Opening a bottle of wine at the end of the day is one of life’s simple pleasures, but it’s not always so simple for everyone. When life gives you lemons you just make lemonade right? So when you are dealing with arthritis you just look for a wine opener that is great for people with arthritis. We all know this can make even the simplest of task seem painfully difficult and that’s why you need a good wine bottle opener.
Or maybe you need one that is great for elderly people, for your mother or father to easily open a bottle of wine? Because I understand what you need (my father is in his 80’s and I’ve got him a few of these bottle openers) I have compiled a list of four of the best wine bottle openers for people with arthritis or the elderly. I am certain that at least one of these will be to your liking.
TOP 4 WINE BOTTLE OPENERS FOR ARTHRITIS SUFFERERS & THE ELDERLY
Whether you are getting older or have developed a bit of arthritis in your hands, opening bottles of wine has likely gotten a bit more difficult. This is not something that has to be a challenge for you. In fact, there are a few different specialty wine bottle openers on the market that are designed for people who experience difficulty with this. Let me show you my favorite models.
1. Cork Pops Legacy Wine Bottle Opener
A very easy to use wine bottle opener that can be used by anyone to open a bottle. It comes with a cartridge which can be used for opening 60 bottles of wine after which you will need a new cartridge. It doesn’t affect the flavor of the wine in any way. With this you can easily open a bottle in as low as 4-5 seconds!
Considering the number of uses that you get out of this unit, the price is very reasonable. Though, I do dislike the fact that you have to buy replacement cartridges. However, I think that it is very easy to use, so I’d still suggest checking this one out.
- Comes with a cartridge that will open approximately 60 bottles of wine
- Does not affect the flavor of the wine
- Refill cartridges available
- Has a needle guard
- This item is not for sale in Catalina Island

Some people said they did have some problems with longer corks so it might be a good idea to have a backup just in case something like this happens – and by backup I mean another opener from the ones listed below.
2. Brookstone Compact Wine Opener
Though I really like the look of this one, it is actually one of the higher priced options on this list.
Overall, this is a very durable wine bottle opener that can be used with only one hand. Many people with arthritis are praising this product saying it’s very easy to use compared to a regular “T” type corkscrew.
- Handles grab and hold the bottle.
- Push the lever down to plunge the corkscrew deep into the cork.
- Lift the handle with one smooth motion to remove cork.
- Smaller size is perfect for slipping into an apron pocket or onto a wine tray.
- Cleans with rinse of warm water.
