Inside Text: From the Vine... The wine-tasting ritual goes back to the days of kings, when royal tasters had to sample wine to make sure it did not contain poison before it was served to the king and his table. Today's royal tasters are called sommeliers, which is the French word for wine steward. In better restaurants, the sommelier may wear a chain with a little cup at the end of it. The cup is called a tastevin and is used by the sommelier to taste the wine for you.
