Watch winemakers demonstrate how to use an ah-so wine opener for older vintages. This two prong wine opener is the preferred way to open a bottle of wine once it's more than 10 years old.

Feb 29, 2020 - 1:45 “...integrity for up to 15 years...” blimey, what kind of rubbish corks are being used by your wine makers? It can take >20 years for a port to be mature enough for drinking (e.g. the 1994 Grahams is just starting to show really well)...and their corks will easily last over 50 years. The Ah-So is however a great tip for older corks. Even better is the Durand, which combines an Ah-So with a fine cork screw and is astonishing with vintage corks.

Jun 19, 2019 - I suck at using this tool. The cork always goes in the bottle lol. I need more practice

Feb 3, 2019 - Jesus! I've been using this thing for decades and never knew that it was called an Ah-So. Beware, it does take some practice and strength to shimmy it into the neck of the bottle without pushing the cork into the bottle. Thanks for the video

John M Says:
Dec 17, 2018 - I didn't have a corkscrew on hand, but I had an ah-so, and didn't want to accidentally shove the cork into the bottle. Your video was a great help, as the uncorking process went off without a hitch. Thanks!
