Reviewing Wine Bottle Openers - Brain Surgery For Your Pinot

Wine gives off the impression of sophistication.

And that's not even the teeniest tip of the proverbial iceberg. There are literally hundreds of wine bottle openers. Battery operated, rechargeable, the rabbit, vintage, connoisseur, level style...vertical level style. I've personally bought, been given or used at least a dozen of them (although the guillotine one won't fit in my kitchen...sad).
