Joe Braman has made a name for himself as a Rancher, Philanthropist, Dog Trainer, Hunter, accomplished Team Roper, Chef, Winemaker, Perfectionist and proud Texan. His passion for life is reflected in every single brand that carries his name.
Joe’s family roots run deep in the rich, fertile soil of South Texas. Each generation of these renowned ranchers grew upon their success in pure “Everything’s bigger in Texas” fashion. But the most influential of them all, as far as Joe is concerned, was his grandmother Mary.
Mary O’Connor Braman hailed from Port O’Connor, Texas. With a town named after them, you’d have to expect the O’Connor family tree grew as tall as the Braman’s. Mary was first to see and develop Joe’s natural cooking talents. The time they spent together was one part learning and one part love of all things culinary, especially the importance of wines and pairings.
In her youth, Mary helped chart the reefs along the Texas coast with a lead weight tied to a string to sound the depths. So, beyond Joe’s passion for excellent wine and the art of pairing is a hereditary skill for charting new ground. It’s a life compass that has guided Joe through culinary school and some of the finest kitchens in the world.
Like Texas, Joe’s ambitions for his winery are big. There are lots of unexplored tastes in the world of wine. Braman Wines will navigate you to the best, paired with the occasion as much as to the meal.
