Can I get replacement parts?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, you have to buy a new corkscrew. We had an Estate corkscrew opener ,that we ordered from Wine Enthusiast, for years and years It opened 1000s of bottles of wine for us. When it finally player out, we ordered a new one (now called Legacy) from Wine Enthusiast. It opened one bottle, and then ceased up. We reported that, and Wine Enthusiast sent us another one. It did the same thing after a few bottles. We reported it again, and they sent us a 3rd one. Same thing. Can't believe they had such a fabulous product that lasted years, to be replaced by one with some kind of faulty "plastic" inside mechanism that couldn't handle the pressure of opening more than a couple of bottles before it failed. Wine Enthusiast offered to send us a 4th one, but we declined and asked that they let the manufacturer know of the problem. All this was over a few month period in mid-2014. Last week, I bought a Legacy corkscrew just like those received from Wine Enthusiast from Total Wine. It's working like a charmp, so maybe Legacy has fixed the problem.
Can the Legacy corkscrew opener be engraved?
Susan G on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. I had never thought to do that. I would take a picture of it to a local engraver and see if it could be done. Great idea I may do that myself. It is a handsome piece and I have it mounted on the wooden tripod. It is quite the conversation piece
The cast iron handle snapped while I was opening a bottle of wine. Can I obtain a replacement handle? The Estate opener was given to us by our son when we moved into our home and has been very dependable for 15 years.
Mike P on Dec 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have gone through 3 of these openers within the last year. Every single one broke. We finally gave up and ordered an opener from somebody else. Good Luck!
Two pads came in the boxes, one goes between wine open near the clamp. Where does the other one go?
Jeffrey on Dec 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The other pad goes under the table between the clamp and table. This wine opener is not a good quality product for the price We bought a second one and it broke after a short time. We complained and it was replaced free of charge. But it didn't hold up. After 3 of these we gave up. They are a beautiful wine opener tho. It's a shame.

Can the legacy corkscrew openet be engraved?
Susan G on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would take it to an engraver and find out. Mine is mounted on a stand and there may be room there to at least add a label of some sort. I had to replace the corkscrew last year and it has worked fine since then.

Do I need to remove the foil wrapper before pulling cork from the bottle?
Kat on Mar 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, always remove the foil from the bottle. This will allow the cork to come out much easier and your corkscrew will last much longer.
If mounting on a countertop, how much overhang must the counter have for it to hold on to? Thanks!
jamie on Dec 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. You would need about 3" of overhang to mount the Legacy Corkscrew. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach to a consultant at 800 356 8466. Thank you again.
We bought the legacy wine opener but it only works like 1 out of 8 tries. The screw is coming down like it's supposed to, it just isn't sticking into the cork....weird huh??
Leigh Ann H on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please call our customer service department at 800.648.6058 and they can assist you with this. Thank you.
How wide does the clamp open? My bar top is 1 7/8" thick
Paul L on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Paul, if you’re talking about the receiving clamp, it is designed to handle most any wine bottle. We’ve never experienced any problems. I must tell you we are very pleased with this product. We experienced a faulty Teflon betting and Wine Enthusiast replaced it immediately. I hope this answers your question

what is the warrantee?

Just wandering if this product can also be used without being attached to a table or counter top. Or if anyone has had a problem with scratching your table or counter from this product.

Stepha on Dec 7, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the Legacy opener can be used in conjuction with our Legacy stand. I have not heard of anyone scratching their countertop when using the bracket. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact a Storage Consultant at 800 377 3330. Thank you again

Not Again!
I've had two of these openers and while they are so easy to use, the internal machinery is nothing more than cheap nylon gears. Deceiving in view of the great looking exterior. Face removing a difficult cork, and you'll watch the opener die in one simple lever action. Simple fix by changing the materials if the manufacturer was so inclined.

Seemed great at first
My daughter bought this for us for a Christmas gift last year. It looks sturdy and sharp on the bar counter. The internal corkscrew malfunctioned and bent and broke after opening about 20 bottles of wine. When I took it apart, the corkscrew is very thin and flimsy. I would not waste my money on another one. I am buying a replacement corkscrew for it only because of it's sentimental value. I plan to use another corkscrew for most of my opening needs.

Non-functional after 4 months
Worked wonderfully when it first arrived then about four months into it the handle mechanism would get stuck halfway up. Called and ordered a replacement part which didn't help at all. Called again and the rep said there's a 60 day warranty and that there's nothing they could do. Now I have a nice paper weight.

Second time it works fine
The first item delivered did not work; the second, [...] does and well. Neither order had an instruction manual on repairs, particularly on replacing a screw worm which was bought separately.

Poor quality
Bought this Dec. 12, 2012, didn't even last 1 year. Cork crew bends and jams the mechanism. We do not recommend the Legacy Corkscrew...too much money for such poor quality.
November 5, 2013
Worked good for about 20 bottles. Started getting difficult on real cork bottles and finally would work only if one person held the bottle clamp with both hands and pushed up on the bottle and the second person operated the handle with two hands. 60 day warranty was too short as this began to fail about day 75.

Doesn't disappoint - Works great
It is very easy to use. Does a great job of uncorking bottles, plus you can re-cork the bottle.

Bad worm design, excellent customer serv
We enjoy our wine, as a result the Legacy gets frequent use. However, the worm design only holds up for several months. We like the product but engineers need to go back to drawing board to design a stronger, more durable worm.
October 23, 2014
Poor quality
I have had this replaced 3 times. Worm keeping bending and jamming up.
Customer service sent me parts to fix...?

Will try again I guess...
