Northwest Wine Radio – “Umpqua Wine Has Ummph!” (ep193)


(2018)  Sure they make Syrah, but that wine made from other fruit is pretty tasty as well!  We get a true taste of Oregon’s Umpqua River Valley with a visit from HV Cellars of Winston, where the winemaker can’t resist fermenting things other than grapes.

Our friend from the Washington Beer Commission stops by to talk about a really fun open house event for craft beer lovers, then we learn more about the art of blending when the namesake of Brian Carter Cellars stops by for a visit.

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 Idaho Wine presents “Bites and Bottles,” a fun food pairing with wine, craft beer, and spirits featuring Chef Kathy Casey.
