Brothers Damiel and Jonas Brand are the 5th generation to work this estate in southwestern Germany. They took over in 2014, and though the property was always farmed responsibly, they have taken it to the next level and eschew all chemicals, in favor of plant remedies, herbal extracts, and teas. The property is also heavy on biodiversity of flora and fauna, and interplanted with clover and wild herbs, in order to attract bees and other beneficial animals.
