Wine Gadget 101

What is this thing? 

I wish I could figure out how to make this photo rotate and float in space on the page.  What is it? It’s a champagne stopper. It allows me to finish half a bottle of sparkling wine and still have bubbles the next morning for a Mimosa. The stoppers cost about $10, last forever, and work like a charm. Any good kitchen store will have them.

Of course if you are French then you have no use for this – the French saying goes something like this, “A Magnum (double bottle) is the perfect size bottle of Champagne for a man to share with his wife – if his wife isn’t drinking“. Well for the rest of the world, who wasn’t weaned on Champagne,  a champagne stopper is an essential wine gadget.
