“Upon arriving in Dijon a couple of hours later, they checked in at the Hotel Terminus, where their room, like every room in the hotel was outfitted with wine faucets, one for red and one for white, in the bathroom. It was a marketing gimmick, meant to promote the hotel and the local wine. Hanging beside the faucets was a silver pair of silver tastevins—wine tasting cups. The wine was on the house, according to the small sign, and it really wasn’t bad.” – Provence, 1970 – M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste by Luke Barr.
