The Finest Five by Broadsheet and the Brown Brothers Patricia range
Wed. 22 March 2017, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
Broadsheet is holding a one-off wine and food event in one of Brisbane’s coolest locations: The Johnson, our city’s first art series hotel. Or to be more specific, across two penthouse suites with 180-degree uninterrupted views of Brisbane’s CBD.
Five of our favourite Queensland producers will show-off their amazing food – including cheese, honey and cured meats – 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.
Mussel Brothers will shuck their prizes oysters in front of you; White Gold Creamery will showcase their cheese made in the Gold Coast hinterland; Malieta Honey will show off their raw honey and beeswax in canapés; Brewbakers will bake fresh bread for you; and Maleny Black Angus Beef will offer their grass-fed beef to devour. A chef from Tumbling Stonebelow will help put together some of the dishes.
You’ll wander from penthouse to penthouse surrounded by stunning art and design; 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.
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 Queensland’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.
