Vinturi is known for their wine aerators, but have recently launched new elegant and sophisticated accessories that are exclusively available at Williams-Sonoma.
Today, we’re reviewing the Vertical Wine Opener (sold exclusively at Williams Sonoma $99) – it’s a high-end wine opener that looks like a sports car and operates like one too.
I have both tendonitis and tennis elbow and dread opening wine bottles. I normally hand off the bottle and the opener to my husband to do the deed. But the Vinturi is so easy to use – the motion is one fluid, easy vertical motion. No tugging, jerking or readjusting my hands just to get the wine opened.
Best part – no pain at all!
It is pricey at $99.00, though Vinturi’s new product line is high-end, made of durable chrome-plated cast zinc and plastic. It’s a heavy beast, but the weight is what makes the lever motion work so well. The weight keeps the wine bottle still and easy to grip. Even with my small hands I had no trouble keeping the wine bottle from moving or wobbling on the table.
They have 3 styles of Vinturi wine openers – the bottom left is the “Traditional Wine Opener” and the bottom right is the “Winged Corkscrew” – available at Williams Sonoma for $99 and $39.95 respectively.
