar”). This place is a hidden gem just off the main walking path through the city. It’s one of those places that if you love Italian wine and enjoy traveling, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll end up there at some point in your life (especially if you go to Vinitaly).
