Corkscrews are great for opening wine, but an inventive sommelier can get the job done without one. Here, Hristo Zisovski (beverage director for the Altamarea Group and one of F&W's 2014 Sommeliers of the Year) dons a GoPro camera and uses the following tools to pop (or bypass) the cork:

1. A shoe.
2. A wood screw, a screwdriver and pliers.
3. A CO2 blaster
4. Port tongs.
5. An ah-so.
6. Coravin.
7. A saber.
