Hello Evan, thanks for being here on CorkRules, - a podcast where we help simplify and demystify the wine lists at some of our favorite restaurants, wine bars and now venues. We talk with certified sommeliers, wine/food professionals who point out interesting bottles, classic food and wine pairings, hidden gems,  value wines, or splurge wines that will take your our experience over the top.

EG: Thank you so excited to be here.

RT: Evan, I’m super excited to be talking today given your wine chops but want to start with learning a little more about you and how you ended up being the somm for SF Giants?

EG: (How did it come about, what else do you do in the business, fun fact, etc.)
