and fragile wine bottle corks whole and undamaged. Designed by a prominent wine
collector, and named for a mentor and world renowned sommelier, it has been

wine collector, known for outstanding vertical tastings, and having struggled
with difficulties in extracting some older and fragile corks, developed and
produced the Durand. The Durand is a fully patented, and surprisingly simple,
two part device that permits the user to successfully remove older and fragile
wine bottle corks whole and intact.
Durand has been tested and used with great success by numerous wine lovers,
collectors, and local and internationally known sommeliers. It has extracted the
cork ... completely ... each and every time.
the Durand, most corks, old and new, were removed from wine bottles in two or
three main ways, with mixed results.
Most were removed using corkscrews of various kinds, often breaking, damaging,
and/or leaving portions of the cork to be separately removed.
• Some were removed using a two
bladed ah-so device that occasionally pushed an older cork down into the bottle
to be fished out by other devices.
• Other devices, such as a hollow
needle inserted through the cork to blow the cork out often pushed a fragile
cork into the bottle and/or put unwanted pressure on the bottle contents.
Durand removes old and fragile corks without those unwanted outcomes.
