Brown Brothers changes its name – and we love it

It’s no secret that Brown Brothers has, for some time now, had many of the next generation of women working in the family business. So we wholeheartedly loved receiving the news that they have unveiled a brand new name! Brown Brothers has, from 1st September 2018, officially changed it’s name to Brown Family Wine Group.

Sure, our vote was for Brown Sisters. But this is the next best thing.

Ross Brown, Executive Director said, “The importance of creating an environment where each of our five incredible brands can equally thrive has never been more appropriate.”

Over 130 years the company has evolved from a single brand to a family of brands that now includes Brown Brothers, Devil’s Corner, Tamar Ridge, Pirie and Innocent Bystander.

The family says that the time is right to support each individual brand under a company umbrella that clearly links to family heritage and philosophy.

Ross Brown said “In choosing the name it was imperative that family was at the heart of it so that people could see we remain a fiercely independent family wine company that is positioning itself for generations to come.”

Many of the Brown Family members are involved in the business. While Ross Brown is Executive Director, Eliza Brown is a Board Director, Cynthia Brown is a Board Director, Katherine Brown is a winemaker and Caroline Brown is the Public Relations and Corporate Communications Manager.

Dean Carroll, Brown Family Wine Group CEO said   “It’s such an exciting time within the company and this change signifies our deep respect for what the family and company have achieved to date.  It also sets the direction for our aspirations for a sustainable future as a family wine company that authentically builds brands and leads categories.”
