Our Story

Domaine Serene Brandy is not just another spirit; it is an embodiment of our story at Domaine Serene. With a legacy of producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, we carry forward our commitment to quality and believe that this new venture has the potential to match, or even surpass, the great brandies of the world. 

Our Brandy benefits from being sourced from the world's finest vineyards. Domaine Serene has dedicated decades to nurturing and perfecting our vineyards, ensuring that only the finest grapes are selected. These grapes, grown on the best soils and in the ideal microclimates of the Dundee Hills, provide the foundation for our exceptional Brandy.

We employ meticulous techniques and utilize state-of-the-art facilities to ensure that every bottle of Domaine Serene Brandy reaches the pinnacle of quality. After becoming a standard in the industry for our world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay we strive to become the new standard for American Brandy.

OUR BRANDY MAKING PROCESS

Harvesting vineyards

1

HARVESTING

At Domaine Serene, our passion for crafting exceptional brandy begins with using our exceptional, award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.

Brandy barrels

FERMENTATION

After grapes are delicately hand-selected, our Brandy undergoes a three-week fermentation period to capture the essence of our fresh aromatics. We intentionally employ cold and slow fermentation techniques to draw out the full flavor profile. The sulfur-free process allows for a truly authentic taste experience. Once the juice is fully fermented and dry, it becomes wine, which is transported to our trusted distilling partners.

SMALL BATCH DISTILLATION

We then distill in very small batches, carefully nurturing each individual lot throughout their entire journey. During this meticulous process, we separate each batch, preserving their distinct qualities and characteristics. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are highly aromatic varietals with complex notes of fruit, spices, and savory characteristics. The type of still we use has a special distillation column that optimizes aromatic compounds throughout this process. This, in combination with an exceptional cooling system, is particularly adept at capturing smooth and fruity aromas.

 MATURATION

Our Domaine Serene Brandy is carefully curated using a combination of used Domaine Serene Pinot Noir barrels, and new cognac spirit barrels. We rotate the barrels to ensure that the brandy interacts with both used and new barrels. This rotation allows for the development of distinct barrel notes, which contribute to the overall flavor profile. The Domaine Serene Pinot Noir barrels primarily provide notes that highlight the influence of the wine, a key aspect for the Brandy. While the spirits barrels are designed to impart new oak aromas, soften the palate and illuminate Brandy's beautiful color. These barrels are made exclusively from 100% French oak sourced from the renowned Limousin Forest.

BLENDING AND PROOFING

At this stage, the Brandy, matured to perfection, stands proudly at cask strength, a testament to its unbridled potency and potential. It is during the subsequent three months that we embark on a gradual journey of refinement, gently proofing the spirit down with water from our very own property in the Dundee Hills.

  • Tasting Notes
    • Domaine Serene Brandy Chardonnay – 42.5% Alcohol
      • Our Chardonnay VSOP Brandy V.1 begins with the delightful aroma of ripe apricot and delicate chamomile, with a subtle presence of other stone fruits weaving throughout. The essence of pear shines through, accompanied by a delicate hint of caramel and a creamy vanilla undertone. As the flavor journey continues, the briny characteristics reminiscent of a mineral-rich ocean emerge, mirroring the signature mineral notes found in our Chardonnay.
    • Domaine Serene Brandy Chardonnay – 43% Alcohol
      • Our Pinot Noir VSOP Brandy V.1 opens with vibrant aromas of ripe mango and white peach, enticing the senses with a burst of tropical fruitiness. On the palate, there is a delightful presence of marzipan and honeysuckle that adds a touch of indulgence. This complexity is further enhanced by a subtle hint of Pinot Noir, providing depth and richness to the overall experience.

VSOP stands for "Very Superior Old Pale," and is a universal term denoting that the product uses spirits aged for a minimum of 4 years. Our Domaine Serene Brandy is aged for five years in oak barrels, enriching it with depth and complexity.. This extended aging process infuses our brandy with nuanced notes of fruit and oak, yielding a refined and sophisticated product. Domaine Serene Brandy's "VSOP" label guarantees its quality and reflects our meticulous production, delivering a premium spirit with a smoother, more harmonious taste.
