Hospitality industry veterans, Max Trujillo and Matthew Weiss, get behind the scenes of North Carolina's burgeoning food and beverage culture. Hear from local chefs, sommelier's, distillers, farmers, brewers and the whole lot of them in the NC F&B podcast. 

"Our intention is to create a behind-the-scenes conversation between industry professionals. Whether we are speaking with an advanced level sommelier about their wine program or a chef about breaking down an entire pig, we just want the conversation to be real, unedited and honest. The food and beverage world is a unique industry, and North Carolina's food scene is growing everyday.

Take a listen. We hope to entertain, teach and inspire while offering some specific information about the NC food scene."

Episode 65 - Maximilian Kast of Broadbent Selections Journey from Montana to Pittsboro North Carolina with Advanced Sommelier Maximillian Kast. Max enlightens the NC F&B Pod on what it’s like to work at the 5 diamond Forbes award winning property, the Fearrington House. Max also shared why he chose to leave the Fearrington house after 10 years and go to the “dark side,” AKA sales and marketing side of wines with Broadbent Selections. We also get a glimpse of what it’s like to sit for the Master Sommelier exam as we blind taste through six wines with Max. In the tasting we find out how a Master Sommelier candidate dissects a glass of wine and uses deductive reasoning to “suss” out its origins. Finally, Max and Matt are also put to the test in this episode in order to find out their blind tasting prowess. Listen and taste with us while we schmooze and sip with Max Kast.
