(AUDIO) Episode 213 – “The True Story Behind The ‘Cheeks'”

(2018 – Season 5 Premiere)  We begin our 5th year on the radio with some good wine, and maybe a teeny-tiny bit of scandal.  After all, we’re going to reveal the true story of how Sweet Cheeks Winery in Eugene got it’s name.  We have some great laughs with the family that started this unique southern Willamette Valley operation.

Ever heard of Schilling Spices?  From the same family that brought you cinnamon and nutmeg for decades comes Seattle-based Schilling Cider.  We’ll hear their story, and find out what’s behind some of their unique flavor combinations.

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.
