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)  This week on Northwest Wine Radio, we explore how a really good wine created?  Well, when a mommy wine and a daddy wine love each other very much, of course!  Actually, there's a better story about the family behind Armstrong Family Winery in Walla Walla, and you'll certainly enjoy it.

Next, we introduce you to a really good cook.  We mean, REALLY good.  This guy has become very popular in the Eugene-area for his southern cuisine...and his beer.  We meet the chef-turned-brewer behind Elk Horn Brewing, and promise you'll likely be very hungry after hearing this story!

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 the "Wine Moms" will have a wine recommendation.

(2018)  Our first stop this week on Northwest Wine Radio is Washington's Puget Sound region, home to EFESTE' Wines of Woodinville.  We learn the story behind the name, as well as the story of it's winemaker....who actually began his adult life on the PGA tour!

Then we're headed to central Oregon to explore one of the hottest beverages today in the Northwest, yet it's been around for centuries.  Ever wondered what exactly is kombucha?  We learn the story behind Humm Kombucha of Bend, and figure out how this drink fits into the Northwest's craft beverage scene.

(2018 - Season 5 Premiere)  We begin our 5th year on the radio with some good wine, and maybe a teeny-tiny bit of scandal.  After all, we're going to reveal the true story of how Sweet Cheeks Winery in Eugene got it's name.  We have some great laughs with the family that started this unique southern Willamette Valley operation.

Ever heard of Schilling Spices?  From the same family that brought you cinnamon and nutmeg for decades comes Seattle-based Schilling Cider.  We'll hear their story, and find out what's behind some of their unique flavor combinations.
