Brown Brothers

Victoria | King Valley

Our Review

Brown Brothers draws upon a considerable number of vineyards spread throughout a range of site climates – from very warm to very cool. An expansion into Heathcote added significantly to its armoury. In ‘10 Brown Brothers acquired Tasmania’s Tamar Ridge. In May ’16 it acquired Innocent Bystander and with it a physical presence in the Yarra Valley. The premium quality varietal wines to one side, Brown Brothers has gained 2 substantial labels: Innocent Bystander Moscato and Innocent Bystander Prosecco. Known for the diversity of varieties with which it works, the wines represent good value for money. Its cellar door receives the greatest number of visitors in Australia. A founding member of Australia’s First Families of Wine. Exports to all major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Located at Milawa in north eastern Victoria, Brown Brothers is a family-owned winery that produced its first vintage in 1889. Our vineyards, located throughout Victoria, have been carefully chosen to produce diverse wine styles. Within a 50km radius of Milawa, climatic conditions range from cool alpine areas to lush temperate valleys to sun-drenched plains.
When you visit our Cellar Door, you are presented with possibly the largest range of wine varieties at any cellar door in Australia. We encourage people to try new taste sensations, and this has enabled Brown Brothers to become a leader in the development of new wine varieties in Australia.
