  • The Best Corkscrew for Opening Wine

    The Best Corkscrew for Opening Wine

    by Nick Guy

    Although you can spend plenty of money on a gadgety wine opener, every wine expert we spoke to prefers a simple, double-hinged corkscrew. We especially like True Fabrications' Truetap. Yes, it’s a knockoff of the Pulltap’s—the corkscrew most recommended by experts—but in our tests, we found that it is similar in handling, one of the least expensive models we tried, and solidly built, and unlike the Pulltap’s, it can be shipped from a reliable, local source. And unlike wing corkscrews, it’s compact and slim, which means you can buy a couple and keep extras in your desk, glove compartment, or backyard—so you’re always ready to open up a bottle.
