Harvey Steiman

Editor at Large, San Francisco
Tasting Beat: At large

About

Harvey Steiman joined Wine Spectator as managing editor in 1983, and later served as executive editor before taking on his present role of editor at large. His tasting beats have included Australia, New Zealand, Oregon and Washington, and his Wine Spectator writings often focus on food, restaurants and travel.

Steiman has been writing about wine and food since 1973, when he started covering the subject for the Miami Herald. In 1977, he became food and wine editor of the San Francisco Examiner. He was once a jazz disc jockey, and from 1982 to 1993 hosted In the Kitchen with Harvey, a talk show on KCBS and later KNBR in San Francisco. A book of recipes from that program, Harvey Steiman's California Kitchen, was published in 1990. His most recent book, Wine Spectator's Essentials of Wine, a guide to the basics, was published in 2000.

Steiman lives in San Francisco with his wife, Carol, where they frequent opera, symphony and jazz events. They are also avid travelers and, from April to October, live and die with the San Francisco Giants.
