This Bench Corker is ideal for those who want an easy to use corker that compresses and rams home the cork in one motion of the handle. Fits all wine bottles except magnums, and works with all the corks we sell. 42” tall.
This also works with Belgian Ale Corks and Belgian Ale Bottles, although you will have to learn to not press the handle all the way down (about half way is fine) to keep half the cork out of the bottle so it mushrooms. Made in Portugal.

Q: Is this a Ferrari brand?
A: This is made in Portugal, and is the same model sold by Ferrari of Italy (this corker is sold under at least a couple different brand names). The model we stock does not say 'Ferrari' on the box or the corker itself.
Not well suited to beer bottling
Gotta be honest, I'm a little disappointed with this product - I'm sure it works very well with wine bottles (can't wait to try it out for my next batch), but it isn't suited for corking beer bottles. Yes, it's adjustable so that you can leave some of the cork out of the bottle, but it still puts the cork in too far (about 2/3 of the cork, when it should be more like half). I had to put an additional metal ring on top to try to make it stop higher. You should make the threading on the plunger longer, so we can do this without extra layers. Plus it is not well suited to shorter bottles, like 500 ml size. I had to put an additional item on the platform so the bottle would fit. Finally, the mechanism does not dilate wide enough after corking to allow a partially inserted cork to come out. You should make the mechanism open up wider. Even though it doesn't work as well as I had hoped, it is still way better than the hand corker I was using.
Essential for any home wine maker
Works phenomenally and made corking my mead a breeze. I can't wait to test this out on corking Belgian ales.
Works Even Better than Expected - Solid Construction
Made in Portugal for an Italian company an almost certainly designed with the European home winemaker in mind - this thing is built to last. I couldn't believe how easily it corked my Belgian beer bottles. I think a lot of the stuff made in Europe for family winemaking is of excellent quality and this is no exception. This is probably the last corker you will ever need and an excellent value.
I have used this corker to bottle homemade meads and wines. It is solidly constructed and works well, making it a good value for the money.
This bench corker is simple and very sturdy. Used to cork Belgium ale style corks and found very easy to set up. To avoid Belgium cork to run all the way down, recommend to fit rubber stopper on press rod to act as stop.
