Northwest Wine Radio – “An Oasis of Good Wine” (ep199)


(2018)  First there was Duck Pond, then came Desert Wind Winery.  We meet the Fries family, the force behind two well-known names in Northwest wine.  And each label highlights the best of the state in which it calls home.

Then we have a good conversation with the family behind Fremont Mischief distillery in Seattle.  It’s fun to hear the story of the operation, but REALLY fun when our friend, winemaker John Bieglow of JM Cellars stops in, and the winemaker asks the distiller some good questions.  There might even be a deal brokered right on our show!

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.
