Lorena Ascencios

As part of our series Pro Tool, we’re looking for that must-have device in your line of work, be it a pair of scissorsnotebook, or microphone

The fourth item in our series? A bottle opener. 

Professional: Lorena Ascencios, wine buyer at Astor Wines & Spirits in Manhattan. 

Pro Tool: Waiter’s corkscrew.

Why it’s a Pro Tool: “It kind of looks like a pocket knife, you can fit it in your pocket. It’s discreet and it’s small and it fits just about anywhere … But ultimately the most important aspect of this is the wine in and of itself. “

Click on the audio player below to hear Ascencios explain how to open a bottle of wine with the waiter’s corkscrew — and why you may not want to pop the cork.
