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. 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. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Brown Brothers has a mini-winery, the Kindergarten, dedicated to assessing new winemaking techniques, reassessing traditional methods, exploring new vineyard sites, wine styles and varieties, and feeding back information to the company's Viticulture and Marketing teams. Many of these experimental wines have now become widely available - wines such as Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato and Tarrango were all initially trialed in the Kindergarten. Brown Brothers continues to lead Australia in producing innovative and exctiting new wines.

Cellar Door


Brown Brothers produces many individual wines of high quality, but in quantities too small to make available for general release. These have become a special feature of Cellar Door, and are released under the Cellar Door label. Visitors to Milawa can try these wines available nowhere else, from a range which includes limited releases of new varietals, experimental batches and optimum aged wines.

Cellar Door is the ideal place for a leisurely tasting where our informative and friendly staff can guide you through the entire Brown Brothers range.

By prior arrangement, Brown Brothers can cater for large groups and offers hosted tastings, tours or a structured group tasting and tuition.

Bookings are required for premium tastings.

Closed Christmas Day and Good Friday.


Open 7 days a week, 9am - 5pm. Hosted tastings | Bookings highly recommended | Walk-ins welcome
