Ep 38 | Elvin Bishop Podcast

Jan 5, 2019

Elvin Bishop was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 for his work with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Just one year later, he was also added to the ranks of the Blues Hall of Fame in his own right. This year, Elvin was nominated for a Grammy for his latest album, Something Smells Funky Round Here.

On this episode, Terry talks to Elvin about his amazing 50-year-plus career. Elvin talks about his family’s reaction to his decision to pursue music as a career, his induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame with the Butterfield Blues Band, protest music in 2019, and his mentors Otis Rush and Little Smokey Smothers.

Ep 37 | Green Book co-writer Nick Vallelonga Podcast

Dec 29, 2018

Terry talks to writer and producer Nick Vallelonga about his Golden Globe-nominated film Green Book. Set in 1962, the film tells the story of Vallelonga’s father Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) a bouncer from the Bronx who is hired to drive and protect pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mashershala Ali) on a concert tour from New York to the Deep South. The pair use “The Green Book” to guide them to establishments safe for African-Americans.

Harry Hertscheg  – (Executive Director  41st Vancouver International Wine Festival)

Harry Hertscheg

Vancouver International Wine Festival has been described as “the largest wine festival in the Americas” with 25,000+ admissions. It is Canada’s premier wine show and widely considered to be one of the best wine events in the world. At age 41, it is also among the oldest.

Its slogan is “The Wine World is Here”. For the past six years, VIWF has been voted the #1 Food, Wine & Hospitality Event in Canada by New York’s BizBash.

41st annual (founded 1979)

8 days, Feb 23-Mar 3 (Bacchanalia Gala, Feb 23)

25,000+ admissions


16 countries

160 wineries; including 53 from featured region California

54 events (20 are California events)


1,500 wines projected, including an estimated:

42,000 bottles poured and/or purchased.


vanwinefest The Goods

Harry Hertscheg is the perfect guy to guest here as he loves his VanWineFest numbers  plus he’s been on TRR many times and we seem to have developed a “shorthand” in getting through all the information the festival contains.

Most importantly, California is the featured wine region this year.  After all the fires, droughts then  floods they could use all the love we have to offer.

They were the first ever featured region via Robert Mondavi Wines and Vancouver is the closest international market to California.

Remember, one of the ways we can help them recover from the disasters is to buy their wines and send our support.  California is the single most popular wine region in BC.  Now is when they need us most.

But first, you have to have a ticket to get in.  Harry has some ideas for you.  How to get in and how to work the room.


 Kendall-Jackson/Winemaker Randy Ullom


Randy Ullom Kendall-Jackson

“I look at all of the vineyards we own, and all of the individual lots of wines that we make, and the thousands of barrels we have sitting in our cellar and sometimes I think, you gotta be kidding me! After I’ve sufficiently recovered from my daily panic attack, I take off my coat, dig in my heels and take it one barrel at a time. It’s a rewarding job that I love.”

 Randy Ullom

 Hired by Jess Jackson in 1992 as Winemaker for some of their smaller and international vineyards, Randy was handed his most prestigious assignment in 1997 – Winemaster for Kendall-Jackson Winery.

A native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Randy became interested in wine during a three-year stay in Chile, while on sabbatical from college in the early 1970s. His stay inspired a cross-country trek through Chile’s vast wine-growing regions. On his return to the United States, he entered Ohio State University to study crop production with a specialty in Viticulture and Enology and received his degree in 1975.

After six years as a vineyard manager and Winemaker in Ohio and upstate New York, Randy moved to California to become associate Winemaker at De Loach Vineyards in Sonoma County. He was promoted to Winemaker and Vice President in 1991. The wines produced during his tenure were consistent gold medal winners at wine competitions.

Dude looks like a Sherriff from Dodge City..Oversees the growing and creating of 5 Million cases of wine from 35 labels. (check their website below)

His job includes  working with wines grown in Sonoma, Chile, Bordeaux, Australia and Italy.

This is a fun interview..with lots of information on their wines.  We love these wines..and why not?  They take such great care in their craft!!

See for yourself as Randy will be heading for this years VanWineFest

Ep 36 | Serena Ryder Podcast

Dec 16, 2018

This week, its Terry’s first special of the Christmas season with Serena Ryder. The Canadian hit-maker previews her new album Christmas Kisses, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin.
“When I was a young girl, I would spend hours upon hours locked away in my room listening and singing to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simon and Chet Baker” shares Ryder. “It’s been a dream of mine to be able to sing an entire album in this style – and also a dream to be able to embrace the spirit of Christmas in a genuinely joyful way.”
The podcast includes four tracks from the new record, including “Christmas Song” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” “White Christmas” and “Blue Christmas”.

