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’.

First made by John Charles Brown in 1954 and a favourite to this day, the Brown Brothers Shiraz Mondeuse and Cabernet (SMC), is a blend with considerable concentration with formidable aging capabilities.

Still made using John Charles Brown's methods, this wine lives on in the 2013 vintage. #BrownBrothers

Not only reserved for the warmer months, Cienna's light and fruity flavours make it the perfect partner to a wide variety of dishes. A style of wine unique only to Brown Brothers, it's a delightfully fruity drop that's versatile enough to pair with everything from spicy Chinese hot pots, to mouth-watering meringue with mixed berries and fresh raspberry coulis. #BrownBrothers
Our favourite Merlot moments look like this. Inspired by charming chateaux and blooming fields of lavender, our Brown Brothers Origins Series Merlot is a fruit-forward wine that’s medium in body with lifted aromas of red berries, liquorice and spice. Best paired with your favourite hard cheese and a Frenchie called Jeff. #BrownBrothers
It’s during this time of year that regional tourism thrives; when the leaves are tinted in shades of burnt umber and gold, and the country air welcomes the familiar chill of winters in June. Home to an impossibly scenic High Country, delicious local produce, and history so vast and rich you can explore it by land or sky, northeast Victoria has also long been synonymous with some of Australia’s most loved wineries.
