Andrew Harris brought his own passion for wine and food to Brown Brothers when he joined the Epicurean Centre team in 1995.
Andrew came to Brown Brothers with a sound knowledge of food and wine matching thanks to a background in the hospitality industry and his travels throughout Europe and Asia where he explored some of the world’s most renowned food and wine combinations.
He furthered his intimate wine knowledge by working with the Brown Brothers winemaking team on the 2001 and 2002 vintages, before he was appointed Epicurean Centre Manager in 2002.
In 2003, Andrew accepted the new challenge of managing the Brown Brothers Cellar Door – a renowned facility that attracts up to 100,000 people every year.
It was here that Andrew’s passion for winemaking really developed, and saw him take on the extra challenge of a Wine Technology and Viticulture Degree with the University of Melbourne.
In 2006, Andrew successfully applied for the position of Wine Educator. He works on the strategic planning and delivery of wine and food seminars both within Australia and overseas, and acts as a wine consultant to our business.
In 2013, the title of Wine Educator was changed to Wine Ambassador to take into account the inclusion of the Brown Brothers Tasmanian Brands and later Innocent Bystander from the Yarra Valley.
As well as Brown Brothers, Andrew has completed vintages in Tasmania and Bordeaux.
