Just as a wine key is an elegant and easy way to open up a bottle of wine, the Wine Key cottage at our bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg, TX blends convenience and class. Inspired by the innovation and history of the wine key, the Wine Key cottage encompasses the vintage feel and rustic charm of Texas wine country.
While the exact origin of wine keys is unknown, they are assumed to have originated from gunsmiths, who derived them from gun worms, which were used to remove jammed bullets from rifles. The rise of new glass blowing technology in the 18th century led to the modern innovation of wine corks. Bottles could be constructed into its conventional, skinny shape, which has allowed winemakers to seal and age their wine.
