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.  

Due to the latest Covid-19 restrictions our Milawa Cellar Door is closed until further notice. Click here to learn more.

Although he spends most of his time fishing on the boat, our beloved family angler doesn’t mind having his photo taken every now and then, particularly when it involves a trip to the family cellar. When duty calls. #BrownBrothers
Much like producing a great bottle of wine, the un Much like producing a great bottle of wine, the uncertainty of these times has seen us roll up our sleeves and face a couple of challenges head on. 

It's certainly been a strange year, remiss of regional tourism and the familiar buzz of a bustling restaurant and cellar door... And while we had a taste of normality over the past few weeks, due to the latest stage 3 restrictions our doors will once again be closing until further notice.


Until we can welcome you back to Milawa for more home-grown food and delicious wine tastings, you can still buy your wine online. Our Online Store remains open 24/7, ensuring your favourite Brown Brothers bottle(s) can get to your door safe and sound. Head to the link in our bio or visit us online at

And for our locals - you can still get a taste of Bodee's cooking at home, with Browns to You delivering a takeaway food and wine menu 7 days a week. With tasty new dishes dropping soon, simply order online by 3pm for same-day delivery or plan your weekend meals ahead.

Lastly, to all of our friends, family and fellow businesses in Victoria... here we go again! We, like you, are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our community, and we can't wait to see you all in spring. #BrownBrothers
