Brown Brothers is one of Australia’s leading family-owned wine companies with experience in crafting wine since 1889. We have four generations of family involvement in our business and we are proud of our local Milawa heritage. While heritage is at the heart of our brand, we are far from a traditional wine company. Our affinity for innovation and experimentation has driven our direction.

We have established a reputation as a winery that challenges the status quo by developing new grape varieties and partnering with the CSIRO to support ongoing viticulture research. We are a key member of Australia’s First Families of Wine (AFFW) and are 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 remain a family business; hand-crafting wine.

TASTING NOTES
This current release sparkling wine has an attractive pale green-gold colour with fresh, lively aromas of pear and apple. The wine explodes in the mouth – a soft creamy feeling that is a direct result of the very fine bubble. The green apple flavours carry through to the palate with lemon citrus notes accompanied by
soft creaminess and a delicate and refreshing acid on the finish.

Serving Suggestions
This wine makes an ideal aperitif or as an accompaniment to a range of appetisers.
Delightful with natural oysters drizzled with a lemon juice. It would also be ideal with smoked salmon and caviar blinis. Try it with shallow fried calamari with a lemon and dill mayonnaise.

TASTING NOTES
While this wine retains the freshness and vibrancy that Prosecco is known for, the fruit for this NV release was picked later to provide a softer, rounder palate full of crisp citrus notes.

Serving Suggestions
Prosecco is a great drink to kick off an evening and enjoy throughout the night. While delicious on its own, it is also perfect with sushi and sashimi. Prosecco is also excellent with charcuterie and marinated olives, or why not try it with a light brie cheese.

TASTING NOTES
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cool climate Tasmanian vineyards. It is a vibrant colour with green hues and has aromas of melon and passionfruit with hints of freshly cut grass. These characters follow through to the palate with racy acidity. This refreshing wine is true in style to its cool-climate origin and is best consumed when young and fresh.

Serving Suggestions
This flavoursome dry white wine makes a delicious accompaniment to prawn rice paper rolls with a soy dipping sauce. Or why not try it with a traditional caesar salad. Also, the Sauvignon Blanc in France is often enjoyed with the salty and high acid goats cheese of the northwest.

TASTING NOTES
A wine of universal appeal, the 2017 Moscato is beautifully clean with a light straw colour and some youthful green tinges. The nose is lifted with aromas of musk, citrus and freshly crushed grapes. In the mouth, the wine is alive with a vibrant and mouth filling sherbet flavour. The retained natural carbon dioxide from fermentation gives a mild frizzante effect resulting in a lively and fresh wine. Serve well chilled and enjoy while young and vibrant.

Serving Suggestions
This versatile wine is an ideal accompaniment to any occasion whether it is served with or without food; as an aperitif or table wine. Try it with a platter of soft cheese and fresh slices of Granny Smith apple. Or for something different, Brown Brothers Moscato is fantastic with Vietnamese rice paper rolls. The aromatic lift of Moscato complements the spices while the sweetness balances the chilli heat.

TASTING NOTES
Reminiscent of the vibrancy, passion and energy of Spain, this wine is a smooth, fruit-driven red wine balancing notes of blackberry and plum with delicate spice. 

The Origins Series Tempranillo has been developed in our “Kindergarten Winery” – a mini winery focused on trialling small batches of new varieties and different winemaking techniques. 

Serving Suggestions
In Spain, wine and food are taken seriously and this Spanish varietal will make the perfect match for a wide array of traditional Spanish dishes such as paella and tapas, as well as some classic Australian meals. The 2018 Tempranillo is also a great match with spicy salami pizza topped with capsicum, capers, olives and cheese.

TASTING NOTES
Made as a fruit-driven drink-now style with generous flavours, this delicious cool-climate Tasmanian Pinot Noir can also be cellared confidently for up to three years.

A strongly perfumed style redolent of spicy black cherry, dark fruits and hints of raspberries.

Serving Suggestions
A versatile food wine that can be enjoyed with light or heavy dishes. Try this with pan-fried duck breast with roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Or serve it with venison that is drizzled in a red wine and black pepper jus.

TASTING NOTES
Highlights of pears and tropical fruit, alongside some spice and savoury notes. This fresh and lively wine is made with estate-grown Pinot Grigio from our Hazards vineyard located on the East coast of Tasmania.

Perfect to sip on while enjoying fresh Tasmanian seafood; think of oysters, sashimi or just an afternoon aperitif.

Serving Suggestions
Serve with crumbed and grilled sardines and a squeeze of lemon. Also try it with a large smoked trout ravioli that is finished in a pan with olive oil, capers and some diced chilli.