Mulligan Stew December 15th- Serena Ryder

The great thing about Serena Ryder’s  Christmas Kisses album is that –
she’s done all her homework.
Serena grew up in a family that embraced Christmas and their soundtrack
included Ella, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, and Chet Baker.

Classic singers..all from the jazz world.
So Christmas Kisses worked on two levels for Serena.
One – it allowed her to do her first season album with classic Christmas
songs she’s loved since she was born.
Two – she finally gets to do something she’s long wanted to do –  a jazz-influenced
album.  I sure hope it’s not the last.  She gets IT.
And the last track on the album…Christmas Song was recorded on her iPhone
for her producer, the legend Bob Ezrin as a demo.
Bob liked it so much he put it on the album – as is!!
Merry Christmas

Much to talk about with Joseph.

Blending  in-house wine for Gotham/Hy’s.  Answering our three questions,
walking us through their new releases

Blind Creek Viognier – Gold Nat Wine Awards  2017  $18.49

Steve. Megan.TDM

Earlier this year, the  team from Hy’s and Gotham visited with Road 13
Vineyards, the 2018 Canadian Winery of the Year, to craft a proprietary red
wine exclusively for Hy’s of Canada’s three British Columbia restaurants.

Working carefully with Road 13, they created a  gorgeous blend that
perfectly compliments Hy’s and Gotham’s  menus.

The wine:
named 18-six-18,  was added to their  wine lists in early December. It’s a
great blend from Road 13’s Blind Creek Vineyard in The Similkameen. 34%
Merlot. 46% Cabernet Sauvignon. 5% Petit Verdot. 15% Malbec


Notes of Cassis, Black fruit.  In the mouth, a sense of black pepper, sage,
dark chocolate, anise and more.

Only available at the three BC restaurants.

In addition, Gotham will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in early 2019
and we get some stories on those years.


Gotham is famous  for being the home away from home for visiting hockey
teams, film and music stars.

Megan brings perspective on the 20 years of Gotham and how much the
restaurant business has changed in Vancouver in those 20 years.

Sam and Steve talk about creating their blend and then answer today’s three
questions.  Wines of the Year. Trends.  Wine Gifts.

Dan Wright –  Winemaker at Unsworth Vineyards  (Cowichan Valley)

Dan Wright (Unsworth)

I’ve done a number of Unsworth features. With Chris and Tim Turyk. However,
I had never interviewed Winemaker Dan Wright.

First time we met I told him the next interview was his. Along comes new
releases from Unsworth and the perfect opportunity to get together.

Dan talks about new releases, the 2015 Cuvee De L’ile (traditional method
sparkling)  and a new dessert wine called Mistelle. (Mistelle is made from
100% estate Pinot Gris fortified with a spirit made from the Pinot Gris

and 2016 Symphony (red blend – Cabernet Libre & Petit Milo)

Dan also describes CharmeCharme Rose  – Pinot Noir And the very popular

Lots to like here!

Dan also answers today’s three questions..

Wines of the Year, Trends. Wine Gifts

Rhys Pender – Master of Wine/Partner at Little Farms Winery/ Wine Plus WSET

Rhys Pender – Little Farm & Wine Plus (Lionel Trudel)

Rhys is the first of three wine ambassadors/teachers who I’m pleased to call
a friend.

(Next Week, Kurtis Kolt from The Georgia Straight and DJ Kearney Global Wine
Expert and New District consultant will be featured in a special on Wines of
the Year, Trends of 2018 and Wine Gifts.

We’ll publish all three lists before we’re done.)

As a Master of Wine, Rhys had tasted thousands of wines, so to ask him to
narrow his recommendations down to a handful is a tough call. It took him a
day or so to really think about his choices but here they are and Rhys
explains why.

He took on the Trends and Wine Gifts questions as well.

  • Le Vieux Pin Cuvée Violette Syrah ($27)
  • Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling 2012 ($43 Private stores)
  • Louis Jadot Meursault ($94)
  • Joie Farm Gamay ($24)
  • Fitz Blanc de Blancs ($42.50)

Trends – Natural becoming mainstream but worrying trends of sugaring up
And as gifts – Fitz Blanc de Blanc ($42.50). In fact any Blanc de Blancs
bubbly. Or Chablis or Beaujolais because that’s what I want!
