As the tools of toiling writers, the pen and bottle have enjoyed a long, and oftentimes fruitful, relationship. Perhaps in acknowledgment of this collaborative effort, penmaker Montblanc (800.995.4810, www.montblanc.com) has composed a new collection of wine accessories. The Sommelier Corkscrew ($260) is the line’s centerpiece, a diminutive wine opener with an inlaid wood handle and a stainless steel finish. The Montblanc Wine Stopper ($125) seals your liquid stimulus, while the Drip Stop ($70), a convenient device that slips onto any size bottle, ensures that your masterwork remains stain-free.
