  • I can't remember the last time I saw a restaurant somm with a tastevin. Except on a cruise ship.  As recently as 2011 I saw tastevins around the necks of somms orbiting around the restaurants and dining rooms on a Princess cruise.  I have been on multiple Princess cruises since then, and, not only are the tastevins gone, but the somms are gone a...

  • So D - the function is an interesting topic. In fact, it could be an interesting article to write, were one so inclined - the changes in wine appreciation over the past forty years. I enjoy reading wine books from the 1970s and earlier just to see what people were focused on at those times.So the tastevin obviously isn't a great way to smell win... Read More

  • If unlike Vino's the silver is polished, then the tastevin will provide better view of the wine's hues under low light circumstances then murky old glass, Greg. Any light in the environment will flash off the silver.How many times have you viewed or participated in spills from those old 'coup' sparkling glasses? Only good for those pyramid winef...

  • Greg, would sometimes see them into the '80s, too, even in cellars but more commonly around the neck of somms at places like Maxim's or others in the context you refer to. By the gaslight reference in my earlier post I was talking about the last of their true working functionality, as opposed to their use as a fashion accessory for the entitled ... Read More

  • So D - do you remember going to restaurants and seeing the somm with one of these around his or her neck? I do. Back in the late 1970s I would go to various restaurants with my girlfriend of the day. We were kids and each week we'd pick one of the "best" restaurants in the city to go to, but we went to one in particular very often. At that place... Read More

  • Tastevins served their place back in the days before electricity, when winemakers and cellarmasters could use a thief or other to rob from the barrel and place into the shallow silver cup, and the professional eye could judge what needed to be judged by the reflection of fire-based light off the silver through the small amount of wine. Then tast... Read More

  • Alright, for all those who have been bad mouthing Merlot over the past few years, please stand up. Now all of you need to walk over to the far corner of the room and wait. Thank you. I need to tell you that your dislike of Merlot is unfounded and I am about to prove that Merlot is the number one outstanding citizen of the wine community. I mean,... Read More

  • I have a confession to make publicly. I am a Yeast Wrangler. In every fermentation, every harvest, I try to get inside the minds of these tiny fungi and discern what they want to eat, how they would like to be treated, and what temperature they would like their environment to be. They make the wine and winemakers try to keep them happy. They are... Read More
