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’.

What wines are you tasting this long weekend? Our Milawa cellar door is open for daily wine flights and guided tasting experiences, over 60 varietals to stock up on and a huge range of exclusive labels to discover. Wherever your adventure takes you, we’re here for it. #BrownBrothers
With a family as large as ours, we don't often play favourites. But if we did, the iconic  SMC would be up there. A brilliant blend of Shiraz, Mondeuse & Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 vintage is the gift that keeps on giving with its rich, flavour-filled palate, and aromas of dark plums, licorice and spice. 

For those in VIC joining us in their second week of lockdown, it's fortuitous timing that our Virtual Shiraz Tasting kicks off tomorrow night - where we'll be tasting the SMC alongside our full portfolio of Shiraz wines - hosted by Andrew Harris and winemaker Geoff Alexander. Free to join and with nowhere else to be, BYO bottle of Brown Brothers Shiraz and tune into '132 Years of Shiraz Discovery' tomorrow Tuesday 8th June, via Zoom. 

Registrations close midday 8/06/2021. Link in bio to join. #BrownBrothers
