(AUDIO) Episode 220 – “A Cross Country Lifeline”

(2018)  It’s the story that’s been making the rounds in wine circles across the country.

In a Northwest Wine Radio exclusive interview, we sit down with the Virginia winemaker who discovered someone had stolen two tons of grapes, and the Washington winemaker who came to his rescue.  You’ll definitely enjoy the story of how the folks at Alexandria Nicole Cellars in Paterson, WA saved the day.

Then, we’re off to Oakland…not California, but Oregon…for the story behind a fictional mountain, and how it provided the inspiration for Spire Mountain Cellars.  And, how much do you really know about craft beer?  We get the chance to sit down with a cicerone (think sommelier, but for beer) and pick his brain about brewing, as well as the story behind Bend’s Worthy Brewing.

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.
