Carefully Curated Products for Discerning Ladies and Gentlemen

New Arrivals Thursday: Unique Gifts for that Special Wine Lover on Your List

The Proper Moose is pleased to introduce two new products guaranteed to dazzle the wine enthusiast on your holiday gift list: an elegant one-of-a kind corkscrew from the French village of Laguiole, handmade by the same craftsmen who produce our popular authentic Forge de Laguiole folding pocket knives; and a special line of soaps infused with a selection of popular wines whose high anti-oxidant properties and fragrant scents add an aromatic moisturizing boost for your morning wash.

Forge de Laguiole Corkscrew (Sommelier)

forge_de_laguiole_juniper_handle_corkscrew_at_maisonlipariHighly prized by wine enthusiasts from around the world, Le Sommelier is quite possibly the most elegant corkscrew you will find anywhere. Its ergonomic design and functionality won it the coveted prize Design Plus award at the Ambiente International Trade Fair (1996) in Frankfurt, Germany. The uncompromising fit and finish make these “pieces of art,” to be cherished and handed down by wine lovers from generation to generation. Although a slightly different design from the folding pocket knife model, they have a distinctive Bee on the spine, a symbol of Laguiole, to ensure their authenticity. Beautifully packaged, Le Sommelier makes a wonderful gift for the holidays or other special occasions for that loved one who deserves only the best.

Available in: Juniper with Satin Finish and Thuya with Satin Finish.

Handmade Wine-Infused Soaps


For those interested in enjoying wine's properties other than its bouquet and taste, the Spindrift Soap Company brings you just the thing--soaps infused with a variety of popular New England wines.

Why wine? In a search for all natural ingredients to provide a healthy and moisturizing base for his handmade soaps, Spindrift Soap Company founder Colby Field discovered that the anti-oxidant quercetin found in grapes, along with flavanoids, nourishing minerals and vitamins, was just the thing. Released by the soap during use, these ingredients moisturize and soothe even the driest and most sensitive skin, and the wine's natural sugars also create a great lather. To top it off, the natural aromas of the four wines used in the Spindrift soaps in our exclusive collection--Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio--are a treat for the nose as well as the skin.

Packaged in a box of four 4.2 oz. bars, Spindrift wine soaps make great stocking stuffers for four loved ones, or to give as a set to the wine-loving enthusiast on your gift list.
