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

No joke: A historic operation.

On this episode, we take you deep inside Barrister Winery in Spokane, and share the story of how two local attorneys channeled their love for wine into this unique operation inside a historic location.  We also catch-up with families behind Pearl and Stone Wine Company of North Bend, then we go out for a beer in Bend and learn the history of Cascade Lakes Brewing.

(2019)  What happens when you buy a wine operation with a stellar reputation and set your sights on the future?

Then what happens when you buy a SECOND winery?

We get a chance to meet the new owners of some long time wine operations, and hear the story of what's next for these two Woodinville stalwarts under the new Tinte Cellars label. Then, we head out to the Snoqualmie Valley to find out more about the region's newest group of wineries, and how they're marketing a unique experience.  The episode ends with a visit to central Oregon, where a cider favorite has been forced to change its name from Atlas to Avid Cider.

(2019)  In some parts of the Pacific Northwest, its just not very easy to grow wine grapes.  Specifically, western Washington just isn't the place you find a lot of vineyards.

Until you look very closely.

This week, we feature to story of Skagit Crest Vineyard & Winery of La Conner, Washington.  We find out how a couple found a way to live and make wine close to home!  Then we travel to the most eastern part of Washington to meet some brewers who have really gone to the dogs.  There's plenty of evidence when you hear the names of some of the beers at English Setter Brewery in Spokane Valley.
