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

(2018)  On this episode, we meet a winemaker with a true passion for both his wine, and the land that yields it.  We take you to the heart of the Walla Walla Valley for the story behind Gifford Hirlinger, and the young family making a great go of it.

Then we take a road trip to Garden City, Idaho, to meet one of the only cider makers in the area.  Wait til you hear what kind of effort it takes to make the great products at Meriwether Cider Company.  We then swing over to Oregon and enjoy the story behind Sno Road Winery...the first winery in Echo.

Join host Brian Calvert for 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 Idaho Wine presents "Bites and Bottles," a fun food pairing with wine, craft beer, and spirits featuring Chef Kathy Casey.

(2018)  Who needs fancy, city-slicker conveniences like electricity and automobiles, when you can use people-power and horsepower to make you wine?  That's the philosophy at Illahe Cellars in Dallas, home of "1899," the wine made and delivered by hand, foot, and canoe.

And who says winemakers aren't funny?  A former engineer and funnyman tries his hand at wine, and the result is delicious!  We'll meet the siblings behind Long Cellars of Woodinville.

(2018)  There are several things that can influence your wine experience.  There's taste, smell, and then there's what your eyes take in.  We mention all this, because the wine experience at JM Cellars is the total package:  Great wine, good people, and it's located inside an actual arboretum. 

In this episode, we also gather around the stove for some delicious craft beer.  The guys from Old Stove Brewing stop in to share their story, and announce their new location in the heart of one of the Northwest's biggest attractions.
