Rogar International Corporation has been the premier name in speed wine openers since it's introduction of the solid brass Vintner in 1975. Like Rogar's current Champion and Estate wine openers, the Vintner was based on the "Champion Cork Removal System" made by the Arcade Manufacturing Company using Michael Redlinger's American patent of 1897. Even then, the Champion had the unique ability to uncork and recork. Rogar took the original's mechanical concept and has continued to enhance it with modern materials. Although the Vintner is no longer in production and has become a collector's item, Rogar's Estate and Champion wine openers are now the fastest, easiest and most stylish way to open a wine bottle. They are fast, simple and foolproof.
As we enter a new millennium, Rogar has kept pace with the times. Although the inspiration for their wine openers comes from the past, the technology is 21st century.
