Brand is a famous Grand Cru vineyard in Alsace. It is situated outside of the village of Turckheim, a small, pretty town, a few kilometers north of Colmar.

The total area of Brand is 57.95 hectares. The vines are planted on steep slopes. The combination of granite soil and good sun exposure give excellent wines made from the three Alsace grape varieties riesling, pinot gris and gewurztraminer. The grape most suited to the Brand terroir is pinot gris.

The famous Domaine Zind Humbrecht makes one of the most well known wines from Alsace Grand Cru Brand.
