"The original "Champion Cork Removal System" was made by the Arcade Manufacturing Company and is based on Michael Redlinger's American patent of 7 September 1897, no. 589,574 and his design patent of 9 June 1896, no. 25,607. As well as an additional patent by Harry Bittner in 1907, no. 845,608. Rogar International is the premier name in speed wine openers. Since 1978, Rogar has been manufacturing quality wine openers. In 1978, the Vintner was introduced by Rogar. This, the "ultimate" corkscrew was a reproduction of the champion - utilizing the original's mechanical concept, enhanced with modern materials. A beautiful design of cherubs and grapes took the place of the original Champion artwork.
The Champion dominated the cork removal market from 1919 through 1933 even though prohibition was in effect during this time. The original "Art Deco" versions of the Champion have been found from as far away as Argentina and Italy. In 1981, the Estate, a cast aluminum model with a grapevine design brought this unique opener to a wider audience. And now, on the 100th Anniversary of the patent filing of the "Champion Cork Removal System", Rogar is proud to join the past and the future with the Centennial Edition of the Champion Wine Opener.
