No matter how much you love boxed wine, wine bottles and corks are not going out of style any time soon. Explore the major styles of wine openers to find the one that’s right for you; from the portable waiter’s friend to the old-hands friendly electric wine opener.

Waiter’s friend corkscrews range from the modest ‘Pull-Taps’ to the Lamborghini-like ‘Laguiole.’
