Yes, that's right, the quixotic and exciting Brian winemaking outfit have been making wines in Oregon since 2017. The Tasmanian wines, ‘Rizza’, ‘3Pinots’ and ‘Gris’, are mirrored in Oregon, using almost identical winemaking approaches...

Brian primarily source from and produce at Keeler Estate Vineyard - Eola-Amity Hills - which is certified Organic, Biodynamic, LIVE certified and Salmon safe certified. It's a remarkable vineyard, unsprayed with anything for over a decade, and dry grown. All wines are zero additions. Good times. 

Rizza is riesling that is foot-stomped, fermented on its skins for a couple of days then pressed off to large, old barrels and left on lees - there is no topping up of the barrels and the wine develops a flor (yeast layer) as oxygen interacts with the wine. It is an homage to Jura wines - the Brian Rizza is nutty, savoury, a little fino sherry-like, bristling with crisp acidity, shows cloudy apple juice-like freshness and generally just amazing. So delicious, so refreshing, so much going on.
