There is no way to open a bottle of Champagne that’s more fun than sabering, the act of taking a large blade (or a chef’s knife) and popping off the cork with one smooth motion. As it turns out, it’s so easy to do that anyone can pull it off. Watch our video with the  step-by-step sabering tutorial and… May the force be with you!

You only need a knife and an ice cold sparkling wine (Champagne, German Sekt, Crémant, Cava, Prosecco, and other amazing sparkling wines that won’t break your budget…).



Step by Step Guide to Saber Champagne

  1. Chill Champagne to reduce pressure – it must be ice cold
  2. Completely remove Champagne foil
  3. Reposition cage carefully to first lip
  4. Choose Your saber –we used a long knife
  5. Hold Champagne at 45° angle
  6. Slide saber in a smooth motion along the seam of bottle


Safety Warning Be careful. Don’t poke your eye out attempting to saber Champagne.

Thanks for checking us out and stay tuned to Winosaur for another fun filled scenario arriving the New Year!

Love & peace,
Léa, Maxime, Sandy, Karin
