Here are the correct answers for today’s Testy Tuesday Quiz:


The Nut Screw is not a type of wine opening device.

The Ah-So-Cork Puller: This wine opener looks strange, but it’s a tried and true wine opening tool that can be easily stored or carried. To use, work in the two prongs between the cork and bottle. Once all the way in, twist and pull to bring out the cork. It’s also important to note that this cork puller takes considerably more strength to use than the above methods, and is a preferred tool for older corks.

TheDurand: This is a newer style of wine opener that combines the idea behind the Ah-So and the Twist and Pull. This is the most ideal corkscrew for older, fragile corks; however, it’s also one of the more expensive options.

Air Pressure Pump: This wine opener makes use of air pressure to push the cork out from the bottle. Simply insert the needle through the cork and pump until the cork is pushed from the bottle.

In some restaurants, the service bar is the area designated for servers to retrieve drinks made by the bartender?
