What is a Tastevin?
A historic tool used in wine making and wine tasting, the Tastevin is a small, metal 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.
