An indispensable accessory for wine lovers and sommeliers, the sommelier corkscrew is lightweight and fits in most pockets. It’s the classic way to open a bottle in one simple and elegant movement. The secret? Insert the screw into the center of the cork and turn clockwise. Once the last spiral is just above the top of the cork, fold the lever down towards the neck of the bottle and set the notch against the lip of the bottle. All that’s left to do now is pull the handle up gently to remove the cork from the bottle. Most sommelier corkscrews feature two-steps, but Peugeot’s one-step is easier and faster to use. Less intimidating, the one-step corkscrew’s patented system was created to provide optimal practicality and better performance. The compact size and patented handle helps open any type of bottle in one continuous and graceful movement.
Lever corkscrews are a gift-giving staple. From weddings to anniversaries and holidays, they impress all wine enthusiasts. Easy to use and constructed to last, they give you the confidence you need to open a bottle without breaking the cork. First grip the bottle at the top, with the lever up and as you lower the lever, the worm turns inside the cork. Lift the lever to extract the cork. That’s it!
Another option for amateur sommeliers are continuous turn corkscrews. Requiring even less dexterity, these corkscrews were designed for maximum efficiency and minimal effort. Functioning in an intuitive manner, all you need to do is turn these ergonomic corkscrews until the cork is released from the bottle. What could be simpler?
