Years of Participation


Keith Beavers is the Tastings Director at VinePair and the host of VinePair’s Wine 101 podcast. He previously owned the In Vino Restaurant and Wine Bar and Alphabet City Wine Company wine shop in New York, where his stewardship was the subject of a New York Times profile in 2010. He is a self taught wine professional and has been an educator since his time in the hospitality industry. His passion for teaching shines through in the Wine 101 podcast, now in its fourth season, and the show consistently ranks among the top food and drink podcasts in Apple’s U.S. chart. Keith’s enthusiastic approach to wine education is mirrored in the manner in which he conducts wine reviews and leads in-person seminars. Thoughtful, unbiased, and always eager to explore new regions, grapes, and styles, he is a champion of all wine, though a decade spent running an Italian restaurant and wine bar cemented his expertise in that field. He strives to share wine with the masses, eliminate pretension, and highlight the fun that can be found in this ancient wonder. He has been a part of the VinePair team since the publication’s inception.
