  • Background

    Our Duppy Conqueror label represents a lighthearted wing of our Brown Estate wine family. The
    name is taken from a surrealist drawing made by our Uncle Buntin in the 1970s, an excerpt of
    which graces the bottle. In Afro-Carribbean cultures a duppy is a menacing ghost or spirit, and a
    duppy conqueror essentially is one capable of vanquishing such forces. In Jamaican folklore the
    term connotes—and conjures—superhero powers. We hope these wines will have a similar effect.
