The Finest Five by Broadsheet and the Brown Brothers Patricia range

Fri 17th March, 2017
Converted Church
278 Gore St, Fitzroy
Price: $65
A roaming food and wine celebration showcasing the best local family produce to launch the new-release Patricia wines.

Broadsheet is holding a one-off wine and food event in one of Melbourne’s most unique locations: a stunning converted church in Fitzroy, built in 1860.

Update: This event has sold out.

Five of our favourite producers from across Victoria will show-off their amazing food – including cheese, mussels, pasta, cured meats and beef – paired with five wines from the award-winning Patricia range. We chose the best family-run producers to stand alongside wines by Brown Brothers – a family-owned winery in Milawa.

Harry the Mussel Man is leaving his dock on Flinders Pier to shuck local mussels in front of you; Milawa Cheese will offer a unique take on one of their most-famous blue cheeses; Salt Kitchen Charcuterie will provide cured meats such as French dry-cured ham or guanciale; Yarra Valley Pasta will show you how to perfect your dough rolling technique over a bowl of fresh pasta; and Milawa Beef will show off their organic Angus beef.

You’ll wander from room to room under the high ceilings; going back to the producers you love the most and indulging in a little more of your favourite drop.

The evening celebrates the launch of the new-release Brown Brothers Patricia wines – you’ll be first to taste them – but it’s by no means a standard wine tasting.

What’s included?

A glass of each of the new-release Patricia wines including Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Noble Riesling. Each will be matched with delicious food from five of Victoria’s best local producers. You’ll also gain insights from the producers and family members throughout the evening.

More about the wine

The wine range is named after Patricia Brown, the matriarch of the Brown family. Not only did she run the household at the Milawa winery from 1939, she also travelled to promote the business, worked in the cellar door and led the exploration of wine flavours and food pairing within the business.

To celebrate and recognise her hard work and support, Brown Brothers releases its latest Patricia wines each year on her birthday, March 17. Only the best-version varietals can sit under the Patricia label. Every wine is held to a very high standard. If it isn’t up to scratch, it doesn’t get released that year.
