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!

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.
Recently, Leisa Bates, inventor of BellaSvago Enterprises‘ newest product, Torkscrew™, was featured in the very impressive video blog Wine Is Serious Business. For those of you that don’t know (is that possible?), Torkscrew is BellaSvago’s latest product, good for opening virtually every bottle. Not only was a great time had by all, but the highly regarded wine connoisseurs were able to offer their candid and honest first impressions of Torkscrew™. Did it end up being a “connoisseur corkscrew“?
