From the importer-
For their field blend, the brothers dropped the “mixed things”-field blend branding of the “Gemischtersatz” and went right for the “wild things” name, which is what this is: a wild gemischter. This saw a very short maceration, thus it is perhaps the most finessed and linear of all the Purs. The overall tone is bright and crisp, with fascinating ripe citrus, and darker nuts and oil tones, maybe due to the Riesling stems which were thrown into the brew. This is energetic, driven, airy and delicious. Go crazy. Pair with freshly shucked oysters and onion rings.
The family owned winery Brand in the Palatinate has been producing wines with an individual personality for five generations since 1891. In 2014 sons Daniel & Jonas took over the winery from their father Jürgen. They consistently focus on an ecological cultivation of the vineyards, “Working in nature and with nature” – this is their conviction.
The logo represents two things: you can find the hand taking an oath on the keystone of St. Martin’s Church in their village of Bockenheim and therefore it represents their emotional relationship to the region. On the other hand, the hand is a symbol for quality in the bottle and their close connection to nature.
They entirely refuse to use mineral fertilizers or pesticides. Instead they use the power of nature: plant-based remedies such as herbal extracts or teas strengthen their vines. More biodiversity helps to keep the vineyards vital and the soils healthy. Therefore they plant clover and wild herbs on their cultivated areas to attract more bees and other beneficial insects.
Together with the ideal climatic conditions, healthy and juicy grapes can grow in a natural balance and good wine can be produced in truly organic quality.
