(AUDIO) Episode 233 – Exploring Passion Close To Home

(2019)  In some parts of the Pacific Northwest, its just not very easy to grow wine grapes.  Specifically, western Washington just isn’t the place you find a lot of vineyards.

Until you look very closely.

This week, we feature to story of Skagit Crest Vineyard & Winery of La Conner, Washington.  We find out how a couple found a way to live and make wine close to home!  Then we travel to the most eastern part of Washington to meet some brewers who have really gone to the dogs.  There’s plenty of evidence when you hear the names of some of the beers at English Setter Brewery in Spokane Valley.

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.
