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

(2017)  We take the show on the road this week, making stops in Salem, Walla Walla, and Boise! 

While in Idaho, we meet the family behind Fujishin Family Cellars, and learn about their unique approach to wine-making AND working together as a family.  Then, we're off to Walla Walla to meet the people at Tempus Cellars, which is there to greet people as they get off the plane.  We'll learn more about this operation, located at the airport.  And finally, our road trip concludes in Salem, home to Gilgamesh Brewing, where we meet the family helping putting Oregon's capital city on the craft brewing map.

All this, plus Master of Wine Bob Betz of Betz Family Winery stops by to answer our wine questions, Justin Stiefel of Heritage Distilling Company mixes-up our "Drink of the Week." and Chef Kathy Casey joins us with a fun food pairing featuring wine, craft beer, and spirits!

(2017) When you go out to eat, do you ever order the house wine?  Winemaker Hal Landvoight is hoping you do, after all, that's the name of his wine.  We'll get the full story behind his unique marketing, and learn about House Wine's new vessel.

Pairing wine and food can be fun, and it can also be a challenge.  We'll meet local chef who's new product Chef Anne Maries Tasting Chips is becoming a huge hit in tasting rooms across the region.  We'll also spend time getting to know the gang at Sumerian Brewing, the brewery who's head brewer used to be a winemaker!

(2017)  You're given the keys to the Cadillac AND the Lincoln, which one do you enjoy driving more?  Winemaker John Freeman tells us "neither" as he shares his adventures of creating delicious wine for both Waterbrook Winery AND Browne Family Vineyards, without picking a favorite!

We also get to meet the team that makes some great craft beer in the shadow of a very popular attraction.  The gang from Snoqualmie Falls Brewing Company shares their story, including a name for one of their beers that might cause your inner "12 year old" to laugh out loud.
