What is a bat wine opener?

The bat wine opener, named Vino, is as adorable as he is spooky. He has tiny fangs and wings that open and close as you use him, making him your trusty Halloween sidekick. (Check out some of our other favorite Halloween gifts for those who can’t get enough witches and zombies.)
With an alloy and metal construction, Vino is sturdy and functional. With a corkscrew and a tab, he can help open any bottle of wine or beer. The bat wine opener is also BPA-free, rust-resistant and dishwasher-safe, making it easy to clean and use without worrying about chemicals.

How to Use a Bat Wine Opener
Katie Bandurski/Taste of Home
Far more than just a novelty item, Vino the bat wine opener puts the “fun” in “functional.” We put him to the test and were impressed by the sturdy quality and smart design details. His fangs cut through the foil on top of your wine, and as you twist the corkscrew, his wings expand like he’s about to take flight.
His wings are made out of sturdy silicone for easy wiping in case there’s a spill. And his face opens a beer bottle with ease. Designed to be durable, Vino adds surprise and entertainment to something as simple as opening a bottle. Plus, could he look any cuter on a bar cart?
About the same size as an average wine opener, Vino makes it easy to keep the bottles uncorked and uncapped during all of your holiday gatherings. See for yourself thanks to the OTOTO_Design TikTok page.
