It All Began With Two Families
Back in the early 1800’s, the Randall and Standish families migrated to the South Bristol area from New England. They settled in the region and grew hops and small fruit. As times changed, they concentrated more on grapes, apples, berries and dairy cattle. In the early 1900’s Elmer Standish married Anna Randall. They had two daughters, Dorothy and Doris. Doris married John Brahm Jr. They had four boys, John III, Roger, Tom and Paul. In 1971 John and Tom purchased the Randall farm. They are the great- great grandchildren of Gaius Randall, the original owner of the farm. Tom and John then began growing grapes for large regional wineries. In 1975 the larger wineries decreased their purchases from area growers. John then came up with the idea of processing grapes into juice for the home winemaker. With the long history of farming in the family they found it only appropriate to name the farm Randall-Standish Vineyards.
Randall-Standish has prided itself on producing high quality grapes and juices for the home winemakers’ market and boutique wineries, such as Arbor Hill. Randall-Standish has been on the cutting edge of introducing new varieties to its market. They were instrumental in bringing Cayuga White and Traminette to home winemakers. They are presently working with three experimental varieties and planning to reintroduce many classic varieties from a century ago.
