Overview

Brown Brothers Milawa Cellar Door is the nerve centre of new ideas and experimentation within Brown Brothers winery and is the perfect environment for tasting new varieties and wine styles. We grow many varieties of grapes and have an experimental research winery, the Kindergarten, where we produce wines of high quality, but in quantities too small to make available for general release. These are released under the Cellar Door label and are available nowhere else. The range includes limited releases of new varietals, experimental batches and aged wines. Adjacent to the Cellar Door at Milawa, Patricia's Table is a restaurant where you can enjoy a la carte dishes created with local produce to complement Brown Brothers wines. The restaurant has been awarded one star in the Australian Gourmet Traveller 2013 Restaurant Awards and rated 14.5 Out of 20 by The Age Good Food Guide 2013. We also have a relaxed food and wine venue This relaxed environment also provides a space where visitors can spend few hours grazing the menu and working through wine flights and back-vintage tastings.

Yep of us visited Brown Bros Winery at Milawa today and tasted some very good wines in a beautiful tasting room, purchasing the sparkling Rose and the Pinot Grigio, both reasonably priced.
