The best corkscrew ever invented! Sound familiar? How many times in your life have you had to fight with a partially intact cork in a superb bottle of wine? Wine stewards make it look deceptively easy, but we are indebted to a host of thirsty inventors for the foresight and creativity that aid the rest of us in a similar dilemma, with a stuck cork and excellent vintage. It is truly amazing how some of these designs have withstood the test—or should we say “taste”—of time. We certainly owe them a grand toast!
