I am using the pulltap corkscrew I bought in 2001. You’ll lose this corkscrew before you can break it. These are the perfect wine bottle opener. Whether is it for a new wine with a diam or plastic cork, or it is for your old bottle of port from pre World War 2. This corkscrew is the tool for the job.
Sure, you can buy much cheaper corkscrews. But none of them can hold a candle to how well these pulltaps last. The screw itself is straight, fine and stays that way.
For ease of removing old and stiff corks, there is a two-step system. It reduces your chance of breaking these troublesome corks inside the neck of the bottle. Assuming you are careful, of course.
There are available in multiple colours to make your wine opening even more fun.
The Wine Depository
I, Phil, have been running The Wine Depository since 2011. The Wine Depository exists to make sure you are drinking the good wines. You can browse and pick what is interesting to you. Or you can make contact with me. I’ll make sure you get what you want, to your palate, to your budget and to your door.
Wine is the result you get from fermented grape juice. There is proof of wine production dating back 8000 years ago. Fashions, innovations and many other factors have influenced the way wine has evolved over the years.
The wine grape is impressive. It contains everything you need to make grape wine except for the yeast, which lives on the outside of the skins.
Human inputs can influence the final product, including the viticulture (growing) choices. And the winemaker can shape the wine to a point too.
The best wines of the world often refer to terroir. Terroir is a French term that refers to all the climatic, geological and topographical influences on a specific piece of land. And it is true that neighbouring vineyards, grown identically, can taste noticeably different.
