Wine goes through quite a journey during its life. From the vineyard to your dinner table, it is crafted and cared for by many hands, and what you pour in to your wineglass is the result of hard work, dedication, and wine education.

It’s these practices that, since 1926, have inspired L’Atelier du Vin to create their boutique of wine-complementing products. From opening to pouring to preserving and storing, L’Atelier du Vin can look after a bottle of wine from the cellar to the glass, with design and functionality to enhance the pleasure of wine-drinking.

L’atelier Du Vin’s Twin Blade Corkscrew has a bit of a humorous history… As legend goes, these “bilame” were the favourite tool of waiters in French bistros, who put the ingenious corkscrew’s design to a slightly difference use. As this style of corkscrew removes a wine’s cork without piercing or crumbling it, waiters could take a few sips from bistro bottles and replace the cork without anyone noticing – which meant free drinks!

You might not use your Twin Blade Corkscrew in the same way at home, but there’s no denying the usefulness of this clever little corkscrew.

Twin Blade Corkscrew features:
  • Designed and made in France.
  • Corkscrew made from metal.
  • Includes a sheathe to safely store the corkscrew's blades.
  • To use, first insert the tip of the longer blade and then the tip of the shorter blade; rock the two blades down one after the other with short movements; when the blades are completely driven in, remove the cork by pulling and turning at the same time; voila! Your cork will be removed entirely intact!

Dimensions: 8 x 10cm.
