Take Me Out To The Tasting Room

Take Me Out To The Tasting Room
Premium wines are a home run at ball parks nationwide

baseballBaseball season is in full swing, which means fans can wash down their peanuts and hot dogs with the perfect pairing: wine.

Like high-quality craft beer, wine has made a splash at ball parks around the country. Boston Red Sox fans at Fenway Park enjoy smooth red blends and chardonnay from Napa Valley, while patrons in premium seats sit back with sips of Opus One and Stags’ Leap wines.

Those with premium seats at PNC Park, the ball park for the Pittsburgh Pirates, enjoy their high-end wines in glass stemware while fans at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners, drink reds and whites from tiny, 6-ounce plastic bottles. And if you root for the San Diego Padres’ at PETCO Park, you can select from more than 40 wines by the glass at the park’s Wine Steals and Proper Gastropub.

Naturally, with its proximity to multiple wine-growing regions, it’s no wonder AT&T Park in San Francisco has one of the most extensive ball park wine lists including Rosenblum Cellars, Vinum Vineyards, and Borgo Magredo. Season-ticket holders even benefit from a once-a-month tasting of Signorello Estate’s cabernet sauvignon.


What's your favorite wine to sip at the ball park? Tell us below.
