Behind every great wine is the story of its origin
A contemporary evolution of our 1889 range of table wines, the Origins Series celebrates the beginnings of some of our most innovative wine varietals by bringing to life their story and sense of place. Each wine in this collection is vibrant, bold, and expressive; crowd-pleasing on the inside, with a distinctive label to match.
When the seasons change, so do our tastes and cravings. What we crave in the summer may not be what we desire in the winter; and as wine lovers, it’s important to fill our glasses according to the mood and weather, the food we eat, and the occasions we’re celebrating.
Whilst perhaps lesser-known of the Italian grape varieties, the classic hallmarks of Fiano are everything we look for in a summer white: racy acidity and a textural, savoury palate that’s bountiful and bright with delicate notes of passionfruit, lemon, and lime.
Whether you’re enjoying a vibrant Tempranillo at home in Australia or sipping your way through the streets of Spain, what you feel when you open a bottle of Origins Series is the same.
You can shop the full range online, from leading retailers, and at our Milawa cellar door.
In the hot summer months, we crave crisp and refreshing wines that are easy to drink and pair well with lighter foods. Think Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or Rosé. … perfect for picnics, barbecues, and outdoor gatherings.
They're light, fruity, and have a nice acidity that complements the warm weather.
REFRESHING, RACY AND DRY
With its spiritual home in southern France, Rosé has graced the tables of casual summer dining for centuries. A luscious palate of strawberry, watermelon, and citrus notes come together in this delightfully fresh and bright Dry Rosé.
BRIGHT, CRISP & AROMATIC
Inspired by the coastal cliffside of southern Italy, the new Origins Series Fiano is every bit as crisp and refreshing as its origin story suggests. With notes of pineapple, passionfruit and lime, this aromatic white wine pairs perfectly with light seafood dishes, creamy pastas, and daydreams of a salty sea breeze.
90 POINTS, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2023
A refreshing and crisp Chardonnay with bright aromas of stone fruit, melon, and mandarin peel. Uncluttered and clean on the palate, with balanced oak and a touch of soft, creamy nougat.

As a general rule, Shiraz – a warmer climate red wine — pairs very well with grilled meats and vegetables, making barbecue season a dream. Inherently a foodie’s wine, we tend to favour grilled lamb, salami and beef brisket – as well as softer, fleshier fish like salmon. When choosing your veg, reach for grilled asparagus or garlic-roasted broccolini, and crispy, twice-cooked chat potatoes.
When it comes to assembling your cheeseboard, you’ll find Pinot Grigio is an all-rounder; pairing well with hard cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano or aged Tasmanian cheddar, as well as silky soft burrata. A side of Sicilian olives, grilled eggplant or salted anchovies will also bring out the taste profile of a cool, crisp Grigio. For a non-meat option, try grilled portobello mushrooms!
Pasta and wine: a classic combination of flavours that simply can’t be beaten. For an easy midweek dinner, you can’t go wrong with a big bowl of spaghetti, spicy red sauce, and a juicy Tempranillo to match. Tip: don’t be afraid to add some heat; the flavours in an Amatriciana, for example, will really bring out the savoury, fruity aromas in the glass.
As the temperatures drop we start to crave tastes that are richer, bolder, and more robust. Red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Shiraz are perfect for autumn and winter months. They have a full body, rich flavours and pair well with heartier meals like roasts, bakes, and pasta dishes.
SAVOURY, FRUIT-DRIVEN & RIPE
Old world charm, stunning French chateaux, and blooming fields of lavender were the inspiration that led to Brown Brothers Origins Series Merlot. A fruit-forward wine that’s medium in body with lifted aromas of red berries, subtle licorice, and spice.
VIBRANT, RICH, DELICIOUS
The spirit of the Tango and the mountain peaks of Argentina were the inspiration that led to Brown Brothers Origins Series Malbec. Deep magenta in colour, this medium bodied red has vibrant aromas of violets and flavours of blackberries and spice.
FLAVOURSOME, RICH & RIPE
Old-world architecture and the iconic landscapes of Bordeaux’s Left Bank were the inspirations that led to Brown Brothers Origins Series Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep crimson in colour with a bright intensity of flavour and fine, savoury tannins make this wine a perfect choice for hearty roasts or aged cheddars.
