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)  Every fall presents a challenge for our show.  It's harvest time, which means the people who are normally guests, are busy in the vineyards.  Since we taped this show during harvest, we thought it might be fun to do something a little different.

For the first time ever on Northwest Wine Radio, we're going back to school.  We're spending the entire show with the people behind NW Wine Academy, which is headquartered at South Seattle College.  We take an in-depth look into their program, and even get a chance to meet students working towards their certificate.

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)  This week's show is a "trifecta" in the adult beverage world, featuring stories of wine, beer, and spirits. 

Not every brewer strikes gold in the first year.  Then again, the guys behind Yakima's Single Hill Brewing aren't just any brewers.  You'll definitely enjoy the story of their beer, as well as their "good vibes" philosophy.  Speaking of first time victories, we meet the winemaker behind Oregon's King Estate, and find out it's his first job as a winemaker.  It's amazing when you consider the accolades he's won! 

Then, we get a chance to sit down with the man behind Pacific Distillery of Woodinville, and learn a little about absinthe...and the correct way to sip it!

(2018)  It's just about that time of year when the gray skies and the rain make Hawaii sounds really tempting.  Well, one of our guests this week brings the magic of the islands to his wine.  We meet up with the people behind Freed Estate Winery in Winston, and find out how Hawaii influences every bottle they fill

But first, we sit down with the ladies from Adrice Wines of Woodinville.  They both come from different backgrounds, but found some common ground in good wine.  Then, if you're hoping for a "winery wedding," we have the chance to sit down with the people behind central Oregon's Faith Hope & Charity Vineyards and talk about what it takes for a truly memorable event.
