How to Saber a Champagne Bottle

Sabering a Champagne Bottle

In celebration of our family winery’s 50th Anniversary, we have not only released a commemorative Sparkling Chenin Blanc, but also a one-of-kind, wood handle saber to bring the drama to any gathering! Our Tasting Room Associate and resident Saber Expert Paige Pedroza walks us through the process of using a champagne saber, from the preparation of your bottle to the hand motion necessary for a safe, clean cut. Cheers!

Please attempt sabering at your own discretion and with practice and caution — pointed away from friends, family and onlookers, and in an open area.
