Northwest Wine Radio

Wine Should be Fun! Northwest Wine Radio is a weekly, hour-long show broadcast on radio stations across the Pacific Northwest. Not your typical wine show, Northwest Wine Radio features interviews with the winemakers, brewers, distillers, and cider makers to get the fun stories behind the bottle. No technical talking here; we're sharing real stories about the real people in the industry. Grab a glass of your favorite and tune in for fun stories, food pairing suggestions, news about upcoming events...all without the attitude! Host Brian Calvert and his team present a different kind of wine show: Light, fun, informal, yet informative and relevant to anyone who drinks local and supports local producers. Again, this show celebrates an entire industry of producers who make fantastic products right here in our own backyard. More information: NorthwestWineRadio.com

If you're up on your geography, you know that when we refer to the "Pacific Northwest," we're generally talking about Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia.  So, it may surprise you we're going to Maui this week!  On a recent trip, we discovered Maui Wines, and the incredible story of how they are growing wine grapes against all the odds.

Then, we're definitely back in the Northwest to share the story of the father-son team behind Granville Wines.  Allen and Jackson Holstein join us!

The Jolly Green Giant, Ronald McDonald, and the Geico Gecko all seemed to work, so why note create a new mascot for beer?  That's just what they did at Orlison Brewing, and you'll laugh along with us as we share how "Orlison" was created.

And then, what do you do when you want to name your winery after yourself, only to find out your name's meaning isn't the most flattering?  You do what they did at Truth Teller Winery, and you use a little fun creativity to come up with the perfect compliment to some really delicious wine!
