July 2nd, 2022- Checking in with The Neighbourhood!!

hello

Checking in with The Neighbourhood!!

 

THE SHOW

 Tasting Room Radio has been celebrating Canadian wine and food for 15 years.

We could not have stayed the course and grown without  the support of our segment sponsors

Thus, each year we make a point of making a feature fuss about our neighbors.

Thing is, we’d be doing feature stories on them anyway because they’re all winners.

When we decided to have a sponsor for each segment we had one bottom line

“if we have to talk about someone for a year,  let’s make sure we like them!  As great people and as singular artisans”!

 We are honored to welcome our in show  neighbors into the feature spotlight (in the order in which they became available)

Jason Parkes CustomsJason Parkes  (Founder) and Develyn Barker (Dreamer and Doer)  West Kelowna, BC

Jason Parkes and crew

Their story just keeps on growing.

Came on board as The Hatch Winery. Well named, as they released well-crafted and accessible wines but they also “hatched” a series of new labels,  all heading in different wonderful directions.

The Hatch, Gobsmacked Series, Hobo Series.

Then came Black Swift, Crown and Thieves, The Hatching Post, Truck 59 Cider House, and SmokeShow BBQ plus  wines such as  Screaming Frenzy, 14 house beers, The Angel Share rooftop restaurant, The Broken Hearts Club speakeasy (house band is Proper Man, also home to Hangover Church, etc)

They have created their own JPC Wine Trail – a 5-hour adventure you will talk about and might even remember.

…And the wines? Bigger and better every season!  Beautifully crafted and pushing the boundaries – much like the people who make them!

JPC is one of the great success stories in BC wine. Best of all, they did it their way!  Rock on!

(there is no known photo of Jason Parkes but he did send this message “wine is just yeast poop”

Unsworth Vineyards – Dan Wright (Winemaker) Christle Pope (Manager) Karen Newington (Tasting Room Manager)  Cowichan Valley, Van Island

Mere minutes from our home in Mill Bay, it’s also top of mind when we think, “it’s time for wine and dine”

The Turyk Family has created a beautiful destination is perhaps the most gorgeous small farming valley in the area.

Dan Wright

The bonus is , the wines are outstanding and the restaurant is hugely popular.

They have just received a Silver Medal and  91 points for their 2019 Pinot Noir from Decanter Magazine. A first for Vancouver Island winemaking.

The new owners have their own family roots deep into the history of Napa and Sonoma. One of the first decisions was to let the Unsworth team carry on making better and better wines and the second was to start production on a new vineyard outside Duncan.

The future looks very bright for Unsworth Vineyards – so we have much to talk about!

www.unsworthvineyards.com

Moon Curser Vineyards – Beata and Chris Tolley (Owners/Founders) Osoyoos, BC

At the very bottom of the Okanagan Valley is Osoyoos. It’s right up against the US border and surrounded by some of the very best vineyards in Canada.

One of them is Moon Curser. It’s the winemaking passion of Beata and Chris Tolley. It’s also their home.

Well, it was,  until they just had to move off-site to get a break from the daily weight of farming. It’s a hard road,  no whining is allowed.

Chris Tolley

In wine circles, they’re famous for the amazing varietals they make – several are the only ones being made in Canada.

However, what they do make are wines judged to be as good as anything in Canada.  That’s how they were named The WineAlign  Best Small Winery in Canada in 2019.

We’ll be talking Arneis, Viognier, Roussanne Marsanne, Carmenere, Dolcetto, Malbec, Syrah, Contraband Syrah, Border Vines, Tannat, Tempranillo and Touriga National.

Beata Tolley

There’s more. Next time we’ll talk about their bubble program featuring Eclipse, Moonlit and their Heist Rose.

Four of those wines can only be found through their wine club. Giddy Up!

www.mooncurser.com

Hillside Estate Winery  – Kathy Malone  (Senior Winemaker)  – Executive Chef Evan Robertson (The Bistro at Hillside)  Naramata Bench, BC

Kathy Malone

Classy!  

That describes Kathy and Evan, and the rest of the team at Hillside and especially Hillside Estate itself.

A much-honored winery with an atmosphere that comes from being one of the first three wineries in the area and always being a benchmark for Naramata Wines.

Hillside made a commitment years ago to only use grapes farmed on the Naramata Bench.

This conversation was important. To get caught up with Kathy’s latest releases, growing conditions in 2021, and then what dishes Chef Evan recommends from his menu to pair with each wine.

We talk  Cab Franc, Gewurztraminer, Muscat Ottonel, Viognier, Syrah,   Merlot – Hidden Valley Vineyard

From the kitchen,  Evan teases us with Tomato Capresse, Panzanella Salad, House-made fresh pasta, Gnocchi, 50oz Northern Gold Beef Tomahawk.

