Broadway Wine Club was founded by a team of wine and theatre professionals who are passionate about bringing these two communities together. We know there is no greater pairing because we’ve tasted it.
Broadway Wine Club and iHeartMedia New York’s iHeartRadio Broadway announced today the launch of a new iHeartRadio Original Podcast, The Broadway Happy Hour Podcast. The podcast, distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network, premieres today and can be heard on iHeartRadio, iHeartRadioBroadway.com and everywhere podcasts are heard.
Sip wine with the stars at The Broadway Happy Hour Podcast, hosted by Kate Rockwell, Broadway actor and certified wine expert. In each episode, Rockwell will interview guests from Broadway about their work on stage and screen and what they love to drink. Unlike other interview podcasts, The Broadway Happy Hour will feature a variety of unique stories from backstage to the best bars, all while teaching you more about fine wine, cocktails, craft ales and other delicious libations. Listeners can pour a glass and join in on the fun.

A serial entrepreneur with experience in fashion and luxury goods, Nathan built a bespoke footwear business in London, expanded fashion brands across the US, Europe, and Asia, and for a while had a tin mine in Mongolia. His fondest theater experience was attending the opening night of Mamma Mia! in Beijing, (although he never managed to figure out who Sophie’s dad was due to his lack of fluency in Mandarin). His education in wine started with a harvest in Oregon in the 90’s, combined cellar rat duties with learning to surf in Margaret River, Australia, and is now limited to barrel tastings with friends in California, Oregon, and Washington – now that he’s too tender to bucket out a fermenter or throw around totes. Nathan made his Broadway debut as a co-producer on Jagged Little Pill.
Scott is the principal of No Roof. Having opened Wood & Vine in 2010, Grass Fed in 2012 and Spin the Bottle Wine Studio in 2013, No Roof was formed to establish a platform with which to streamline operations. With experience stemming from running an exotics trading desk for JPMorgan in New York and London, logistics and operations are a natural fit. Scott relocated to the Santa Ynez Valley in 2016 where he purchased a small vineyard and now makes wine under his Watchtower brand while applying his operational expertise to the wine industry.
