    don't try to take the wax off!

    two easy ways i learned the hard way:

    if it has a resealable cork, cut around the bottom of the lip with a butter knife.

    if it requires a corkscrew, just put the corkscrew through the wax.

      Put the bottle in the fridge - or freezer if the proof is high enough.
