If you look around for wine gifts, you will notice that there are plenty of options. Many of which also include various wine accessories like wine openers. Wine lovers know just how important it is to have a quality wine opener as well as the importance of ease and comfort when using them.
The Winged Corkscrew
This is quite a popular wine opener but it’s not always the best choice. No matter the quality of the cork, the worm part of this opener has a way of shredding the cork instead of gliding through it. There are some good quality options available but it’s important to make sure that you don’t just settle for the cheapest one.
The Wine Key
This is another common and compact option. It includes a foil cutter which is a sharp knife designed for slicing open the file that covers the cork. The worm and lever arm is for removing the cork. You will need additional support when using this opener which means that you will need to place the bottle on a table.
Table Top Openers
If you are running a bar or restaurant, this is a great option because it’s perfect for regular wine opening. If you enjoy wine on a regular basis at home or if you entertain on a regular basis, this could also be the opener for you. It is one of the most expensive options but they really make wine opening extremely easy.
The Lever Corkscrew
This is another somewhat expensive option but very elegant and easy to use. Apart from the higher price tag, they are also larger in size and they take up more space that regular openers. They are perfect for beginners if you are new to removing that cork.
Twist and Pull openers
If you have enough muscle, this opener might be to your liking. You will need to put in some extra effort when pulling out that cork. For this reason, it’s not the top option for wine drinkers.
If you want a truly effortless experience, then an electric opener is for you. Much like an electric can opener, these wine openers do all the work for you. If you suffer from arthritis but you don’t want to miss out on enjoying a glass of your favourite wine, this type of opener could be just what you need!
