Wine Openers & Corkscrews: How to Open a Bottle of Wine
A wine opener and corkscrew are two wine tools that every enthusiast should own. Opening a bottle of wine may seem simple and straightforward, but it's no easy task. Some corks are made with such poor quality that they fall apart while you are trying to open them. Sometimes the corks may become stuck inside of the bottle. No matter what kind of challenges you may encounter when trying to open your wine, having a corkscrew or wine opener around is an absolute must.
The Art of Opening a Wine Bottle Made Easy
Wine consumption is an art that should be catered to. There are many ways to open a bottle of wine. Although the action is essentially the same, there is no shortage of accessories, tools and openers available for you to use. It doesn’t matter if you are an occasional wine drinker or a famous sommelier, treat yourself to a corkscrew that is unique, like you and your collection.
A winged lever corkscrew can enable you to open a bottle of wine with ease and without the fear of cork breakage.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
