In good restaurants, the sommelier's duties include keeping
the wine cellar stocked, and knowing exactly which of the
wines will make that day's menu shine. The sommelier is
also an expert in the art of serving wine. The wine sommelier
is similar to a professional wine collector who shares the best of the collection with the restaurant's patrons.
There are many bottle-openers, corkscrews and waiter's friends
available these days, but go into a top Parisian restaurant
and more than likely, the head sommelier will be using a
Laguiole, pronounced "la-yoll", to open your wine
bottle, just like the classic olive wood model shown here.
The unrivalled quality of these bottle openers is legendary
among serious oenologists. Owing to their elegant, distinctive
lines, as well as fine craftsmanship and expensive materials,
they are recognised as a design classic, and are sold among
collectors for high prices.

The Sommelier Laguiole is a "High
End" corkscrew with an authentic long-standing history.
Supplied with a leather sheath. If you are someone who
has a keen interest in good wines, and are fed-up with
poor quality bottle openers, then this product is definitely
Why are Laguiole's so special?
The Laguiole, pronounced "la-yoll", denotes
high-quality traditional French pocket-knives, originally
produced in the town of Laguiole in the Aveyron region
in the south of France. The name "Laguiole" relates not
only to the distinctive style, but also the high quality
of the materials used, and the quality of manufacture.
The name does not belong to one manufacturer, and sometimes
the name Laguiole is put onto inferior products that have
come from outside this region. 70% of the best production
comes from Thiers, a long-established centre of the cutlery
industry in France. Our Laguiole wine opener is a genuine
Laguiole product, hand crafted by Therias, still a family-run
business in their 6th generation, who have been manufacturing
high-quaility knives in Thiers since 1819 and is the leading
French manufacturer of authentic Laguiole.
