What is a Tastevin?
A historic tool used in wine making and wine tasting, the Tastevin is a small, silver cup or saucer. The cup has traditionally been used to assess the color, clarity, and maturity of wine.
In ancient times, without the advent of modern lighting, a special shallow cup was required to accurately view and judge wine. Each little bowl was multifaceted, allowing light to reflect the visual properties of the wine.
