"As a wine enthusiast, there's no greater feeling than uncorking a fresh bottle. It's always been about the anticipation of the pour...until I tried the La Flute. Not only am I excited about the wine itself, but the entire process is now so elegant. The La Flute is something I definitely want to show off to my friends and family. It is a well designed and outstanding product."
-Joe A., Apollo Group/Wine Enthusiast
“The La Flute is beautiful and wonderful for gifts… the colors and design is beautiful. It is so easy to use and doesn't require a lot of strength for women to open wine bottles. I am telling my friends, co-workers, and getting one for my boss!”
-Sandy H., Chef/Wine Lover
“I have had the opportunity to preview a sample of the La Flute …The beautiful design permits me to display it on my dining sideboard. It is always ready for use and the flawless function allows me to easily extract corks. I display the La Flute and guests often ask about the unusual device in the dining room. When I use the La Flute Corkscrew to open a bottle of wine, surprise and amazement ensue. Great fun! Thank you for inventing a device that is both functional and fun.”

A team of entrepreneurs, professionals, and childhood friends from Portland, Oregon. Our love for innovative and unique products has brought us to kickstarter! We humbly come before you today, to ask for your help in funding our first official production of the La Flute Corkscrew!
What is the La Flute Corkscrew?
Awarded the silver medal at the Korean Exhibition of Patented Technologies, the La Flute Corkscrew is unlike any other corkscrews seen on the market today! Shaped like a wine glass, the corkscrew does not completely penetrate the cork, preventing cork debris to ever fall into your brand new bottle of wine. Due to it's one of a kind design, it is not only easy and fun to use, but the cork will never break during extraction. With a built in foil cutter, separate foil cutting attachments are not needed. You can even use the box to display the wine and the La Flute!
U.S. Patent # 6978696
How it works
- Step 1 - Secure the Bottle: Place the La Flute on the wine bottle and push down, to secure the corkscrew on the collar.
- Step 2 - Twist the Base: Rotate the base of the corkscrew clockwise while holding the corkscrew and bottle until it stops.
- Step 3 - Remove the Cork: Holding the bottle and corkscrew, simply rotate body of the corkscrew clockwise until the cork is removed. The foil will be cut as you twist!
To retrieve the cork
Rotate the base of the La Flute until the cork is at the rim of the corkscrew. Then, simply rotate the base of the La Flute counter-clockwise to remove the cork. Reuse the cork to preserve remaining wine.
Journey of the La Flute
Much like how fine wine takes time to age, it has taken over 4 years to be able to finally bring the La Flute Corkscrew to our production stage. During this period, we have received tremendous feedback from people just like you and have gone through numerous design phases to bring optimal quality to our corkscrew.
From plastic prototypes, to our stainless steel product, we have been working hard to address every detail about the La Flute. While working with industry professionals and investing countless resources into design and feature additions, we are eager and ready to start our production of the La Flute!
Our Journey, and You!
Our journey here has been a roller coaster filled with many highs and lows. We never anticipated it would take this much time, money, and sleepless nights to get to where we are today. It would not have been possible to overcome such difficulties without the support of our family, friends, and people just like you!
Many of you have provided the vital feedback from samples to bring our corkscrew to where it is, today. Your countless inquiries as to availability, only strengthen our motivation to work harder to get to this point!
We are now here, ready to run our first production, but we need your help! The ride here has exhausted our financial resources and we ask for a minimum of $10,000 to help fund our first production run. With your help, we hope to go beyond this goal!
Your pledges will help finance various components not only integral to our first production, but the La Flute itself (molds, foil cutters, stainless steel materials, etc.). Become a part of OUR journey today and we can introduce the La Flute Corkscrew to the world, together!

Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges to our project are minimal and limited. Upon completion, meeting estimated delivery time may pose a challenge. However, the La Flute Brand team has been working hard on strategic plans with our manufacturers and the logistics team to address this concern.
With a team experienced in logistics and packaging, we are confident our proactive plans will successfully neutralize any concerns of this matter. We have also dedicated a staff to keep our backers informed about our process from the end of our campaign, to when the corkscrew arrives at your doorstep!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
