Definizione

A glass tube used to extract wine from a barrel. 1

Nota

It is simply a long pipette style glass tube. You dunk the end of the tube into the brew and then you seal the top end of it with your thumb. Then you can pull it out and when you release your thumb the captured wine will pour into your container of choice. 2

Contesto

Draw a sample of "clean" must or wine with the wine thief - avoid testing samples that contain solid particles, since this will affect the readings. 3

Etimologia

Wine = O.E. win, from P.Gmc. *winam, an early borrowing from L. vinum "wine," from PIE *win-o-, from an Italic noun related to words for "wine" in Gk. (oinos), Armenian, Hittite, and non-I.E. Georgian and West Semitic (cf. Arabic wain, Heb. yayin), probably from a lost Mediterranean language word *win-/*woin- "wine."

Thief = O.E. þeof, from P.Gmc. *theubaz (cf. O.Fris. thiaf, O.S. thiof, M.Du. dief, O.H.G. diob, Ger. dieb, O.N. þiofr, Goth. þiufs), probably from PIE *teup- (cf. Lith. tupeti "to crouch down"). 4
