Traditional cork screw wine openers are a thing of the past!

The secret to the Connoisseur wine bottle opener is in the design.Our wine opener is sculpted to feel "right" in your hand. Extra-long handles and finger grips provide additional leverage to make lifting the cork from the bottle significantly easier than a traditional wine cork remover.

Then lift the handle with one smooth motion, instantly removing the cork in seconds! Compact size stores easily in kitchen drawer or apron.

I'm normally a bargain hunter so have gone through a lot of wine openers with little success. Bought this one as a gift and with the buy one, get one at half price promo going at the time, the bargain hunter in me had to get one for myself. I couldn't be happier with it. Far and away the easiest and most durable looking wine opener I've seen among my own cheap ones and more expensive models at others' homes. Is much smaller than the big clunky wine openers as well which takes up far less drawer space. Of course it even looks good enough that you don't need to hide it away in a drawer if you don't want to.

Loved the features demonstrated in the store. However after having the opener for a few months it became difficult to use and finally after a small metal piece fell out (looked like the tooth of a gear), the handle froze. What a disappointment....after paying [$] I didn't expect it to be worse than a dime store wine opener!

Comments about Connoisseur's Compact Wine Opener:

I have tried many different styles of wine opener, including other lever-screw types, but this one is the best by far. Because the tool goes over the neck of the bottle, you are effectively gripping the bottle itself during opening, which gives full control. One push of the lever to engage the cork, and one pull to remove it. The same action releases the removed cork. It works perfectly. I've owned mine for almost two years and it continues to deliver perfect performance.

    • Not For Synthetic Corks

    Best Uses

      Comments about Connoisseur's Compact Wine Opener:

      As more and more under $30 wines use synthetic corking, this opener becomes less and less viable. The screw is so thick that it will not easily penetrate anything but true tree cork--where is works just fine.
      Customer Service was lovely to deal with, offering to first pay for the return (as I had been promised that the unit would indeed work on synthetic stoppers), and then telling me to just keep the opener while they refunded my money! That's how Customer Service SHOULD work.
      So I now have a nice opener for corked wines for free and just need to find one for the cork-less wines.

          Comments about Connoisseur's Compact Wine Opener:

          I got this to replace the wine opener we had previously purchased from Brookstone. It served us well for years. It is amazing how easy and fast this wine open is. I can't see how any other wine open could be better. I just wished that you still carried the brushed copper opener. It looks more expesive and finger prints are not a problem.

            No batteries, no cords or electricity needed. We wanted a manual opener and this one is easy to use and can almost open wine with a little finger with this.

                      Somehow I missed that this wine opener can only be used with cork corks. That's a negative because it limits the wines you choose. Quite frankly, I haven't even used it for the above reason.
