We all know the French like their cheese, snails, garlic, frogs legs and of course wine, so it’s no wonder they have a Corkscrew Museum. The Musée du Tire-Bouchon has over 1000 exhibits with some dating back to the 17th century. No one really knows where the corkscrew originated but is believed it may be English dating back to the end of the 17th century. Back then they were very simple not like the ones we have today, some nearly needing an engineering degree to work. The Corkscrew museum is part of the Domaine De La Citadelle estate who make a lovely selection of wines including the La Chataigneier and Les Artemes which uses old vine grapes from the lovely southern Rhone Valley, so its well worth a visit to the vineyard when you visit the corkscrew museum.
