A little recap: I attended the Wine Bloggers’ Conference in Walla Walla, Washington at the end of June and though I consider myself a podcaster rather than a blogger, Wine Country BC is technically a blog and therefore I felt justified in going. Plus they served us tons of wine and if I have to be a blogger on that occassion, then I’ll take one for the team. Count me in.

Lots happening in this week’s podcast, including a special interview with Audrey Silbernagel from Inniksillin Okanagan Estate Winery. They have a special tour at their winery on the Golden Mile bench that is very exciting, particularly if you are a lover of icewine. She’ll tell us all about it in this exclusive interview recorded at the winery.

But first, we start at the end with a short clip of Jeanette, Linsday and I returning from WBC2010. Then it’s on to more clips – interviews of winery owners and bloggers in attendance at the conference. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a BIG announcement about the future of Wine Country BC’s Podcasts. Take a listen, click and be merry.

      Glad you liked the photos! That was an awesome show! Such a blast and my favourite kind of music too. Funny I had to go to Walla Walla to find out about a band from Vancouver though. The world is strange that way…
