Best wine opener EVER!
JoEllen from Cedar Rapids, IA– Verified Buyer
Love this product! It makes opening wine bottles fun and easy. I bought one from a specialty store 15 years ago, but I lost it in a move. Finally found this one and couldn't order it fast enought!!
This is a winner!

Pricey, but she is so cute! Works really well and then looks good on the table...

My husband, who has strong opinions about corkscrews (I have no idea why--Im still pulling corks with my 45 year old girl scout knife) loves using this corkscrew. I adore its whimsical anthropomorphism. We are both made very happy by this item.

Très beau, mais un peu gros et il est difficile de dégager le bouchon de liège du tire-bouchon.

Looks can be deceiving.
Christine from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
This is my second corkscrew from Alessandro Mendini. I am disappointed that the corkscrew looks nothing like the picture. The picture is a nice rich red verses the actual corkscrew is a really ugly burgundy color. Not happy with the purchase.

Why shouldn't everything you purchase be special? This one is !!! Love it. Plus it is made well and does the job without any struggling.
