How to Use the Port Tongs :
Heat the tongs on the stove or with a propane torch. Clasp the tongs around the neck of your old port bottle and turn it around, gently, without disturbing the wine. Once the glass is evenly heated, remove the tongs and pass an ice cube around the glass until you will hear a glass crack. Lift off the top of the neck with a cloth and carefully decant the wine.
