I grew up with crew caps on wine jugs. First time I saw a cork in a wine bottle I musta been something like 21. Got it out with a screwdriver and woodscrew and a pair of pliers. When I got to Korea with the army an old Sergeant Major showed me how to whack the bottom of wine bottles to get hydrostatic pressure to pop out the cork -- he'd learned it in France in WW2. I've lost the touch over the years, but it's a great trick if you know how to do it.
