Wine is meant to be shared and enjoyed with others, so during these physically-distant times, BRAND Napa Valley is spreading the love to deserving first responders around the country. In an expression of deep gratitude for keeping our communities safe, the Pritchard Hill winery has launched #FromBRANDwithLove.

With your purchase of a $150 “BRAND Care Package” ($300 value), you’ll receive a bottle of prestigious 2016 BRAND Napa Valley BRIO Red Blend — an estate produced Bordeaux-style Red Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot — for you and for a first responder of your choosing, who will receive an identical bottle at no cost to them. Simply purchase your “BRAND Care Package” from the BRAND Napa Valley website, nominate your first responder, include a personalized gift message, provide shipping information for you and your nominee, and leave the rest to BRAND! (Limit three packages per person. Wine ships in approximately 5-7 business days.)

“We are well aware that first responders are in need of so much right now,” says Christine O’Sullivan, co-proprietor of BRAND Napa Valley. “While wine is not a necessity, we hope it provides a token of our gratitude for their long days of selfless sacrifice and service. We work hard to craft this wine, and they work hard to protect our health and safety. We raise a glass to our first responders.”

About BRAND Napa Valley
Founded in 2009 and acquired in 2019 by long-time Napa Valley grape growers and former Apple executives Jim Bean and Christine O’Sullivan, the BRAND Napa Valley estate sits on a stunning 110-acre property atop Pritchard Hill. A total of 15 planted acres are organically farmed and thoughtfully cultivated, with a total of 16 individual vineyard blocks curated to 13 different rootstock and clonal combinations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. BRAND Napa Valley produces three red flagship wines—BRAND Cabernet Sauvignon, BRAND Proprietary Blend, and Brio Red Wine—alongside the recently released BRAND White Wine. In 2020, biodynamic practices were initiated because Brand believes what is below the ground should be as full of life as what grows above.

Director of Winemaking Philippe Melka has been involved in BRAND from its inception and is highly involved in all aspects of farming and winemaking. Winemaker Matt Johnson, who works closely with Philippe, cultivates and creates BRAND wines that express the distinctive beauty of this estate. The winery, designed by Architect Juan Carlos Fernandez, exemplifies environmentally sensitive designs and aligns with BRAND’s focus on sustainability. Guests can schedule tours and tastings by appointment. For more information, please visit
