December 10th, 2022 Brad Royale – Kitten Swish . It’s for your Mouth

hello

Brad Royale –  Sommelier and Micro-Negotiant. ( Kitten Swish, Tomato Wheels, latest crushing list)

 THE SHOW

 “Like the first bottles released in 2012, all are limited-production, with quirky names and labels derived from photos taken by Royale. There’s Call Me, a 2016 Zinfandel from the renowned Stuhlmuller vineyard in Sonoma, California; the label features a rotary phone.

… and Below the Surface, a 2013 Tempranillo from Rioja, Spain, which features a photo of entwined bodies and is a tribute to the unsung heroes behind every bottle: the growers, printers, graphic designers, shippers, importers. “It’s about all that effort that we forget about when we just grab a bottle off the shelf,” Royale says. “This is a tip of the hat toward what goes into making a great bottle of wine.”

Shelley Boettcher  •  Swerve/Calgary Herald

(Cab Franc-Here and Gone)

 

 

Brad Royale is Head Sommelier for the Concorde Calgary restaurant group with venues ranging from pinball bars, to bbq smokehouses to very fine dinning at  Model Milk,  Bridgette Bar,  to the restaurant  of the year, Major Tom.  Just this week he was part of the team that opened a new restaurant Barbarella.

Brad Royale

Kitten Swish

Brad started ‘Swish in 2012 as a micro-negotiant company.  He works with small quantities of wine from estate producers They make the wine,  Brad makes a blend from their stock,  the team bottles it at the winery under the Kitten Swish label. Brad has wine imported into BC and Alberta.

 

The most recent was Piquette with Rhys Pender MW from Little Farm but he has bottled wines from Hungary (with John Szabo MS), USA, Spain, Germany, France, and British Columbia ( hopes to make a wine from the island next year).  And has a hand in designing the label artwork.  www.kittenswish.com

Little-Farm-Kitten-Swish-Piquette

Tomato Wheels

A brand new project with a partner based in Vancouver, Moirae Choquette.   She heard the Kitten Swish story on a podcast and reached out to  Brad to help her design her own label.  She wanted Lambrusco!  (Don’t we all)  Brad helped her find a fourth-generation vineyard in Emilia Romagna, Italy and the wine began it’s journey.

A brand new order of that Lambrusco is landing right now in Alberta. www.tomatowheels.com

 

 (Little Farm/Kitten Swish  Piquette)

Kitten-Swish

Brad talks about his current  “been crushing”  list

 – Belargus Anju Blanc (bought the Jo Pithon estate and making hard  Chenin)

Marchesseau Bourguiel (been crushing Loire Valley a lot in general lately…wicked value)

Domaine Wachau Gruner Veltliner Kellerberg (available in BC to, sick stuff)

– Aubert Chardonnay (recent visit to Vegas my mission was to taste as much as possible…it’s good to have goals)

 

We cover a lot of ground over the course of this TRR – some of these wines will be harder to find or access from outside Alberta BUT they are well worth the seeking!!

Unlike anything else, you’ll see and taste in your local store.  Promise.

December 3rd, 2022- Luke  Whittall – The Sipster’s Pocket Guide to 50 BC Wines

hello

Luke  Whittall – The Sipster’s Pocket Guide to 50 Must-Try BC Wines

Proudly Sponsored by Harbour Air

THE SHOW

Confession Time. I’m half  a year late in getting this story to you.

Then one day, not too long ago a book arrived. Quietly.  On  a Tuesday!

It was smaller than most because it’s a pocketbook. Meant to be carried in a shoulder bag, glove compartment or back pocket.

The author is Luke Whittall. His first books were Valleys of Wine: A Taste of British Columbia’s Wine History and The Okanagan Tour Guide with John Schreiner.

 

He’s currently a wine instructor at Okanagan College and is involved with a valley wine.

Personally, Luke continues his own wine training with WSET.

Luke Whittall author

The Sipster’s Guide will surprise you.

It contains none of the usual tasting notes,  growing season info,  cellar hacks or wine scores.

It speaks to all in a language they can understand. Without dumbing down the knowledge.

And pairing?