EP 145 | Buffy Saint-Marie Turns 80-REPEAT!

hello

Last Saturday Singer/Songwriter, Educator, Social Activist, Mother, and leader Buffy Saint-Marie celebrated her 80th Birthday.  

She had some cake she made the night before and called us from her home in Hawaii.

This is the complete interview 

(Keep your ears open for chickens and roosters in the yard and about 15 minutes in a huge rainstorm pounds the roof.  She does live in a rainforest after all)

Because we have known each other over so many years, I went all the way back to her birth. She was abandoned as a baby and adopted by a family who gave her love and education. Buffy explains that she doesn’t really know her real birthday date but it didn’t let her stop becoming a legend.

Original photography by Jack Robinson.
www.robinsonarchive.com

She was told at 6 years old in school that “there were no more Indians around. All Gone.  Maybe some in Arizona”.  We talk about what has changed for young native students. If anything.

Buffy has always lived a life looking at ”the long view”.  In our talk, she explains what that means and how well it served her. She likes “busy”. Busy is good.

She’s won a Grammy, An Oscar, received an  Order of Canada,  spent 5 glorious years educating on Sesame Street, and has received countless honors.

You can read about her amazing life in Andrea Warner’s  Book,  Buffy Saint-Marie – The Authorized Bio.

We welcome back – The Buffster.

June 25th, 2022 – Our yearly Pinot Noir Geek Out!

hello

Our yearly Pinot Noir Geek Out – with  15 top experts and a  Pinot  Blind Tasting!

Proudly Sponsored by Harbour Air

THE SHOW

 Bordeaux is made by man, Pinot Noir by God.

Pinot Noir may not be the most planted grape in the World but no other varietal even comes close to the dialogue that takes place between winemakers and wine fans about the place of Pinot in today’s wine world.

Whether they love Pinot Noir or not, wine people all have an opinion on this grape. Described as the diva of the wine world”, it takes a really focused winemaker and farmer to grow, harvest, and cellar this beauty.

The payoff is spectacular.

Notes and flavors of Clove, Cherry, Mushroom, Floral, Soil, Tea, Vanilla, blackberry, and plum. Lush and lengthy.

High acidity and lower tannin make Pinot Noir perfectly paired with pork, mushrooms, duck, and chicken.

I’ve been doing Pinot Noir interviews for 15 years and I’m still learning from the many stories being told.

I’ve gone back into the Tasting Room Radio files to share some of the stories and people who’ve stayed with me over the years.

Check this out:

Nigel Greening – Owner Felton Road Winery (Central Otago NZ)

Kurtis Kolt – Wine Educator – Judge – Sommelier (Vancouver)

Vikram Vij –  Chef – Author  (Vancouver)

This pinot noir  special concludes with a Blind Tasting of 2018 Pinots

It was organized by John Glavina – the owner of Giant Head Winery in Summerland. John wanted to include several of his pinots to discover how they stood up to the competition. (He didn’t tell anyone that his wines were in the mix)

Tasting on the day were two of the very best wine minds.  Great guys.

John Schreiner – The Dean of Canadian wine writers (15 books in total) Master Blogger.

TDM. John Schreiner. Brent Gushowaty

Brent Gushowaty – A Pinot specialist. Founder of  bcpinotnoir.com

I was delighted to be judging in such fine company.

The discussion went on for several hours and I’ve done my best to edit the prime points down into a segment of the show.

I couldn’t get all the comments on the blind wines when revealed but we did talk about the top two and several others not in the room.

The Pinot Noir poured on the day were…

2018 Giant Head Estate Winery Flagship Pinot Noir

2018 Fox and Archer – Brent G. choice

2019  Canyonview Wines Brand – CVW – Pinot Noir

2018 Spearhead- Saddle Block Vineyard

2018 Lake Breeze Aura

2018 giant head Pinot Noir Reserve

The segment is memorable just to hear the conversation between John Schreiner and Brent Gushowaty.

I thank John Glavina for the invitation for myself and the microphone plus John & Brent for the Pinot Masterclass. I also thank Harbour Air for the beautiful trip over and back.

MulliganStew June 18th 2022- Happy 80th Birthday Paul McCartney!

hello

It’s 1968..I’m in London for the opening of the Apple Store and Company. Sgt Pepper has just been released.

I have a night off and it’s suggested I check out a band at a great small club called Bag O Nails.

The band was great (power trio.,. Sorry can’t remember the name) BUT also very interested were The Beatles.

 3 of the guys walked in and took a booth.

Something compelled me to sit down beside Paul after the band took a break.

I said something like..” we were born days apart. Same year. We’ll be walking the same roads and years. Take care of yourself”

He wanted to know where in Canada I was from and exchanged wartime stories about our Fathers and what brought me to London.  “You… Apple. The Beatles. Music”

We talked for 5 minutes and shook hands…

So. Here we are on the occasion of Paul’s 80th birthday.  He’s still playing concerts and touring. Stays and plays on stage for well over 2 hours.

