German wine maker Daniel Immich came to Portland for a promotional tour of the West Coast, and we were lucky enough to get him back on the show. Barnaby Tuttle from the Teutonic Wine Company joined us as well. The two of them took on an ambitious project to make a blend of Mosel and Oregon Riesling, and we taste the blend, and the two base wines together on the show. “The Bridge” is a blend of 2012 Riesling from Germany and Oregon. The two base wines are the 2012 Immich Anker Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and the 2012 Teutonic Wine Company Crow Valley Riesling.

Daniel Immich makes wine at Immich-Anker in Enkirch, in the Mosel Valley of Germany. Here’s a link to see where that is.

He was visiting Portland, and kindly agreed to do a show with us! His family has been making wine in Enkirch since the 1400’s, and he shares some information about a historic vineyard and a unique wine he’s making with our local friends and importers, the Teutonic Wine Company. They import his wine to the USA, so contact them if you’d like to pick some up.  On the show, we taste the 2009 Riesling Sekt Brut, the 2011 Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and the unlreleased “Bridge Wine”.
