What is a Tastevin?
Tastevins are shallow, often dimpled, cups used for tasting by professionals. These flat bottomed shallow cups, which are often worn on a ribbon around the neck, originated in Burgundy where professional wine tasters came to the general agreement that it was easier to judge the color of a red wine when it was poured in a shallow layer over the brightly reflecting silver rather than in a glass where it sat in a greater mass. So popular were such implements during the 17th and 18th centuries that even today they remain the acknowledged ceremonial symbol of Burgundy.
