Uncorking : Open With Ease

Tired of breaking corks or accidentally pushing them into the bottle? Here’s how to open your wine with ease:

• Twist the corkscrew’s spiral into the middle of the cork until only one curl is showing

• Wedge the middle of the lever onto the top of the bottle to begin pulling out the cork

• Use the end of the lever to finish popping out the cork

• We suggest uncorking your wine a few minutes early to air it out before serving!

Decanting : Get Even Smoother Flavors

It’s best to have these three types of glasses for your wine:
