Exceptional natural wines from Germany! The brothers Brand, Daniel, and Jonas have quickly brought attention to the far northern Pfalz, a cool-climate, limestone-rich, yet otherwise overlooked region. These fifth-generation winemakers took over the family winery from their father Jürgen in 2014 – with his support, they expanded from 12 to 18ha and transitioned production to fully certified organic growing and making 100% natural. The Pur has no sulfites added and is the transparent expression of the grape and terroir.
Bockenheim has a cooler climate than most of the Pfalz (therefore the grapes ripen slower). The weather in their area is influenced by the Donnersberg mountain (around 650m high) which shields them from incoming weather systems, the wind is then funneled down two valleys which means it is fairly breezy and this helps keep the vineyards free from mildew.
The Pur Range are all unfined, unfiltered and with no additions, including sulphur and as such under German law the wines are unable to be labeled as Pfalz.
Weingut Brand deliver again with this crunchy fresh nouveau style, gluggable red. This is a total juice BOMB! Serve it cold and drink from the bottle. HOT DAMN, this is juicy.

~2016 CABERNET FRANC~
Cherries and salty capers, black and red plums. Just 2 old barriques’ worth of wine was made. The grapes come from a south-facing site on the southern end of the village. Less rustic and herbal than it’s Loire cousins, the testure here is ultra-fine with dark-toned, brooding and spicy flavours. Polished and spectacular.
2016 Cabernet Franc Pur 6x750ml | SKU #11659 | $54.67 | Sorry, Sold Out
Zero sulphur old vine Blauer Portugeiser. Wildly low yields give this wine an uncommon density and extraction. This is a rosé that flirts with being a meaty, brighter red wine – the sorta wine you chill and drink with some deep fried snacks. A good amount of zip with all those dark aromatics and red fruit.