And I’m still playing his music.  If you take care of yourself and voice and write meaningful tunes..you can rock into your 80s

Playlist includes

Paul solo

Paul Acoustic

The Beatles  Live and Studio

 

Amy Helm, Jim Byrnes, Wicked Wilson Pickett, Van and Buble,  Corey Wong brings the funk, Black Keys, RL Burnside, Annie Lennox, Michael Franti,   John Scofield, Mariel Buckley, Landreth Bros.

June 18th, 2022 – Wine Growers of BC: 2021 Vintage Preview

hello

THE SHOW   

Title Sponsored by Harbour Air

Every year is a growing year for the wine farmers and winemakers.

And because farmers are dealing with the whims of the planet..all bets are off until the harvest is in.

Heat, frost, hail, insects,  wind, smoke, leaf infestation, drought, floods etc  all either assist the vineyards or shut the whole growing process down.

Most farmers and winemakers  I interview are a happy bunch, after you get past the premature grey hair and dark humour.

It’s a hard road they’re walking but some of our favourite wines become  the end result.

That’s why the annual Wine Growers of BC Vintage Preview is so important.

The 2021 growing season featured Heat Domes and Smoke Taint. Laura Kittmer and her Wine BC team gathered winemakers from all regions of BC to exchange growing problems and solutions.

 

Laura Kittmer WineBC

 

There were some surprises along the way. One of them  is how similar the hurdles are, whether its Cowichan or Golden Mile.

So, the next time you’re shopping for BC wine and the year on the label  is 2021 – think about the winemakers below and their journey through that year.

Interview guests are bolded:

Chris Tolley, Winemaker, Moon Curser Vineyards  (Osoyoos)   www.mooncurser.com

Dwight Sick, Winemaker, Seven Stones Winery (Similkameen) www.sevenstones.ca

We promise to get caught up with Lyndsay O’Rourke and Mark Holford.

Enjoy your 2021 BC wines. Each bottle has a story to tell.

EP 112 | Jim Cuddy and Barney Bentall on Fathers Day- Encore Presentation

hello

This Fathers Day gathering took place June 2020. It was so informative and fun that we decided to repeat it this year. Yes there’s talk about lockdown but what that chat reveals is the joy both guys found in “watching the seasons change” and that included their children growing up. They have a revealing discussion between themselves about their children following in their footsteps and the mine field of giving those children advice.

It still rings true.

Welcome to The Mulligan Stew Podcast. Encore  Presentation 

OK. Its Fathers Day weekend.

It’s also Summer Solstice

I always hear a phrase…. “I’m in the family business”

Now, that works if your family are Store Owners, or Office Workers, Doctors. Nurses. Teachers. Farmers etc.

We have two guests today who are friends and fathers.

Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo and The Jim Cuddy Band.

Barney Bentall. Leader of Cariboo Express. High Bar Gang. BYU and his own solo career.

 

How has the family dynamic changed when their sons and daughters follow them in the music business.

Share the stage. Maybe even write songs together. (maybe being the key word)

And how do family members like being the subject of songs they hear on the radio?

I was excited to get these two pals together and exchange life experiences.

Saturday June 18 Barney plays  the Beaumont Blues & Roots Fest.  New album Cosmic Dreamer

Jim and Blue Rodeo play the PNE  Aug 21

We connected on Zoom and you can find the complete conversation below:

EP 211 | Joe Keithley-Hardcore Politics

hello

Guest is a long-time friend Joe Keithley (also known by his D.O.A hardcore punk stage name Joe Shithead)

One of the very few punk artists who didn’t bring their stage characters into their real world.

Joe on stage was wild, pissed off, and very much in your face.

Off stage, he was just a great guy from Burnaby. A regular Joe.

Joe founded D.O.A

Founded Sudden Death Records

Rock Against Racism

Harmony for all – gathering used instruments for Burnaby residents who don’t have access to them.

D.O.A is celebrating the 40th anniversary of their LP Hardcore 81

And Director Scott Crawford is shooting a documentary on Joe and DOA called Something Better Change (named after DOA’s first album)

He’s already shot and released  Creem: America’s only rock and roll magazine and Salad Days. Both were outstanding.

Many of Joe’s former bandmates are long gone but he’s continued to grow and learn to such an extent that he’s now a twice-elected Burnaby City Councillor and  Joe’s just gearing up for another run for office. Knocking on doors is his specialty.

I think he mentions 13,000 during one campaign.

Here’s the best part – he’s still making music with DOA..getting in a tour of Ontario, Quebec, and BC’s interior before the election.

To quote Dan Aykroyd “ is it a floor wax or a shampoo”

Can a guy be a hard-core punker and a politician???

Yes.. yes you can. If you’re Joe Keithley.

Mulligan Stew June 11th 2022- A Special Stew-From The CKUA Boardroom for Brad and Henry
