Wine-making has a rich history that goes back to 4,000 BC or possibly earlier. Biblical scholars claim that Noah had a vineyard and made the fruity fermented drink for his tribe. The oldest wine bottle ever found is preserved in Germany. It was originally made by Romans in 325 A.D. The background of the grape vine itself is a very interesting story also. Today, modern connoisseur and wine-makers worldwide agree that the drink is best served in a glass bottle sealed with a cork. Wine bottle openers have also evolved into various styles and methods designed to efficiently open a reserve.
The cheapest and most widely used model of wine bottle opener is the "Waiter's Corkscrew" style. It usually has the look and feel of a pocketknife and is easy to use and carry. Like knives, the quality can range from a simply utilitarian style to a beautiful artistic masterpiece. The "Rabbit Wine Opener" uses a cork screw for opening also but automatically puts it in the right place. These models look like rabbits and are enjoyed by party hosts with a sense of style. The same people who invented the "Rabbit" bring us the electric Houdini style wine bottle openers. These models have an LCD screen to let wine drinkers know how many uses are left before a recharge is needed.
The Rogar model stands upright and looks like an invaluable piece of kitchen equipment. Electric versions come in a variety of colors. Wine drinkers have many unique options for enjoying their vino.
