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

Then, we meet the "bros" from Central Washington who have turned theor town upside down with some really good craft brewing.  You'll enjoy the story of how Iron Horse Brewery has grown so much, putting Ellensburg on the brewery map!

(2018)  Nothing beats good, locally made beer and a great story!  This week, you get both as we share the history and art that inspired the beer AND the name of Wingman Brewers in Tacoma.

We also meet the wine maker behind the Alder Ridge Cellars label.  His work in Prosser includes work on another label, so we ask about what it takes to ensure each one of his wines gets enough attention.

(2018) There are matches made in heaven, and then there are matches made in a wine barrel.

Such is the case with the couple behind Washington's Barrage Cellars. They share their story of balance life, love, and grapes as we get a taste of the bold fruits of their labor.  Then, we visit with the brothers who are bottling over at Sun Liquor Distillery.  Their passion for making spirits is clear!
