Not all Tasting Room shows are about wine or food or travel. Sometimes they’re about music, film and books. And food and wine.
This show is a special cuddle with friends who happen to be famous because what they do – music, film, comedy – they do very well!!
For example – Jason Priestley. Jason Priestley A Memoir
World famous as that wuss Brandon in 90210. Fantastic as Fitz in Call me Fitz.
He’s a really fine director, Father and now writer.
His 2014 book is called Jason Priestley – A Memoir.
Stories about his years on 90210, sharing an apartment with Brad Pitt, crashing his race car In Kentucky and breaking bones from his feet up and having to learn to walk and talk again and life after 90210.
Jason is also my co-host/co-exec producer on 3 years of Hollywood and Vines TV.
JP really knows his wines and we LOVE to riff on what we’ve been tasting.
How about – Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo and the Jim Cuddy Band)
We know Jim through his amazing singing and songwriting career with Canada’s Blue Rodeo.

Bruce McCulloch is a punk..

Its been six years since Tom released his last album but he’s about to reveal his latest collection of songs Take It Home early in 2015..with a Take it Home tour I might add.
Tom can now add to his collection of Junos, Order of Canada and Walk of Fame induction the name Guest on Tasting Room Radio.
and finally Adam Cohen…
He’s just a great guy…,Father, Husband, eye candy, singer, songwriter and son of Leonard Cohen.
Imagine setting out to carve a career in the family business..the baggage you have to carry..the constant comparisons between Father and Son.
Thing is – Adam’s ok with all that. He’s come to grips with his songs and his voice.
