Removing the cork from a bottle of wine can be a frustrating experience–especially if you are trying to extract a cork from a bottle of Bordeaux, which is noted for having a long cork. With the invention of the Rabbit wine opener, removing a cork from any bottle of wine has now become a simple procedure. Though more expensive than other wine openers, the Rabbit makes removing the cork from a bottle of wine actually enjoyable.

Things You'll Need

Remove the foil cap that seals the cork with the foil cutter most Rabbit openers come with. Place the foil cutter over the top of the wine bottle and press both sides as you turn the bottle around it. If you do not have a foil cutter, use a small knife to cut around and remove the foil.

Place the Rabbit over the top of the wine bottle with your left hand. Center the corkscrew or worm over the cork.

Raise the top handle with your right hand while holding the Rabbit by its gripping handles with your left hand. Place the gripping handles firmly around the neck of the bottle. Use your right hand to raise the corkscrew by bringing the top handle forward and down.

Insert the corkscrew into the cork by bringing the top handle up and back. Pull the cork up by bringing the top handle forward and down.

Remove the cork from the corkscrew by bringing the top handle up and back. Grip the cork firmly with the gripping handles and bring the top handle forward and down, releasing the cork.
