About

Harvey Steiman joined Wine Spectator as managing editor in 1983, and later became editor at large. His tasting beats have included Australia, New Zealand, Oregon and Washington, and his Wine Spectator writings often focused on food, restaurants and travel. Steiman retired in 2019.

Steiman began writing about food and wine 1973, when he started covering the subject for the Miami Herald. In 1977, he became food and wine editor of the San Francisco Examiner. From 1982 to 1993 he hosted In the Kitchen with Harvey, a radio 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. He published Wine Spectator's Essentials of Wine, a guide to the basics, 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.
