Oeno Motion Corkscrew

One of L’Atelier du Vin’s signature accessories, the Oeno Motion Corkscrew is manufactured with a beautiful metal chrome and solid wood finish. Paired with a sleek, curved design and a vertical lever, it is a powerful wine opener that exudes elegance and charisma.

The Oeno Motion Corkscrew is available with a standard silver stainless-steel finish that exemplifies its beauty. You can also select the Oeno Motion Wood & Black Corkscrew that swaps the stainless steel for a black matt coating that creates a more sophisticated aesthetic.

To open a bottle with an Oeno Motion corkscrew, position the steel worm on top of the cork and operate the ergonomic lever. This will extract and extend the cork in one smooth, effortless motion that combines strength and finesse while gripping the wine cork. Repeat this motion one more time to remove the cork entirely from the corkscrew and serve your wine to your guests.

Soft Machine Corkscrews

The Soft Machine Corkscrews are extremely fluid and versatile wine openers. They pull the cork out of your wine bottle in one smooth motion without any torsion or effort that may compromise the cork integrity. They also have a built-in foil cutting blade to remove any extra sealing around the lid of the wine bottle.

The Soft Machine Corkscrews come in various exquisite designs. You can select the Soft Machine Brass Corkscrew that blends solid brass with a stainless-steel finish. If you prefer a little more colour in your corkscrew, you can select the Soft Machine Rosewood Corkscrew that substitutes solid brass for a sleek rosewood.

On the other hand, if you’re a traditionalist at heart, you can choose the Soft Machine Crystal Corkscrew that blends steel, chrome alloy, and polycarbonate for a conventional customary opening. Soft Machine corkscrews are some of the most adaptable L’Atelier du Vin wine accessories, and the variety of designs and finishes complement any wine serving atmosphere.

Wine corkscrews began as simple tools to uncork fine bottled wine and enable quality tastings. The Chic Monsieur Steel Corkscrew is arguably the most traditional L’Atelier du Vin product that pays homage to the old ways.

The Chic Monsieur Steel Corkscrew’s thin ribbon is manufactured with curved metal in an arch design. It also possesses an expressive head that makes it easier to handle and simplifies how the cork is pulled out of the wine bottle.

The Chic Monsieur Steel Corkscrew has a naked structure with very few embellishments in its design. This corkscrew is perfect for wine lovers that appreciate more simple accessories so they can more readily indulge in wine tastings.

Bilame Nomad

The Bilame Nomad is a twin blade corkscrew that pierces but conserves the integrity of the wine cork. Suppose you’re hosting a tasting but intend to preserve some wine for another occasion. The Bilame Nomad allows for an easy cork extraction that you can simply reinsert into the bottle when it’s time to call it a night.


The Bilame Nomad is often referred to as a sommelier’s travelling companion. Back in France, when it was first designed, sommeliers would carry the Bilame Nomad with them and sample bottles of wine they would recommend to their patron guests. Since the cork was preserved by the corkscrew’s design, it was easy enough to reinsert the cork into the bottle, leaving guests none the wiser.

Unworked fawn leather aligns the outside of each case, creating a patina with time and peregrinations. Inside each case is a resistant and coloured technical leather, creating an elegant yet simple finish.
