MLB’s 1st Master Sommelier – And Your Wine ?s Answered! Evan Goldstein, Ep. 68

Summer is here, and we’re celebrating Americia’s pastime, baseball! When you get to the ballpark, you’re most likely eating hotdogs and drinking a cold beer. But our guest and friend of the pod, Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein, wants you to change up your game and try swirling and sipping a glass of wine instead. He’s Major League Baseball’s first team Master Sommelier, and Evan’s joined the roster of his beloved San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park.

The Marys are thrilled to welcome Evan to Sip Sip Hooray for a second time at bat. He’s back by popular demand! He’ll give us the scoop on the lineup of wines to pair with baseball and stadium food. Plus, he’s answering wine questions that you, our listeners, have always wanted to ask a somm.

Part of Evan’s role on the team is to help educate fans thirsty for knowledge and new wine experiences. He’s been a great educator throughout his impressive wine career, which includes stats such as being the youngest person to pass the Master Sommelier exam when he was 26. He’s written three books – Perfect Pairings: A Master Sommelier’s Practical Advice for Partnering Wine with Food, Daring Pairings: A Master Sommelier Matches Distinctive Wines with Recipes from His Favorite Chefs and Wines of South America: The Essential Guide.

Evan also co-founded Master The World, to help train palates of aspiring  wine professionals and wine drinkers everywhere, through innovative tasting kits and webinars.
