Torkscrew™ featured in Imbibe Magazine!

August 9, 2010 in In the News, Reviews by Mark Bates

From the days when Torkscrew was merely an idea through production, manufacturing and our official product launch, Bellasvago Enterprises has had the opportunity to meet a host of wonderful people — wine makers, restaurateurs, bloggers, catalogers and more. It’s been fabulous!

Recently our friends over at Imbibe Magazine were kind enough to feature us in the most recent issue. Not only do we love their publication, but we are very appreciative for their nod to Torkscrew. Thank you, Imbibe!

We are getting TorkScrew reviews on a weekly, sometimes even daily basis these days and we’re thrilled! The most recent came in the other day from JennyReviews, a site that reviews the latest and greatest of everything. As always, we welcome your own reviews telling us about your TorkScrew experience. Feel free to leave in the comment section!

Looking for a unique, thoughtful and personalized gift for a wine lover? Think TorkScrew Wine Bottle OpenerJe. While maintaining the impeccable elegance and timeless posture of conventional wine presentation, TorkScrew offers a professional, hassle-free opening process for nearly any bottled drink.

TorkScrew Wine Bottle Opener embraces the recent trend to screw cap wines and has a magnetic base that keeps it handy and easily available whenever required. The product comes with a soft grip and features a non-slip rubberized base unlike other bottle openers in the market. If you were ever hesitant of uncorking Champagne for the fear of doing a clumsy job and becoming the laughing stock of your social group, the Torkscrew comes to your rescue and uncorks your Champagne in the most stylish and refined manner. The handy bottle opener comes with a convenient five-year warranty is available in six attractive colors.

Torkscrew has professional bartender standard features included in it to make the product eye-catching as well as highly functional for opening corked beverage bottles. Traditional wine popping has tremendous ceremonial value attached to it and goes beyond being just another process to entertain guests, hence it requires a more sophisticated approach. That is precisely why Torkscrew makes for an ideal gift for wine lovers. It retains the pomp and splendor associated with the customary wine bottle opening process. You can have your product gift or custom packaged on prior request or even have it custom imprinted and colored for large orders.

The all-in-one screw cap wine opener, corkscrew and foil cutter with a sleek design is great for restaurants, wine wholesalers and distributors, wineries and home wine enthusiasts. Since winemakers from all over the world are recognizing the benefits of replacing the corks of wine bottles with screw caps and the trend is on a rise with New World winemakers (screw caps preserve the wine for a longer spell and get rid of the cork taint), Topscrew’s professional bartender-style opener has been designed with a dexterous ability to easily open any Stelvin screw cap or wine enclosure along with the Amcor bottles.

Thank you, JennyReviews!

TorkScrew™ — “Putting the class into screwing!”

June 1, 2010 in BellaSvago™, Reviews by BellaSvago

We always love when Bellasvago Enterprises ends up in the news. In fact, we welcome all kinds of feedback, as long as it’s honest. We were so excited to see the following review on the Mutineer Magazine website. A big thank you to them for their feedback and review, not to mention the best closing line ever written. Enjoy!

Whether it be environmental or economical, more and more high-class wines these days are coming in screw top bottles. Unfortunately, there is nothing magical or exciting about unscrewing the cap off of a bottle. Screw caps have pretty much eliminated the opportunity for a mystical and romantic uncorking presentation, which is no good if you’re a sommelier at a fancy shmancy restaurant or if you are trying to impress a date with your Rico Suave vino skills.

Think about all of the anticipation and awe that happens when watching a proper uncorking. When perfectly orchestrated, it is like a dance. (However, fumbling and breaking the cork in the bottle can be disastrous to one’s wine reputation).

So how does one preserve one’s repertoire and class while opening a less-than-exhilarating screw capped bottle of vino?

Well, fortunately for all you beverage savvy individuals out there, the brilliant minds behind Bella Svago have developed a product to help ensure your drinking habits stay classy. With convenience and elegance, the TorkScrew screw cap wine opener allows for proper opening and presentation of virtually any bottled beverage, including corked bottles and Champagne.

Being in Italy for five weeks really helped crystallize in my mind the idea of ‘beautiful entertainment’ It’s not fancy in an uptight way, but in a way that appreciates what’s real and has quality, and that is engaging, interesting, and fun.” – Leisa Bates, co-founder of the TorkScrew.

In addition to resolving presentation issues with screw caps, the TorkScrew also helps to alleviate the embarrassment of fumbling the de-corkage of sparkling wine. With the TorkScrew, guests will no longer live in the fear of getting their eye shot out by a flying cork.

At $20 a pop, the TorkScrew is the quintessential bottle opener for all types of fine beverages. Stay classy, winos.
