Behind the name

The township of Coonawarra has been the Brand Family home for four generations, it is a place of natural beauty providing prosperity, peace and protection. Our sanctuary amongst the vines.

A celebration of Coonawarra, hand-picked from estate-grown vineyards and matured for 24 months in a selection of French and American oak. Only barrels of the highest quality were chosen as the embodiment of regional character with intensity and balance.



The fruit for the Sanctuary is grown in the Brand family vineyards, where a specific section has been hand-tended for low yields over the last 10 years. Hand-picked with bunch selection only the most attractive berries make it to the winery.

Fermentation takes place in a 5-tonne stainless steel fermenter which it is drained down and pumped over three times per day. Additional hand-plunging is also undertaken to maximise colour and flavour. Fermented to around 2 Baume, the wine completes both its primary and malolactic fermentation in oak.

The wine is gently racked off lees several times during a 24-month maturation before each barrel is tasted and classified. Only a handful of barrels are chosen for the final blend, meeting the exacting specifications for this wine.
