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)  The homestead has been in the family since the early 1900's.  Today, the newest generation of Williamsons (a really fun bunch) are still producing quality fruit and delicious wine from Williamson Vineyards in Caldwell.

Then, we're off on a field trip to Hawaii's Big Island.  Up among the lava rocks left behind by Mount Kilauea, you'll find the very unique Volcano Winery.  Not only are they producing Pinot Noir and fine mead, but they're into tea leaves as well.  It's a great place to visit when Northwesterners take a trip to the islands!

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)  Sure they make Syrah, but that wine made from other fruit is pretty tasty as well!  We get a true taste of Oregon's Umpqua River Valley with a visit from HV Cellars of Winston, where the winemaker can't resist fermenting things other than grapes.

Our friend from the Washington Beer Commission stops by to talk about a really fun open house event for raft beer lovers, then we learn more about the art of blending when the namesake of Brian Carter Cellars stops by for a visit.

(2018)  Some winemakers get really lucky, and have a chance to learn their craft from some of the best in the business.  The winemaker at Goose Ridge Vineyards recalls the great advice that led him to the Tri-Cities, where he puts that advice in every bottle.

If you like to make craft beer at home, or are interested in learning, our new friends from the Cascade Home Brewers Guild stop by with some tips, some warnings, and a lot of great laughs!
