wine law

if i break the cork that means we have to finish the bottle, right? 


  1. 100% right!

    It's the law in France!

    Until recently (alright, 1968) you could be guillotined for not finishing the bottle if you break the cork!

    Most of my friends break the cork as a matter of principle!

    It's just one of those things that they forget to tell you in those Emigrate to France books - a shame really as finishing the bottle really does improve the quality of life over here!

    All the best


  2. no! glad to hear i've been a law-abiding citizen so far. all corks will be ritually broken from here on out.

  3. Yes! It's the law. And I think the penalty for breaking that law is a trip to the guillotine :-)
