Rogar was founded in Abilene, Texas in 1975. The goal then, as now, was to design, manufacture and market top quality products. By focusing on fine craftsmanship, unique products and innovative packaging, Rogar has become a leader in the sales of antique-style wine openers, hanging and wall-mounted pot racks and other fine products.
Rogar International Corporation has been the premier name in speed wine openers since it's introduction of the solid brass Vintner in 1975. Like Rogar's current Champion and Estate wine openers, the Vintner was based on the "Champion Cork Removal System" made by the Arcade Manufacturing Company using Michael Redlinger's American patent of 1897. Even then, the Champion had the unique ability to uncork and recork. Rogar took the orginal's mechanical concept and has continued to enhance it with modern matierals. Although the Vintner is no longer inproduction, and has become a collector's item, Rogar's Estate and Champion wine openers are now the fastest, easiest and most stylish way to open a wine bottle. They are fast, simple, and foolproof.
As we enter a new millennium, Rogar has kept pace with the times. Although the inspiration for their wine openers comes from the past, the technology is 21st century.
All their Estate and Champion openers have been designed to work on the newest flange top wine bottles as well as standard wine bottles. They even can be used to open corked olive oil bottles.
All Rogar products are proudly crafted in Virginia, USA, and carry a one-year limited warranty.
