Bow down to the beauty that exists in these angelic reds from Germany's fav bros - the Brand Bros! Both 'brand' new to Ontario ;)

A wildly symphonic Pinot Noir appears! Making it’s Ontario debut is this rare, holy grail red from the Brand Bros, two fun-loving brothers making some of the world’s buzziest natural wines out of Pfalz, Germany. Focused on organic viticulture and zero-sulphur winemaking, they’re working to make their vineyard entirely self-sustaining with flora and fauna growing alongside fruits, vegetables and animals. And like any orchestra, many moving parts create a kinetic energy all their own! Sourced from 40 year old vines from their Heiligenkirche vineyard, the grapes were wild fermented and aged in barrel, then bottled without fining, filtration or added sulphites. Broad and ripe on the nose with dark, juicy fruit and a touch of musk, this is Pinot by way of Beauty and the Beast — brambly red fruit, evening dew, salted florals, enchanted roses, dusty libraries, muddy brown boots straight out of the saddle & damp, earthy tannins. Pair with lamb korma, long gallops at night and orchestral renditions of The Cure.

New to Ontario! From fifth-generation winemaking brothers Daniel and Jonas Brand comes this rare, single-varietal Cabernet Franc – a real rarity in Germany and especially in Riesling-obsessed Pfalz! For this top cuvée, the Brand Bros are working with an early-ripening variant which clocks in at an unsuspecting 12% ABV, completely unbefitting its wild, tenacious personality! Like the entire arc of Little Red Riding Hood, this skips through the forest with a basket of summer fruits and herbs but later, bares its teeth as the conniving wolf, all dark, earthy spice with a side of smoked bacon like a Northern Rhône Syrah gone buck. Smells exactly like the inside of famed Kensington Market spice store, Carlo’s House of Spice while being herbal, juicy & meaty all at once. Blackberry seed, white pepper, prosciutto & pine needles with faint whiffs of graphite, eucalyptus and a slight greenish tint. The acid growls but purrs, while the ethereal, complex finish keeps us coming back for more. Utter magic with a healthy dose of reality.
