Bought by accident - on the list for the future!

AdvantagesWonderful fresh flavour

DisadvantagesDearer than my normal red wine choice

"...all will be revealed ........ About Brown Brothers? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Brown Brothers was founded by a John Francis Brown, in Australia, who initially had no experience in winemaking. John Francis was very ambitious and after successfully managing his first 10 acres of vineyard in the late 1800s was keen to plant more. There was a theory that the future of exporting wine was unlimited so in 1890 the Austrailian Government offered £2 an acre ..." Read review

The first vines were planted on a ten acre plot in 1885 and the first customers, local Italian tobacco workers.

Brown Brothers Tarrango

AdvantagesEasy and light to drink

DisadvantagesMaybe too light-bodied for those who like a gutsy wine

"I think suesie and laramax have probably pretty much covered a lot of the factual stuff about this wine, with an impressive amount of research into the bargain! I just wanted to include my views on this wine, especially as it is a little bit special to me, being one of my late grandad's favourite wines. I first came across this wine because of a little challenge presented to me by a friend - to find her a red wine to drink that didn't cause her ..." Read review

Scrummy yummy chilled red wine

AdvantagesA red wine with a difference


"Brown Brothers 'Tarrango' is one of my favourite red wines. It is an exceptionally light and drinkable wine (so no need for food- quaff it on its own!) and it really is delicious when lightly chilled, which I do like in a red. Chilling a red wine often suppresses all the different flavours and undertones but chilling Tarrango seems to bring out its fruitiness. Tarrango has a soft, light taste without the heaviness of, say, a Merlot or a Cabernet Sauvignon. ..." Read review
