Designed by renowned flatware and wine-key crafters Laguiole, this piece has been two years in the making. In 1992, Laguiole founded a ‘Best Sommelier in the World’ series of keys, which spurred Aldo's ambition to create his own. Traditionally, Laguiole keys are made with only two elements, whereas Aldo’s, in order to realize exactly the key he wanted, is made with five, including brass, fossilized ivory, and resin-brushed compressed wood. The use of red and white symbolizes the Austrian flag, reflecting Aldo's background.
Each Chateau Laguiole corkscrew comes with a Lifetime Guarantee!
The worm has a center groove, which makes removing older corks a bit easier, and the lever is sturdy but smooth. They feel good in your hand, and they’re obviously made with quality materials.
This is a treasure
. Love it.
