How to use a wine opener

Opening a bottle of wine can be quite daunting. Investing in a good wine opener, such as the Pulltex Clickcut or our Chateau Laguiole corkscrews, makes the process of opening a bottle of wine easy and hassle-free. 


  1. Remove the foil: Start by removing the foil or capsule covering the top of the wine bottle. Use the sharp point of the corkscrew's blade or a foil cutter if your corkscrew has one.

  2. Position the corkscrew: Place the tip of the corkscrew in the center of the cork and ensure it's straight and perpendicular to the cork's surface.

  3. Twist the corkscrew: Begin twisting the corkscrew into the cork using a firm, steady motion. Keep twisting until the corkscrew is fully inserted into the cork, leaving only one or two twists of the screw visible.

  4. Lever the cork: Once the corkscrew is fully inserted, use the lever or handle of the corkscrew to slowly and steadily pull the cork out of the bottle. Use gentle pressure and keep the corkscrew straight to prevent the cork from breaking.

  5. Remove the cork: Once the cork is partially out of the bottle, you can either continue to pull it out with the corkscrew or use your hand to gently twist and remove it the rest of the way.

  6. Enjoy your wine: Once the cork is removed, pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!

Remember to practice caution when using a wine opener, especially if you're not familiar with the process. With a bit of practice, you'll become a pro at opening wine bottles with ease.

Alternatively, if you prefer to skip the hassle of using a traditional corkscrew, we also offer electric corkscrews for effortless wine opening. Simply press a button, and let the electric corkscrew do the work for you.
