Granite Base Wine Opener 4 5 135 143
Finally found a reliable an durable wine opener I have previously purchased wine openers with a stand and was disappointed with these products. The devices were not effective in removing the cork. The frontgate product has a sturdy granite base which is both aesthetic and provides stability when opening the bottle. Thus far, no bottle has presented a problem. December 15, 2014
Beautiful! It's a gorgeous piece. My only problem was that the holes in the base were not drilled straight so the neck sat slightly crooked. Quality Control I guess. I have another one being shipped out to me so hopefully it will be straight. :) I love it though! December 11, 2014
Happy with Purchase! This is a gift for my husband. He really likes it. I didn't get the monogram because I wasn't crazy with how the font looked. I may have a plate made elsewhere. Sitting on my server, next to my wine fridge, it looks great. Thank you December 9, 2014
Not as pictured It's a great opener but doesn't sit as perpendicular as in the pic. Bottles are at an angle, not perfectly straight up as pictured. December 8, 2014
Good buy with work The wine opener looks very pretty but now works fine but I had to do some work on all 5 that I bought as Christmas gifts. The base has four screws that connects to the arm of the opener. The four holes in the base have inserts and I had to super glue the inserts so that I could tighten the screws to the granite base. December 2, 2014
wine opener Unit looks nice on the wine bar. Works as described, only negative is it's not functional with the synthetic corks. Keep your old hand cork puller near by for those. December 2, 2014
great purchase I love the product it was purchased as a gift I have one of my own I only wish I could of had a date engraved as opposed to initials November 25, 2014
Beautiful Granite Base Wine Operer Purchased this as a Christmas gift and was so pleased with the product that I ordered one for myself. Would highly recommend. November 18, 2014

Answer: 
Yes, I know exactly what you are feeling. I pushed the cork in the bottle twice and had to look up instructions online. The correct way to use it, is to start with the handle in the back position, away from you. Put the bottle of wine in, hold it, pull the lever towards you and THEN release the bottle, pull the bottle out towards you and as you push the lever back into the starting position the cork will fall out. Hope that helps.

Answer: 
Start with the handle in the up position about 2 o'clock. Put the bottle in and grasp the handles then pull the handle toward you. At the end the bottle will either release from the cork or you can pull the bottle slightly towards you to release the bottle. Then pinch the handles together and reverse the motion of the arm, this will remove the cork from the opener.

Answer: 
It should be all the way back when you start. Pull it straight forward and take your bottle away. Then, pull the handle back and the cork will pop out.

The handle should be in the back position. After grasping the bottle in the clamp, pull the handle forward (do not move from this position). Release clamp and there you have it! To release cork, return handle to back position.

Answer: 
To pull a cork place the single handle horizontal with the base and back towards the upright. Place the bottle into the opener with your right hand and squieeze the handles together to hold the bottle. While holding the handles with your left hand, grasp the single handle with your right hand and pull the handle through its full motion until it is over 180º from its' starting position. The first 1/2 of the movement drives the corkscrew into the cork. The second 1/2 of the movement extracts the cork. Remove the wine bottle leaving the cork in the opener.
Drink wine.
To reinsert the cork, without changing the position of the opener, put the bottle back into position and reverse the position of the single handle. To instead remove the cork from the opener, without a bottle in the opener reverse the single handles position and the cork should fall out.
