Let’s play the guessing game: what the heck is the item shown above? Despite looking like some sort of futuristic alien egg, it serves a useful purpose when it comes to oenology. If that word is unfamiliar to you, oenology is “the science and study of all aspects of wine and winemaking” (-wikipedia). Looky there, you just learned something, and now you probably have a good idea of the item’s purpose. Yes? No? If not, the pictures below will give it away.
It’s a corkscrew, the L’Artiste Corkscrew, if you care to know its proper name. L’Atelier du Vin’s elegant corkscrew allows you to uncork bottles of wine quickly and easily thanks to its smooth and simple action. It could certainly make a nice gift for a special occasion, perhaps keep it in mind for future events?
