And For the Wine Lover that has Everything...

We present the most awesome (let's admit it, the ONLY) steampunk corkscrew and wine pourer we've ever seen.

All I want to know is whether it comes with the guy in the tux to crank the handle for you.

You gotta see this:

And if you have to ask which room of your house you put it in, you can't afford it. This thing needs a special room all its own.

I really enjoy the aesthetic behind steampunk, but this device is practically on par with a Rube Goldberg machine. Great craftsmanship.

I've got three on order; one for reds, one for whites, and one for oranges. But I have to get the over-filling the glass thing fixed. Not acceptable, chap.

Thanks Alder, this will be a perfect addition to my new 40 thousand bottle underground tri-level wine cellar and tasting room. Does the builder do automatic bottle finders too? (-:
