Cellar doors open

Cellar door tastings

The King Valley is open to visitors from Regional Victoria and hopefully we can see everyone else from Melbourne and interstate soon.

We have capacity and distance restrictions at our cellar doors and restaurants and all wineries will continue to follow COVID-19 health protocols...please support them in this for your own safety and that of others.

As we have the information to hand, we will add details to each winery's section below. Also please check their individual websites and social media for latest news...

Brown Brothers

Steeped in family heritage and tradition, Brown Brothers has a history of innovation that inspires their future direction. As a key member of Australia’s First Families of Wine, the third and fourth generations of the family work in the business to keep the Brown tradition alive.
