The joy of wine, in all forms. For all adventures. 

At Brown Brothers, we love people. And we love how wine can bring people together. So we set out to make good wine that could do just that – and now we’re making more than 60 varieties of the stuff

After 130 years and four generations of Brown Brothers (and our many sisters) later, we may be steeped in history, but we stomp our grapes for tomorrow’s taste buds. It’s why we pioneered Moscato on this side of the world, and helped recognise King Valley as the home of premium Australian Prosecco. Blended Cabernet Sauvignon with Sumoll and called her Cienna. And set up our own micro-winery that we call our ‘kindergarten’ – where there’s a lot of playtime and hardly any rules. Because, as Ross Brown (third generation) says; ‘We are a wine company with tradition, but we’re not a traditional wine company’.

We’re proud of our wine, of each other, of those who came before us. Since 1889 we’ve been here in the Milawa region of the King Valley – and that means we’ve seen a lot of harvest seasons. Sipped a few Chardonnays in our time. Discovered some delicious new varieties, and thrown a few experiments out the window. 

Four generations of winemakers later, we’re still as excited by a new release glass of sparkling. Or that 1980 Malbec that comes out of the cellar on special occasions. Or the new favourite drop we know we’re yet to create. Because, while we’ve collected a few laurels on our bottles, we’re not even tempted to rest on them. Instead, we use them to spur us forward. To push us beyond the status quo. To keep our minds sharp and our palates fresh. To keep us making wine for more people. And to ensure it’s perfectly delicious.  

We look forward to welcoming you back to Milawa. For an update on all things Covid-19 and our Winter 2020 reopening hours, click here. To enjoy a taste of Brown Brothers at home check out our BROWNS To You Home Delivery.

One of our newest releases, this 2018 single vineyard Shiraz is elegant, powerful and generous on the palate with flavours of rich, dark berries and plenty of spice. A classic Heathcote style of Shiraz that’s a little extra special in our eyes. Bunker down with a bottle or two this winter, or enjoy until well into 2024. #BrownBrothers
