Another way to uncork wine

I’m a bit of a fan of eco-friendly packaging, so at first sight I really liked this classy-looking glass wine-bottle stopper, which my brother-in-law, Buzz, introduced to me a few weeks ago in a bottle of Danie de Wet Chardonnay.

When I began researching it I was surprised to find that it’s been around since 2006. But, interestingly, nowhere can I unearth anything about its environmental impact. One thing I can tell you – it’s not readily reusable, as it doesn’t fit all wine bottles.

Can anyone throw any light on its carbon footprint?
