The bark of the oak tree has always been a wine lover's friend and foe. No other material can Corks can also be very tricky to remove, and have been since they were first used in wine bottles around the end of the 18th Century. In 1979, Herbert Allen; a prolific inventor, invented Screwpull. The impetus for the invention came from his wife, who had a particularly frustrating experience opening a bottle of wine. After trying a number of corkscrews, all unsuccessfully, she gave up and presented her husband with the engineering challenge of a lifetime - to produce a corkscrew that would extract the cork effortlessly and perfectly every time.
The Screwpull Table Model was based on the simple premise that a cork could be removed from the bottle without force, injury or embarrassment, and was an instant hit. Today the Screwpull brand name is recognized world wide.
The ergonomically-designed self-pulling corkscrews remove all types of corks, from tough, synthetics to fragile, older ones. With a comfortable grip and Teflon-coated worm, the Screwpull could become your favorite tableside companion.
