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

(2019)  How many hats do you wear?  As we've come to know, winemakers wear several hats.  And at this place, they take their wine...and their hats...seriously.

On this episode, we learn the story behind Nine Hats Wines of Seattle.  This is a family operation, but the story is more like the Prodigal Son who goes away, only to eventually find his way back.  We also visit the Newberg area of Oregon to learn the story behind Utopia Vineyard, a certified sustainable operation run by a guy who's first career was in the Silicon Valley.

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.

(2019)  Make sure you're ready to celebrate all things Irish as you listen to this week's show, but don't worry, we've already kissed the Blarney Stone for you!

On a recent trip to Ireland, host Brian Calvert and "Director Drew" met the crew from Killarney Brewing Company and learned more about the craft beer scene overseas.  We saved this story to share on Saint Patrick's Day, as you'll love the Irish accents telling this story!  We'll also meet the local winemakers making a go of things in Duvall, Washington, where they're currently the only winery in town.  You'll love meeting the couple behind Cherry Valley Wines.

(2019)  Southern Oregon is booming when it comes to vineyards.  There's so much activity, it's spreading towards the coast...which is where we find this week's guests.

On this episode, we take you to where the Umpqua River Valley meets the Oregon Coastal Range for the story behind Brandborg Vineyards & Winery.  It's the tale of a winemaker who's blazed quite a trail through this country, finally landing in Elkton where he's built a renowned facility.  Then, we're off to Newberg to the home of Nicolas-Jay wines for the story of how a lady and two gentlemen have staked their own claim in the Willamette Valley.

(2019)  Every now and then we take you some place unexpected for a real treat, and this week's show is definitely in this category. 

Last month, we visited the Hawaiian Island of Kauai for the first time, and got a chance to meet a local producer who makes something a little different.  What do you know about mead?  On this episode, we meet the islanders behind Nani Moon Meadery, where we learn mead isn't as sweet as you might expect.
