5 things to do for Mother’s Day this year to totally spoil Mum or yourself!

The second Sunday in May is always one to look forward to. It’s a special day where we get to focus on the wonderful women in our lives, that seriously deserve to be celebrated, supported and spoiled – of course!

Whether it’s your own Mother, Mother In Law, Aunty, Sister, friend or yourself – It’s the perfect excuse to spend the day with your special ones, enjoying time together, a little indulgence and making the most of a day dedicated to Mummas -the total queens that they are!

With a bunch of exciting events on the go, delicious food to eat and beautiful places to see, we’re sharing our top 5 things to do this Mother’s Day.

If you’re in Melbs…

The Mother’s Day Classic Fun Run

The Annual Mother’s Day Classic has been running for 21 years and counting, to support an amazing cause. It’s a morning fun run (or walk, we can assure you we would certainly be walking!) dedicated to support The Pink Ribbon National Breast Cancer Foundation raising much needed awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Research. The aim of the morning is to deliver an inspirational, fun and healthy event on Mother’s Day, and bring people together to remember those who have been touched by breast cancer. It’s the perfect opportunity to get out and about, and enjoy a walk around the beautiful Alexandra Gardens and the Tan track. It’s such a worthy cause and a great way to get active with the whole family this Mother’s Day!

A Mindful Morning Meditation Session At Greenfields in Albert Park

Two blissful hours of mindfulness with your favourite lady including guided yoga practice by Kate Henry from Yoke Yoga and a delicious nourishing breakfast spread. All whilst gazing over Albert Park Lake – how perfect!

Lunch at The Conservatory

If you’re a Melbourne local and you really want to spoil mum this year (or drop the hint to your family) we definitely suggest Mother’s Day lunch at the Conservatory at Crown. Indulgence is literally at an all time high – absolutely no diets here please. Think high end buffet style dining with all the trimmings, seafood, just about every cuisine you could ever want, a dessert bar (oh my god – amazing!) and French champagne flowing. Finish with a stroll along South Bank to (attempt) to work off everything consumed! Just lovely!

If you’re a Sydney sider…

A Day At The Gallery 

Is there anything better than an afternoon roaming the Art Gallery of NSW with your mum and seeing the latest exhibition? And what makes it even better? A spread at Chiswick, one of Sydney’s favourite restaurants. Mother’s Day is all about sharing delicious food together and of course a cheeky vino, and why not do it while enjoying the gorgeous view overlooking Woolloomooloo pier. Featuring a fresh, seasonal menu with a focus on local produce and a casual dining experience vibe! Yes please!

A casual picnic with a view

Take a long walk through the Royal Botanical Gardens or set up in Clifton Gardens in Mosman – situated right by a sandy white beach. And if you’re totally time poor, Chilterns Catering and events organise your picnic for you, blanket included! Think delicious gourmet cheeses, dips, delicious salads – all delivered to you!

Long weekends are for BBQs & a spritz in hand!

Balmy days down the coast, the smell of coconut sunscreen, afternoon picnics with friends and more time to eat dinner outdoors…Summer, you really are our absolute favourite! With the whirlwind that is the festive season well and truly over and the working year in full swing, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. At Sunday Wine Co, we’re all about a balanced lifestyle!

Long weekends are the perfect excuse to get together with your best friends, make the most of hosting a casual BBQ and of course, enjoy a tipple! To keep in line with the classic Australian summer vibe this long weekend, we have the perfect refreshment to match a simple BBQ menu or if you’re feeling a little more fancy like us, served alongside a slow-roasted lamb shoulder with lemon, garlic and rosemary marinade! While a chilled bubbles never goes a stray, we want to share our unique twist on an old favourite that we know you will love. It’s delicately refreshing with a subtle touch of citrus, the perfect addition to your long weekend and best shared with friends in the backyard. Enjoy!

Summer White Wine Spritzer with Lime & Rosemary:

Serves 4

You’ll need:

1 bottle of chilled white wine – any of the gorgeous drops in our ‘Fresh Whites’ pack would work perfectly.

1 bottle of chilled soda water

Thin wedges of lime

4 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Chill four cocktail or wine glasses in the fridge for half an hour and then place ice and wedges of fresh lime in each glass. Add equal parts soda and your chosen drop, and for our little public holiday touch, stir each spritzer with a sprig of rosemary (and garnish, of course!) Simple, refreshing and delicious. You’re welcome!

We’ve taken the guess work out of selecting beautiful wines, and in this case, our ‘Fresh Whites’ pack is all you need! Light and refreshing whites from boutique Australian and Italian wineries, with a bottle of bubbles to pop as soon as your friends arrive!

The Festive season and gorgeous drops, our perfect match!

There is a certain charm about the festive season, it’s our favourite time of year! Nothing is more special than spending time with family and friends, sharing old memories and creating new ones, over delicious food and wine – of course! 

Christmas is literally days away (we know, we can’t believe it either, what 2017?!) and is such a joyous, indulgent time of year loved by all. But when you’re hosting lunch… well, we understand it can get little hectic! Girlfriend, to get you clinking that glass of bubbles asap, we’ve put together a guide to matching our gorgeous drops with your Christmas feast.

