We had an eventful week at wine-n-gear this week, sending out quotes and mock ups on a variety of wholesale corkscrew, “Ah So” Corkpuller, and Ice Bucket inquiries. Here are a few of our Favorites:  Chrome “Ah So” Corkpuller + Chrome Pulltap’s for Hope & Grace Napa Valley Hope & Grace needed a wine club member gift that was strikingly aesthetic and high-end.

Korbel, the famed California Champagne House (and you can say “champagne” because they are grandfathered in) recently approached us with a complex project. They wanted to do an entire line of wine accessories – wholesale corkscrews, champagne sippers, LED champagne buckets, champagne flutes, and champagne stoppers, all in Korbel’s custom color: Light Green PMS 367.

Custom "Ah So" Butler's Friend Corkpuller and Corkscrew Project - Sullivan Rutherford Estates

One of their wine club shipments going out had the theme of “Vintage Wine” – and what better way to enunciate the theme than to include a custom branded “Sullivan Rutherford Estates” Ah So Corkpuller. “Ah So’s” are generally used for older vintage wines. The reason? The dual prong mechanism grips the cork and extracts it without having to drill into the cork like a corkscrew. This is an advantage when talking about older wines that may have brittle corks.  Originally...


Case Study: Custom Ice Bucket + Branded Innovation Coutale Sommelier French Corkscrew

/ Arthur Morgan

Philippe Dandurand, the gold standard for wine distribution in Canada, recently approached us with a unique project. They wanted to create an ice bucket and a matching custom corkscrew in their trademark Pantone 2935U. At first we discussed the possibilities of the Pulltap’s Spanish corkscrew in a custom Pantone with a matching white gift box. Here’s an initial mock up: After seeing samples, however, Dandurand ended up preferring the Coutale Sommelier Innovation Corkscrew (similar manual double-lever mechanism to the Spanish Pulltap’s). They weren’t sure, however, whether they wanted to do the corkscrew in White with logo in Pantone 2935U, or...
