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

In this episode, we meet a couple of women who have made names for themselves here in the Northwest.  First, Kerry Shiels of Cote Bonneville stops by with how she makes some really delicious bottles of wine.  Then, Tami Joyce & Jen Akin of Seattle Distilling Company join us...we haven't had this much fun at the bar in a long time!

We also get a chance to meet Brad Binko of Eternal Wines, where the slogan is "Drink Wine, Be Happy."  We can certainly live by that motto!

When a Frenchman comes on to your show, you'd better listen, especially when he proclaims "Rieslings Rule!"  Winemaker Nicolas Quille of Pacific Rim Wines joins us.  Then, the team from Nicolas Jay Wines based in Newberg, Oregon explains how to make great wine from a female perspective.

And then, we're off to make your next experience with craft beer even better.  The guys from the Washington Beer Awards stop by with some tips on enjoying your brew even more, as well as the deadline for their awards this year.

You're a founding winemaker of an entire region, and now it's time to hand over the reigns.  Master of Wine Bob Betz of Betz Family Winery is turning things over to winemaker Louis Skinner, and the pair join us with how they're making the transition of a lifetime.

Did you know there's an entire organization solely to promote Northwest-made cider?  We'll meet it's director, Emily Richie, and then we meet some Oregon winemakers who've moved not once, but four times.  And it was all to make Fullerton Wines what it is today!

What's in a name?  If you pick the right name, A LOT!  Just ask the people behind Naked Winery in Hood River.  You'll love their story, and why they chose to go a little risque in order to make wine approachable for everyone.

And wine can certainly be a family affair!  We meet the Kitzke family, and find out who does what to make all the great wine at Kitzke Cellars.
