The Durand removes old and fragile corks whole and undamaged. Instructions for use are printed on the inside of the reusable wrapper that encloses the cork presentation box of the Durand.
Using The Durand for older, fragile or compromised corks eliminates the unwanted outcomes of broken corks, corks pushed into bottles, or corks partially removed leaving pieces floating in the wine. The Durand removes the cork whole and contained.
Numerous wine lovers, collectors, and nationally and internationally known sommeliers have enjoyed The Durand’s performance and appreciated its proven track record. The Durand has been well received and reviewed in the national and international press, as well as in wine magazines, periodicals, and online media.
How to use The Durand:
- Screw HELIX into center of cork until STABILIZER BAR rests against top of cork (or bottle).
- With BLADES on either side of STABILIZER BAR, insert first the “long” then “short” BLADE between the cork and bottle.
- Work the BLADES down between the cork and bottle by pressing down alternately over each BLADE using the HANDLE. Continue this “rocking” motion until the bottom of the HANDLE rests against the top of the STABILIZER BAR.
- Hold the bottle securely. With the other hand grasp the STABILIZER BAR and HANDLE together and twist, then pull upward slowly continuing to twist to remove the cork.
Even with the stability and support offered by the Durand, the very oldest and more fragile corks may benefit from a little added care. Use your fingers on the cork near the neck of the bottle to help ‘nurse’ the cork during the later stages of removal.
