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.  

Made for all kinds of adventurous spirits, every bottle of Brown Brothers opens the door to a new wine experience coloured with excitement, nostalgia & endless possibilities. 

“Whenever a bottle of our wine is opened, an adventure starts. Whether you’re seeing friends spontaneously, sharing a meal with family or celebrating a significant milestone, the possibilities are endless – and that’s what wine adventures are all about.”

Shot in the stunning King Valley region, this brand film celebrates all that is Brown Brothers; our home, our wines, and our people. Documented through rich cinematography, movement, colour, and sound, each scene hints at a playful yet artful interpretation of ‘Brown’.

Shiraz, but make it Sparkling.

An all-encompassing style of wine that's elegant, striking and understated all at once, each year on the fourth Thursday of July we raise a glass to #Shiraz - marking the newly inaugurated #ShirazWineDay, and sharing a toast to Australia's most popular grape varietal. 

So what are we drinking tonight? 🍷

A silver medal winner at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2021, our Winemaker's Series Shiraz 2019 is a single-vineyard expression of this sumptuous and generous red, joined in recognition by the multi-award-winning Patricia Shiraz 2016. 

Proudly Australian and made with grapes grown in our Heathcote vineyards of Central Victoria, bunker down with a bottle or two this weekend, or enjoy peak drinking well into 2025.

An elevated take on comfort food: Milawa free-range chicken breast, Ross Brown’s home grown artichokes, fregola, black garlic & lardo (a type of cured salumi). 

Until we can see you again, stay warm and stay (relatively) hungry! #BrownBrothers

Despite the drop in temperature, there's never been a better time to enjoy lighter and brighter wines — like this vibrant Sauvignon Blanc from our cool-climate Tasmanian vineyards: beautifully crisp in the glass, with aromas of passionfruit and melon on the nose. 

Whether it's après ski, a Saturday night in, or you're simply looking for a wine that has less alcohol than others, the Brown Brothers Refreshingly Light range of wines is intentionally lighter (30% lower in alcohol!) yet still big on flavour.

Shop the full range on sale for 20% off online* and free shipping until 31st July. #BrownBrothers
