The Durand Corkscrew

The ultimate corkscrew for mature wine, the Durand helix and blades will ensure the safe and swift removal of fragile corks in mature and premium bottles of wine. The proper use of the Durand will prevent fragile corks from crumbling or snapping ensuring that your wine is not compromised by cork remnants.

The Durand was invented by wine collector Mark Taylor who had struggled with challenging corks when opening older fine wines. He founded Wining Taylors, LLC (based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA) to manufacture and market The Durand in 2007. The Durand is named for Yves Durand, a world-renowned sommelier, and a personal friend and mentor.

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.

"The Durand is an absolute essential for anyone who enjoys opening and drinking older wines. The Durand is simply a must-have." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

    How do I use The Durand?

    Click this link for the official video of how to use The Durand.

    1. Screw HELIX into center of cork until STABILIZER BAR rests against top of cork (or bottle). 
    2. With BLADES on either side of STABILIZER BAR, insert first the “long” then “short” BLADE between the cork and bottle. 
    3. 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. 
    4. 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.
