Yes, baseball is back! The dream of your team making it to the World Series is renewed and maybe it’s finally ‘next year’ for the Chicago Cubs (Eh, probably not). And as soon as those words, ‘Play ball!’ are yelled, the smell of fresh cut grass, hot dogs and stale beer will come racing back into our lives.
How about the smell of blackberries, caramel and smoke? Yes, I am talking about the aromas of wine and at a baseball park nonetheless. Wine lovers can finally rejoice! Because now you will start to hear ‘Get your wine here!’ from vendors walking around the park. As baseball parks amp up their food selection serving steak sandwiches, fried calamari and sushi, it just seems fitting to add wine to their venues too.
According to the Associated Press, Aramark, which runs the food and beverage service at Fenway Park, picks its wine carefully. By getting the inside scope of industry trends and running in-depth tasting sessions, they are now serving hot varietals like malbec and moscato along with the usual cabernets and chardonnays.
AT&T park of the San Francisco Giants, Citi Field of the NY Mets, Safeco Field of the Seattle Mariners, and Tropicana Field of the Tampa Bay Rays are some of the other stadiums going along with this great new trend. So Vino fans time to buy your tickets and relax as you watch America’s greatest pastime while sipping on the juice of your choice, cheers!