You can choose a wine to  match your attitude. From happy to herbal.  From rock star to romantic.

The front inside cover has 50 choices.

Luke’s writing is such a surprise. For example, he doesn’t just sip and spit…

After opening a bottle, Luke lets it breathe while he cooks dinner or lunch to match the wine. Smart!

It’s a great read and a perfect gift for giving.

To yourself and those wine fans around you.

Sipster’s Guide Vol 2 comes out in the Spring!!

 

Luke has started a podcast.

You can find him on line at

EP 234 | Art Bergmann (this time with his music)

hello

Last week we presented our #233 Podcast – Art Bergmann and Author Jason Schneider.

This week it’s the same interview but with  MUSIC.

The conversation was like driving during rush hour at Le Mans

A three-way dialogue about punks, music, drugs, lost partners, the shit show called the music business, and friendships.

Thing is – it’s all contained in Art’s music.

And so, we’ve decided to encore the Bergmann interview but include the music that best reflects the man.

The man is goodness- in-a-can!!!

And Jason Schneider is a damn WRITER.

Here comes Episode #234

Mulligan Stew Dec 3rd 2022-The Start of The Christmas Cone

hello

The Start of The Christmas Cone

 

Here’s what December and Mulligan Stew have in common.

We’re both like an ice cream cone.

Dec 1 we’re the tiny tip at the bottom but as the days come and go we get bigger and bigger until we become the delight  at the very top. Just-Like-A Cone!!

December is a season that really comes alive with music. Not the cheesy Christmas songs that get beaten into submission every year but the ones that cause reflection, kindness, and comfort.

It’s just the start of “a tingly feeling”

Here’s the tip of our Christmas Cone…

It starts with two live tracks

Bob Dylan and The Band  – All Along The Watchtower

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – An American Girl

Can you feel it….?

And then right back into an extended Duets Special – this time the songs requested by last week’s audience.

Taj Mahal  and Los Lobos

Jenn Grant and Kim Harris

Buddy and Julie Miller

Van Morrison and Georgie Fame

Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks

Sonny and Cher

Tina and Adams

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss

Ray Charles and BB King

We throw in some Tedeschi Trucks/Leon Bridges, Harrison Kennedy, Rhiannon Giddens, Stones, James Brown, The Beatles (Rubber Soul), Blue Rodeo, Angela Strehli, Delbert McClinton, and Faces.

And we finish with a remembrance of Christine McVie and Frank Zappa.

TDM and Frank Zappa

Have a great December. Going to be a hell of an ice cream cone

EP 233 | Art Bergmann and Jason Schneider on new Biography ‘The Longest Suicide’

hello

Terry David Mulligan talks with Canada’s punk poet laureate, Art Bergmann has been tearing up stages, and terrifying the music industry, for half a century. Often referred to as “Canada’s Lou Reed,” Art’s story is one of rock and roll’s great tales untold. Until now. From his days helping to lay the foundation of the Vancouver punk scene with The K-Tels, to his acclaimed solo work in the ’80s and ’90s, and a late career resurgence that has culminated with being named to the Order of Canada, The Longest Suicide chronicles every unlikely twist and turn Art’s life has taken.

Jason Schneider

Working with veteran music journalist Jason Schneider, Art lays it all out in his own inimitable way, with dozens of people who took part adding their own voices to corroborate (and sometimes dispute) the often-incredible chain of events. With cameos by John Cale, Bob Rock, The Clash, Bob Geldof and many others, The Longest Suicide is both a triumphant story of personal survival, as well as a unique glimpse inside the rise of alternative rock. Above all, it is a tribute to Canada’s most unheralded singer-songwriter, whose greatness is only now being widely recognized.

 

 

Illustrated throughout.

From the Introduction:
“The story of Art Bergmann’s career is perceived by many to be a succession of failures, but the story of Art’s life? If Art doesn’t have the best story, it is always the most magical.”
— Michael Turner, author of Hard Core Logo

Praise for The Longest Suicide:
“ a brisk, plain-spoken and thoroughly well-researched rip through the genuinely wild, wildlife of a genuinely committed rock-’n’-roller.”
— The Toronto Star
