Wine Cork won't Unscrew?

I got a bottle of a tasty pinot grigio when I went out to the grocery earlier this week. I'll admit I started attempting to open it before remembering to remove the foil, but I've screwed up and done that before w/ no problematic effects. The cork kinda crumbled w/ where the corkscrew went b/c it's all soft and I can't get the corkscrew to go in at all, it just crumbles up the cork in that area. I know it's not the wine because it's a respected area winery. It could very well be the grocery store because the lesser Kroger in town. But I really just want to get the darn cork out. I've tried the banging it on something to see if the cork moves tactic, which didn't work. I've read you can just push the cork back in, but mine won't do that. Any help?

Your cork is not crumbling because it's soft, it's crumbling because it's dry.

This is because the shop has stored it upright, instead of on its side.

Best option is to clear off all the crumbs of cork and then push the cork in.

You may need to decant the wine into another container to remove all the bits of cork but the wine will still taste fine.

PS: Despite what Luke says a dry cork does NOT mean wine is spoiled ... Corked wine has nothing to do with having cork in it, it means that the cork had a fungal infection when the bottle was sealed, and that this has tainted the wine .... This can happen with a damp cork as well as a dry one
