The weird craft tricks that will keep your champagne fresh

The champagne flowed over the holidays ! But how do you keep an open bottle of champagne ? Michael McLaren shares this unusual technique with Good Tucker.

He grabs some film paper, doubles it and wraps it around the top of the champagne bottle, fixing it with an elastic band. “The next day the champagne was still full of bubbles… it was as if it was brand new.”

Melissa has another experience: “I just used a children’s balloon, an unused balloon, that explodes. And it’s perfect for two or three days!”

Champagne Bureau Australia Director John Noble and Sofitel Sydney Champagne Bar Director Sutari Martinez also join Michael for a champagne masterclass.


To each his own technique !


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
