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)  It's one thing to produce some really good wine in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  These people also make their own cheese, meats, and the homemade crackers are to die for!

We're on the road this week to Oregon's Applegate Valley, where we meet the couple behind Wooldridge Creek Winery and Wooldridge Creek VinFarm.  These two do it all, offering a fantastic experience in a gorgeous setting.  Then, we drive north of the border to sample the unique offerings of Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver, British Columbia.  If you've ever had trouble with names, you'll certainly appreciate their story!

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)  His Canadian up-bringing exposed him to wine, but Washington is where he's perfected his craft.

On this week's show, we meet the people behind Cadaretta Winery and Southwind Vineyard on Walla Walla.  There's a great story behind the name on the label, as well as what goes into the bottle!  Then we're off on a field trip to historic Granville Island in Vancouver B.C., the home of The Liberty Distillery.  It's our first experience inside a distillery where they're allowed to serve cocktails.

(2019)  We definitely have some wine to talk about this week, but we also have some delicious beer that requires a little "island hopping."

On a recent trip to Kauai, host Brian Calvert and "Director Drew" met the crew from Kauai Beer Company and learned more about the craft beer scene on the small Hawaiian island.  But before we escape to paradise, it's time to go to wine school, as we check out the program at College Cellars in Walla Walla.  This program is producing some really great winemakers!

(2019) When he first arrived on the scene, Woodinville was home to a handful of wineries, and there were about 100 total in Washington.

Over the past three decades, his presence in the industry has grown right alongside the industry itself.  On this episode, we meet the winemaker and learn more of the story behind Patterson Cellars.  We also catch-up with a winemaker who's balaning his love for making wine, with his passion for opening a bed and breakfast.  There are good things ahead for Fivash Cellars.  Then, we head out to the Kitsap Penninsula and check out the cider production happening at Finn River Farms and Cidery.
