With Father’s Day almost upon us, Fowles Wine, the iconic Victorian merchant, is offering gift packages that combine the thrill of the hunt with a tasteful tipple.
Before September 7 rolls around, Fowles has two options up for grabs as perfect presents in its Wild Wine Packs. The bountiful caskets are dubbed as gifts for the more adventurous man, and Fowles’ first-up temptation is the Are you Game? gun case. This package features six wines elegantly presented inside a replica antique English gun case. After a shooting outing, the array of a bottle each of Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Merlot appears highly palatable to imbibe on a return to the hunting base camp. The cost of this set is a modest $100.
Equally stylish and appealing to include every man’s ‘better half’in the great outdoor equation is the Ladies who Shoot their Lunch gun case. Available for $200, this gem comprises two bottles each of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The Fowles brand, based in Avenel just off the Hume Freeway, is confident its team has struck the right note to entice the hunting brigade.
There are also several other Father’s Day gift specials on the order board. The Father’s Day Foodie Hamper includes one bottle each of Stone Dwellers 2013 Riesling and Shiraz, a copy of Whole Larder Love, two jars of homemade chutney and a Stone Dwellers produce bag for $75 including free freight. Alternatively, there is the Father’s Day Flagship Wine Pack, which includes one bottle of The Rule 2010 Shiraz and two bottles of The Exception 2004 Shiraz for $175.
Awarded Victoria’s Best Tourism Winery two years in a row and a member of the Ultimate Winery Experiences of Australia consortium, Fowles Wine Cellar Door Cafe is the ideal setting to see Dad savour a great food and wine day out.
