This year the Brand Red is a little different and carries the battle-scars of 2021 with grace. With such heavy losses to the Portugieser thanks to the Kirschessigfliege/Drosophila Suzukii fly, what little they picked was saved for Wildrosé. Brand Red was instead assembled from a few different varieties this year: 40% Pinot Noir, 30% Dornfelder, 25% Cab Franc and 5% Riesling. All with a carbonic maceration of 10-14 days, mostly pressed to wooden barrels to finish fermentation, with the Pinot Noir pressed to stainless steel. Assembled and bottled with no additions the following spring.

Organic, No Added Sulfur, Vegan

Fifth-generation winemaker Daniel Brand first brought organic production to his Bockenheim family farm in 2007 and joined by brother Jonas, started producing wines without sulphur in 2014 (Pur). Riesling and Pinot Blanc dominate their collection, and they make wines with youthful attitude but also care and precision. Their 16 hectares are mostly on the  windy Bockenheimer hillside, planted on  loam with a lot of shell limestone. It is one of the coolest climate sites in the Pfalz.
