This week we explore part of the Northwest getting more and more of a reputation for delicious wine. Winemaker Lynzee Schatz hosts us for a special visit to Vancouver Wine Company, and explains what makes her wine a little different.
Does having "innocent" in your name make your wine "innocent?" Listen to how Mark Vlossak of Oregon's St Innocent Winery tells his story, and make your own call. And we learn a little more about the wine varietal known as Mourvedre.
Do you think you can taste the difference? Ryan Harms of Union Wine Company bets you cannot, and sales of his wine in a can is proof.
Speaking of Proof, we'll tell you about the event bearing that name the celebrates Washington's craft distilleries. Then Darryl Joannides of Viola Wine Cellars shares the interesting story behind his wine's name, and his way of wine making.
She works her way from the lab to the position of "winemaker" in just a few years. We have a really enlightening conversation with winemaker Emily Hanes, and she's handed the keys to Butch's place, as in Butch Milbrandt Vineyards of Prosser.
Making money on wine takes plenty of time, so a couple of entrepreneurs outside of Salem, Oregon pool their resources to create a wine experience. We meet the family behind Zenith Vineyards.
On this week's show, the crew from Woodinville's Alexandria Nicole Cellars stops by to share their story, their castle, and the unique stories overheard in the tasting room.
Our friend Eric Radovich from the Washington Beer Commission also pays a visit to remind us that we better not have plans for Fathers Day yet. He has a personal invitation to this year's Washington Brewers Festival.
And Dallas, Oregon's favorite Frenchman drops by to share the story of Van Duzer Vineyards.
