DetailsThis Mini Wine Corker may not look like much, but it is a great hand corker. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in durability and functionality. The Master Vintner Mini Corker works with sizes #7 and #8 corks of all compositions. Applying direct force to the cork ensures a proper seal to keep your wine protected. We would recommend using a rubber mallet to help insert the cork into the bottle. See our wine corker page for other options.

5 months agoSoaking the corks in very hot water really helps. They slipped right in with out much effort.December 2, 2018One tough corker!I can't imagine anybody who weighs less than 175lbs getting this thing to plug the cork in! I can put my whole weight and still not get the cork in the bottle. It takes some force and maybe a rubber mallet would help, if you have two people. That said I've used it for many bottles and it hasn't broke itself or the cork. If you want to add your sweat along with the wine to the bottle, then this tough corker is for you! Simple but effective.September 3, 2018ehhhgot this with a bottling kit that came with bottles, the corker, and some corks. Soaked the corks while I was working on the bottling process, maybe not long enough or hot enough water, but this was kind of difficult to use. I eded up using a hammer to get the corks in with this thing, which did the job eventually. When I went to open a bottle, the cork ended up breaking.... not sure if it is related, though.April 9, 2018Home brewer useI used it on a very limited batch basis and it worked fine. I can certainly see where a mechanical corker with more leverage would be better for more extensive use.February 2, 2018Purchased
1 year agoCame with a kitIf you boil the corks before use they go in pretty easy
Works very wellMarch 10, 2017Stop, Hammer TimeThis came with my kit. As a woman bottling her first wine, I have to say that this corker was next to impossible for me to use. I simply don't have the strength.
I do, however, have a hammer. Not the gentlest way to get this done, will be looking into methods that require less "man power."February 8, 2017Best cheap corker out thereI tried the other affordable corkers and this one was the simplest and easiest to use by yourself. It takes a little strength but is quite intuitive and I felt more comfortable with it over the double lever or plastic plunger. Eventually I think I will invest in a floor corker but for now, this is a nice introductory option and I really like itFebruary 3, 2017Don't botherIf you get this with a kit, may as well use it. But I would just splurge for the next best corker. This is difficult to use and requires a bit of strength.December 18, 2016
