The turn of the corkscrew

I believe most wines should be bottled under screwcap, but I love corks and, in turn, corkscrews. Here are some words of wisdom on this wondrous implement:

“Here’s to the corkscrew “” a useful key to unlock the storehouse of wit, the treasury of Corkscrewlaughter, the front door of fellowship, and the gate of pleasant folly.” “” W.E.P. French

“When it comes to wine, I tell people to throw away vintage charts out the window and invest in a corkscrew. The best way to learn about wine is in the drinking.” “” Alexis Lichine

“Always carry a corkscrew and the wine shall provide itself.” “”Basil Bunting

“The corkscrew, used once a day, keeps the doctor away.” “” Unknown
