White Field Blend, Pfalz, Germany | Who is this mischievous little cherub?! A nod to a carved, old barrel in town and lovingly drawn by Daniel and Jonas Brand’s grandmother, a local artist who draws all of their labels! We love good boys who love their family! Part of the ‘pur’ series, this is a nod to traditional Austrian field blend 'Gemischtersatz,' a region in Austria that's also style of co-fermented field blend made with no sulphur or other additions. Chardonnay, Müller Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Kerner were fermented with wild yeasts, followed by some time in old oak and stainless steel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fistfuls of herbs, salty apricots, a perfect grapefruit (not the dry ones, ew) meet gingery charm and spice. Cloudy lemonade, dandelion tea, elfin & good-natured, the perfect youthful party boi, Timothée Chalamet and the peach.
Pinot Noir & Blauer Portugieser, Pfalz, Germany | Wildrosé isn’t wild like down to clown but rather wild like the wildness of first love, effervescent and intense, but at the same time weirdly tragic. Not that we’re in any way tied down to the dogma of seasonal drinking— drink Vinho Verde in January! Drink Côte-Rôtie in August! Who cares? Follow your heart!— but this is a winter rosé if we ever saw one, teetering on the border of darkest rosé and lightest red. It’s earthy and even low-key smoky, with homey, soul-warming aromas of cranberry sauce and no shortage of textbook natural wine snarl. Spontaneously fermented in neutral wood, unfined and unfiltered with no sulphur added. Plant-based products like herbal extracts or tea are used to strengthen the vines, which is so cute and hippie-(ish! *One last warning— some natural wines are here for a good time, not a long time. We highly recommend drinking this puppy over the course of one wild night: chug it like you’re raving at Berghain and are desperately in need of thirst-quenching. This wine won’t be at its best the next morning (just like you after a wild night of raving at Berghain))
Dornfelder, Pfalz, Germany | If you remember Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you’ll remember her as the rude, brash girl (we relate!) who unwisely decides to eat Willy Wonka’s “three-course dinner” gum – pea soup, roast beef & blueberry ice cream, all in one! – which inflates her into a giant, blue-faced blueberry. When the Oompa Loompas rolled her off to the juicing room, this must’ve been what they extracted – a wildly juicy & Willy Wonka purple wine that’s a touch vegetal, a bit meaty and has a whiff of blueberry ice cream! Blame it on the Brand Bros, a pair of fifth-generation winemakers working out of the northern end of Pfalz, Germany. Sourced from 60 year old vines on a prized limestone plot and named after Flora, the horse who worked said plot, a variety of techniques – extended open-top fermentation, carbonic maceration, throwing some of last years’s vintage in – come together to create an entire Aesop’s Fable’s worth of feelings and fantasy, all without fining, filtration or added sulphites. Welch’s grape juice meets coronation grape jelly, jasmine flower, Italian plums, wet cobblestones & charcuterie board (board included!) with soft, ripe tannins and a funky floral kick. Might just slap a big silly Cheshire Cat grin on your face.
