The Durand® is a fully patented, two part device that enables the user to successfully remove older and fragile wine corks whole and intact. The Durand was invented by wine collector Mark Taylor who had struggled with challenging corks when opening older fine wines.
Instructions for use are printed on the inside of the reusable wrapper that encases the cork presentation box of The Durand.
Typical issues of problem cork removal are eliminated with The Durand’s unique ability to stabilize the cork during extraction, eliminating side tension, the primary cause of cork fracture and breakage. It is a “must-have” tool for the wine enthusiast and Sommelier to avoid cork removal issues.
