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 life changed.

This week, we feature to story of Triple Oak Vineyard of Oakland, Oregon, and the circumstances that left a widow to fulfill the dreams of her late husband.  It's an inspiring story that has an ending you'll raise a glass to!  Then, we're off Walla Walla, where we meet the rock star behind Eternal Wines and the Drink Washington State label.  Just the stories behind the names are fascinating.  Wait until you hear how and why he makes the wine!

(2019)  Did you have any idea there was a matchmaking service for wine grapes?  We met one on today's show!

The mother-daughter team at Kendall Farms used to grow wine grapes and make wine.  They still do today, but the focus on the business is to make sure no Northwest grape goes to waste.  Then we head to Oregon's Willamette Valley to meet the man behind William Rose Wines.  You'll love his accent, and his quest to help other budding winemakers through something called Oregon Wine Lab.

(2019)  One of Oregon's prized valleys for wine has a new AVA...because the grapes are definitely different there.

The man who began Rivers Edge Winery in Elkton stops by to share his winery's story, as well as what made his region of wine country deserve it's own distinction.  Then we're off to central Oregon to meet a bartender who had tasted plenty of good spirits, then decided to make his own.  It's really fun learning about Oregon Spirits Distillery in Bend, and their line-up of unique products.

The people behind Fletcher Bay Winery on Bainbridge Island stop by to talk about how they do what they do...as well as the others now making wine on the popular Washington island.   Then we head south to Oregon's Willamette Valley to learn the story behind Wildcraft Cider Works.  This popular operation in Eugene does some really interesting things with fruit!
