About Domaine Brand & Fils
Domaine Brand, Alsace, France, was founded by Lucien Brand in 1956.
At that time, the farm grew several crops. There were over 15 hectares of wheat, tobacco and pastures for livestock, with just 53 acres of vines. It gradually began to specialize in viticulture, allowing the vineyard to expand over the other areas until 1970.
Later Charles Brand sealed the estate’s reputation by vinifying the premium dry wines popular with locals.
In 2001, he revolutionized the production methods, launching a three-year conversion period and having his vineyard certified organic.
Philippe partnered his father in 2006, injecting a new impetus into their company, which they renamed Domaine Brand & Fils.
In 2015, a new direction was taken: as Philippe wanted to go further in their journey, he obtained Biodynamic Agriculture certification from the organization Demeter. He also took the opportunity to extend the range of Natural Wines.
About Meet Your Maker
Meet Your Maker is a continuing series of evenings spent with some of our favourite winemakers. Designed to buck the trend of formal winemaker dinners, MYM is a way to provide our customers with a casual and fun way to meet the winemaker while they themselves hang out at Midfield, eating and drinking, pouring their wines and chatting with anyone who cares to chat with them. MYM is a non-ticketed event; come for dinner, come for a snack or just drop by for a drink. While this is a non-ticketed event, space is usually limited so we recommend making reservations if you are coming in for dinner. Cheers!
