We all know what a “tastevin” is since Shark Tank Episode 19 Season 5 and Mr. Wonderful – Kevin O´Leary extensively talking about polishing his. If you still don´t know what a Testavin is: : Its a silver cup attached to a lanyard used for wine tasting.
Mr. Wonderful and a bunch of his wine loving friends have a “tastevin” hanging around their necks when they go to their “Chevalier du Tastevin”- wine tasting meetings. “Chevalier du Testavin ? Yes, in short: A bunch of wealthy guys meeting every now and then and tasting old and expensive wines in their own little wine tasting cups.
What´s so special about that ? Not much.
But hold on: There is a story here.
Remember the “Brain Rules” by John Medina ? In the chapter about vision he cites an experiment by the University of Bordeaux. In this experiment they asked wine experts to taste different red wines. But some of those wines were actually white wines with red dye. The experts were fooled by their vision and couldn´t distinguish a white from a red. What does that tell us ? Well, you might just as well just buy any other regular bottle of wine off the shelf and really don´t need to apply for membership to the “Chevalier du Tastevin”.
So why does Kevin O´Leary do this ? Well, for entertainment probably. Hanging with a few other wine geeks, having your own cup and putting some effort into polishing it. It makes them feel special – nothing bad about that. A bit old fashioned maybe…but hey.
But wait: There´s a better way to do that.
And it´s called “Trinkfreund” . The word “Trinkfreund” probably doesn´t need a translation and it doesn´t need polishing either !!!
Trinkfreund is made of a unique mix of materials, extremely flexible, durable and not only holds wine cups, but drink glasses, bottles and cans aswell. The “Trinkfreund” received a red dot award and well surpasses many other bottle holders in form and function.
Having said that, I have to admit though, that we do NOT sell the “Trinkfreund”. It is made in Germany and sold by it´s inventors. But its cooler than a Tastevin, so I thought I should mention it,
But wait: That´s not all !
What we do sell though are Lanyards ! That brings us back to the beginning of the story. Lanyards are the perfect product to keep your hands free during all kinds of occasions, polishing stuff and so on. You can attach a “taste-a-vin”, a “Trinkfreund” and a huge range of other products to your Lanyard.
So, the Lanyard is the true hero in this story!
Thank you for pointing that out Mr. Wonderful.
Now, if you need lanyards, look no further ! We have you covered, right here on ProLanyardDirect.com
