Chateau Laguiole was the first Laguiole corkscrew to be created, dated back 1992, by French Master Sommelier and Cutler Guy Vialis. The first “sommelier knife” to have adopted and adapted the ancestral handcrafting traditions and symbols of the Laguiole master cutlers, including the famous bee and the art of polishing fine handles made of precious woods and horns.

After decades of sommeliers and wine enthusiasts’ adoration, Chateau Laguiole revamps its mythic corkscrews for the better: forged bee, reinforced structure, new gift box.

 

 

COLLECTIONS

 Best Sommelier of the World 

Official partner of Association de la Somellerie Internationale for the Best Sommelier of the World competition, Chateau LAGUIOLE creates for each newly elected Best Sommelier of the World, side by side, his / her personalized Sommelier corkscrew. It symbolizes who the winner really is through choices of the handle materials, shapes or symbols added on purpose and bears his signature.
 

 The Classics 

The Classics series was the first created line of Chateau LAGUIOLE. It has been designed to emphasize the handle materials. With minimalist straight cut bolsters at each ending of the handle, 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.
The new version of the Classics series is now crafted with plain bolsters.
 

 Grand Cru 

The Grand Cru series of Chateau LAGUIOLE were created by transforming the Classics series into a stylish and modern design, with wider and beveled bolsters at both endings of the handle. Offering magnificent contrasts with the precious wood or horn, those bolsters reinforce as well the whole structure to sustain even more the professional needs.
 

 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.
 

 Special Editions 

Chateau LAGUIOLE creates from time to time a unique model, often in limited numbers, to celebrate a special event, one person or a partnership.