Breaking the fast: 

Let’s be honest you’ll be up at 5:30am, the kitchen will be chaotic and wrapping paper will be everywhere! Christmas Day should always start with bubbles and we recommend a simple breakfast that will keep you full enough to get through the morning, but starts the day with a little extra *sparkle*! Champagne and croissants = a match made in heaven. Why not keep it pretty with fresh summer berries from one of our Mornington Peninsula favourites; Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm. Our personal favourite? The light, bright and fruity Range Life Prosecco, King Valley (VIC), which is part of our ‘All Bubbles’ 6 & 12 pack. 

Simple Starters:

When curating your cheeseboard #goals, aim for different flavours and textures. Think a spiced pear paste, fresh figs, soft rich cheeses and crunchy biscuits. Delicious Binnorie Dairy dill chèvre from the Hunter Valley (NSW) & the Caprino, Romano style creamy goats cheese from Main Ridge (VIC) are on our list and marry perfectly with fresh, crisp whites. We recommend a Riverland local with citrus soul and sass… Screaming Betty. A vermentino sourced from Delinqueté Wine Co and part of our ‘Fresh Whites’ pack.

Zesty, floral whites, match perfectly with smoked salmon and cream cheese, and we have the easiest, most delicious canapé to start the festive feast; Salmon pancake wraps. Just six ingredients that you can prep the night before and leave in the fridge till serving time. These go down an absolute treat with our Gran Sasso Pinot Grigio, from Abruzzo Italy, featured in our ‘Fresh Whites’ pack.

The main delight…whatever your tradition may be!

Whether you’re more of a seafood family, or you like to keep it traditional, we’ve got the perfect drops to match whatever is on the menu! A balmy Christmas day and seafood are the dream team and if this is more your style, Manettas Seafood in Sydney deliver straight to your door. Meaning  less time spent at the market! Our perfect match? Krinklewood Wild White from Hunter Valley (NSW). This delicious drop is a biodynamic, refreshing white wine, as featured in our ‘Fresh Whites’ pack.

 

If you’re keeping to the classics with traditional baked ham and turkey, put your little twist on it with modern, seasonal salads. We’re drawing inspo from Hetty McKinnon’s ‘Community’ book and her salad recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen. When pairing with reds, keep it light and fruity. We suggest the Glaezter-Dixon Nouveau Pinot, Coal Valley (TAS) included in our ‘Relaxed Reds’ pack.

The sweetest finish:

We know it’s almost impossible to fathom dessert by the end, but ’tis the season for indulgence, right?! Of course there is always room for a traditional fruity plum pudding, best matched with a richer drop. Or delight your fam with something a little different with Donna Hay’s brandy-maple ice cream panettone, seriously delicious. Both sweet treats relish perfectly with Pacha Mama Shiraz from Heathcote, a medium bodied drop with an intense fruity flavour of freshly crushed raspberries and subtle oak, and part of our ‘Relaxed Reds’ pack.

If you order by December 17 (Free Aus wide metro delivery), or last minute orders by December 20 for Melbournians only, we’ll ensure to deliver by the 25th, straight to your door. So you can tick drinks off your extensive preparation list!

We’re wishing you a very Merry Christmas, spent with your loved ones, a little too much food and delicious wine!

A Mornington Peninsula jewel & why we’re loving Even Keel wine!

Showcasing: Polperro by Even Keel 

Is there anything better than a Sunday drive to the casual and cool Mornington Peninsula with your best gal pal? Gazing at lush greenery and abundant vineyards, with a glass of vino in hand, is our kind of heaven.

Heading south of the hustle and bustle of Melbourne’s CBD in Red Hill wine country,  you’ll find amongst a tranquil landscape, Polperro Winery. The property contains a cellar door, restaurant, and a cosy place to stay the weekend. This intimate space is interiors rich, full of rustic and moody tones, creating an earthy and inviting atmosphere inspired by the Even Keel wine label, which couples perfectly a locally sourced, seasonal menu.

Even Keel Wine label and Polperro Winery owner, Sam Coverdale, has produced wines throughout Australia and internationally. His focus is on using sustainable and bio-dynamic practices and creating well-balanced wines that are easy-drinkers, with character and balance.

Sam believes that great wines are grown not made (wise words Sir!), and is passionate about creating elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass, reflecting the wine region they’re made from.

Polperro Winery can be enjoyed no matter the season. During the winter months, we’ve enjoyed the cosy retreat for long lunches, a bottle of 2016 Mornington Peninsula pinot noir and the outdoor fire pits. As it heats up, we’re looking forward to balmy afternoons on the deck, a cheese board and a cheeky glass (or two) of 2016 sangiovese rosé.

The Even Keel by Polperro Rosé features in our Pretty Pinks (available in 6 & 12 packs) & rosé gift pack. This delicious drop is  handpicked, whole bunched pressed and gently made. Yay for rosé! This drop is made for summer drinking, a dry style with a hint of red berry fruits and rose, and a crisp refreshing finish. We suggest to pair it with a charcuterie plate, your best girlfriends, and a fine day. We recommend a Sunday drive to Polperro By Even Keel for an afternoon of vinos, quality service, gorgeous food & better company. We’ll cheers to that!
