Success is never about the individual and it cannot be achieved alone. Our company has thrived beyond four generations because of the loyalty we have to each other and the vision that binds and holds us close.
At Brown Brothers we have tradition but we are not the traditional wine company. We are steeped in our family heritage and we have a history of innovation that inspires our future direction.
Brown Brothers is one of Australia’s leading family-owned wine companies, with the family making wine in Victoria for over 120 years.
Founded in 1889 by John Francis Brown, it was under the guidance of his son, John Charles Brown, that Brown Brothers established its reputation as a producer willing to experiment with innovative grape varieties. This experimentation and sense of adventure carries across the whole business and can be seen at our cellar doors from Milawa to Tasmania.
As a key member of Australia’s First Families of Wine, the third and fourth generations of the family keep tradition alive with over 60 different wines available for tasting. The Brown family is proud to have forged a reputation, locally and abroad, as varietal wine specialists and winemaking innovators. Over the years we’ve seen many changes in the Australian Wine industry, yet the cornerstones of Brown Brothers remain constant. We’re still a family business; still hand-crafting wines.
