$58.00 Sale Save

An uncommon blend of chardonnay and pinot blanc is a classic example of how Philippe at Domaine Brand & Fils continues experimenting and is all about pushing the limits of his family winery.

Apollinaire is an elegant wine with complex notes of pineapples, apricots, pears, floral notes and caramel benefitting from prolonged ageing.

Pairs beautifully with cheeses, fish based dishes with a light cream sauce or simply on its own. 

*Natural wines like Apollinaire are unfiltered and might appear cloudy, this is intended by the winemaker and does not negatively affect the wine's quality.

Domaine Brand & Fils by Charles & Philippe Brand in Alsace, France

Domaine Brand & Fils was founded by Lucien, Philippe’s grandfather in 1956 in Egersheim, in the northern part of Alsace. Initially the farm of 15 Hectares with several different crops such as wheat, tobacco and pastures for livestock only about 10% or 1.3 Ha was reserved for vines. They started to specialise in viticulture in the 1970s. Philippe’s father, Charles, then decided to specialise in premium dry white wines. It became increasing popular with the locals and in 2001, they took on a three year conversion period to have the vineyard certified organic.

In 2006, Philippe then joined his father and gave the winery a new direction naming it Domaine Brand & Fils, translating to Domaine Brand and sons. In 2015, Philippe decided to go a step further and have the winery certified biodynamic by Demeter (one of the biodynamic certifying bodies based in America and Germany)

Today Philippe continues to push on with his original intention creating a range of very outstanding natural wines, experimenting with methods such as Solera and using Amphora.
