The Brand family story starts with the arrival of Eric Brand in Coonawarra in 1950. He married Nancy Redman and purchased a 24ha block from the Redman family, relinquishing his job as a baker and becoming a grapegrower. It was not until ’66 that the first Brand’s Laira wine was made. The family sold 50% of the Brand’s Laira winery in ’94 to McWilliam’s, Jim Brand staying on as chief winemaker until he died in 2005. Sam Brand is the fourth generation of this family, which has played a major role in Coonawarra for over 50 years. Exports to the US, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and China.
Brand & Sons is a boutique wine producer based in Coonawarra, South Australia, focussed on producing small batch wines that highlight the flavours of the Coonawarra. Since 1852, the Brand family have distinguished themselves with their authenticity, ingenuity and determination.Â These characteristics are the foundation of a legacy which has endured for six generations, from pioneering bushman to an Australian winemaking dynasty. Brand & Sons is owned and managed by fourth generation vigneron, Sam Brand and family.
