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)  Sometimes, the person in charge of writing "titles" for the show gets a little too creative.  However, it IS true this episode features both cephalopods and train stations.

First, we sit down with one of Washington's female winemakers to get the story behind her two labels:  Cote Bonneville and Train Station.  Both are based in the Yakima Valley.  Then, we're back to Seattle for the fascinating story behind Mollusk Brewing.  They do things a little differently there!  We finally round things out in Idaho to meet the family that runs Fujitsun Cellars.

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)  Who are we kidding?  There's no place like Bend, Oregon. But as you're about to find out, just because the name says "Bend" doesn't mean that's the entire story.

This becomes much more clear as we sit down with the people behind Bend Distillery and learn more about their line of fine spirits AND that it wasn't named after the city.  Before we take you down this snowy road, we'll learn the story of Milbrandt Vineyards in Washington's Yakima Valley.  They have something special in the middle of all those Yakima hops!

(2018)  Maybe you're reading the title of this week's show and thinking "what?"  Well, we were just trying to be clever with the names of our guests.

First, we sit down with the people behind Eugene's Noble Estate Vineyard & Winery, and learn how this operation out in the country has become a major player in Willamette Valley wine.  Next, we head east over the Cascades to Bend to hear the story of Monkless Belgian Ales.  The guy behind this operation had made beer for friends for years.  One day, someone challenged him to "go pro," and he hasn't looked back since!
