Brown Brothers is one of my favourite wineries with a rich history reaching back 128 years of producing outstanding wines in Victoria. Founded in 1889 by John Francis Brown, Brown Brothers is the inspiration of this 18-year-old who followed his dream and established a vineyard in north-east Victoria. This dream was then continued by his son, John Charles Brown, who created a legacy of experimentation and a sense of adventure.

Handed down through the family for generations since then, Brown Brothers has become known as winemaking innovators and have a rich and wide variety of wines to suit every palate.

Born in 1915, Patricia Brown was the wife of John Charles Brown and the mother of the Brown Brothers empire. Patricia was one of those Australian women capable of everything, and while being a mum and running a household she was also completely involved in the business and integral to the success seen today.
