Tastevin Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin
This lovely French Silver plated Tastevin is complete with its ribbon and belonged to a member of the French Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin – Brotherhood of Tastevin Knights.

It weighs 84 grms, the ribbon is 47 cm long and has a width of 4 cm. What a unique gift for the wine lovers! Postage from France included.
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.
