Everyone knows the best Gothic dinner parties require lots of wine – Red wine, of course. What better way to pop those bottles than with the help of an adorable bat wine opener with wings?
We grabbed one to get our party on for Halloween. However, this cute yet functional Vino bat bottle opener is great for year round use. Whether you’re opening wine, beer, or other capped and corked beverages, it’s got you covered!
What is the Bat Wine Opener with Wings?
The bat wine opener with wings is a traditional winged corkscrew style bottle opener. In this case, they’ve taken the “wings” pretty literally. While the functional piece is designed for leverage in popping the cork, this one has silicone bat wings attached.
Now you can open your bottle of wine (that is wine, right?) and enjoy a spooky aesthetic! Just, you know, keep it near the bottle necks, and not your own.
Features of the Ototo Bat Wine Opener:
- Durable metal alloy frame
- Covered in black food safe silicone in a bat design
- About 7” tall and 5.5” wide fully extended, 1.6” thick
- Weighs just 7.2 ounces
- Comes in an easy to wrap box for gifting
- Opens corked bottles and pop-top caps (both wine and beer are covered)
- Dishwasher safe in case you get some drink residue on there
Let’s be serious, while it’s a totally functional bottle opener, the real charm is the bat wings. That’s what sets Vino apart from any other winged corkscrew out there!
Frequently Asked Questions About the Bat Wine Opener With Wings:
How Do You Use the Bat as a Bottle Opener?
The bottle opener is located on the head of the bat. Simply lodge the “fangs” at the bottom of the bat head opening under your bottle cap. Then, tilt the whole opener upwards to release the cap.
How Do You Use the Bat Wine Corkscrew?
1. Set the tip of the corkscrew on the cork that needs removing
2. Hold the base of the opener with one hand, and begin turning the bat-shaped top clockwise with the other, applying even downward pressure on the top
3. As the screw descends into the cork, the wings will automatically raise to a perpendicular position
4. When the screw is fully in the cork and the wings are completely extended, let go of your current grip pattern
5. Use both hands (one on each side) to push the bat wine opener wings down towards the neck of the bottle, which will bring up the corkscrew, and cork along with it
6. Gently wiggle at the base if need be to release the cork completely
Our Overall Ratings of the Ototo Vino Bat Wine Opener
Look, if you’re a fan of bats, Halloween, scary movies, or Gothic in general, this bat wine opener with wings is a must have in my opinion. It’s absolutely adorable, functional, and fits right into the spooky aesthetic.
The downsides here are that the paint scratches easily, which makes it tricky getting out of the packaging. While dishwasher safe, you need to make sure it doesn’t contact anything else sharp.
This bat wine opener with wings is definitely a treat, not a trick. It’s perfect as a gift or for yourself this Halloween. It wins big points in the fun factor and fits into any spooky kitchen. Like most corkscrews, I don’t imagine it will last more than a few years, though that largely depends on usage.
Don’t just take my word for it though – it’s got a 4.7/5 star rating on Amazon with over 3,000 reviews!
