Episode 175 – Washington Wine Month Part 4: Sipping with Shae – A Grape Conversation on Frichette Wines Episode 175 – Washington Wine Month Part 4: Sipping with Shae – A Grape Conversation on Frichette Wines

In today’s episode, we put a bow on Washington Wine Month as we taste through four wines with Shae Frichette, co owner and winemaker of Frichette Winery, who is about making amazing memories. We have guests for many reasons, but the individual and uniques stories top that list and Shae shares one of the best stories we’ve heard. And we raise a glass to Shelley’s Mom and Brother, Hilda and Garry, respectfully.
