A bit of History

In 1992 Guy Vialis, Master Sommelier and Cutler was the first to adapt the Laguiole knife design to a true waiter style wine opener. He thought that sommeliers and wine enthusiasts needed an elegant and performing sommelier knife to open their cherished bottles. Chateau LAGUIOLE was born. The famous knife Laguiole, named after the Auvergnat village in France "Laguiole" was first made in 1829. But no cutlery was making any wine openers worthy the name of that famous knife until Guy Vialis launched Chateau LAGUIOLE collections. Chateau LAGUIOLE quickly became the tools adopted by the best wine professionals around the world, included the elected Best Sommeliers of the World, each of them endorsing one specially Chateau LAGUIOLE corkscrew designed for them and baring their name.

BEST SOMMELIERS OF THE WORLD

Official partner of ASI, Chateau LAGUIOLE creates for each newly elected Best Sommelier of the World, side by side, its personalized Sommelier corkscrew, not only baring its signature, but symbolizing who the winner is through choices of the handle materials, shapes or symbols added on purpose.
 

GRAND CRU

The Grand Cru series of Chateau LAGUIOLE were created by transforming the Classics series into a stylish and modern design, with beveled brass at both endings of the handle. Thus, those wider beveled brasses made them even more durable openers, for heavy duty use.
 

THE CLASSICS

The Classics series of Chateau LAGUIOLE has been designed to emphasize the handle material. With minimalist straight cut brass at each ending of the handle, versus beveled brass on the Grand Cru series, the warmth of the wood or the glossy touch of the horn make them a discreet and true master piece of artcraft for wine enthusiasts.
 

CHATEAU DE VERSAILLES

The Chateau de Versailles collection is a unique and limited series. All Versailles models are made exclusively of wood varieties recycled from the gardens of the famous Chateau de Versailles after a massive storm destroyed many trees in France in early 2000. Each handle is made of wood aged from 221 to 324 years old, bringing us back to a period when the Kings of France were still living at Versailles.
Chateau LAGUIOLE Versailles series honors those rare wood essences by adding only one beveled solid brass at the top, allowing the wood to cover the handle to the end. Magnificent. Versailles series lever is engraved with the symbol of the past Kingdom of France, the Lys Flower.
