Brand & Sons – The Last Sunday Drive Cabernet Franc
Summer ‘73 and a rusty bulldozer rumbled into life, signalling the end of ‘the colony’ and a distinct lowering of the Coonawarra skyline.
For almost 90 years, South Easterners flocked to Coonawarra for a Sunday drive to collect the bountiful apricots, apples and pears which grew on the famed red Terra Rossa soil.
But as the favour of wine increased, the fruit trees were felled and on a warm summer day in 1973, the last commercial orchard on the property of E & N Brand & Sons was demolished.
