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

We begin this week's show by taking a moment to celebrate our 250th episode.  A big thank you to all our sponsors who make this possible, and a special thanks to YOU for listening to the show.  We have 6 seasons under our belt, and are preparing for our 7th and BIGGEST season yet!

On this episode, we head out to Bainbridge Island to check out the "island wine scene," and share the story behind Fletcher Bay Winery.  We also spend some time in the Willamette Valley getting to know the people and the process behind Wildcraft Cider Works.
