The Brown family has for many years been the largest independent grapegrower in Padthaway, a district in which most of the vineyards were established and owned by Wynns, Seppelt, Lindemans and Hardys, respectively. Browns has produced excellent wines and wine production has increased accordingly. The major part of the grape production is sold, and distribution of the wines in Australia has been sporadic. It seems likely that significant amounts are being exported. Exports to the UK, the US, Germany and NZ.
