Minimum Wine, Maximum Brownie Points

Got a birthday coming up for which a bottle of wine alone is not going to cut it? Thankfully, we’ve made the solution to this dilemma our business - literally. Give the bottle of wine, and pair it with a selection of other goodies, most of which have been handpicked from small businesses local to Sydney. We are big on supporting our neighbours, and providing you with a wide array of options for the person to whom you’ve given everything to, who already has everything, or, as aforementioned, for whom a bottle of wine alone won’t cut it. 

We have been thrilled to incorporate Minimum wines in a large selection of our hampers. Matt and Lentil Purbrick are responsible for the creation of these organic, vegan wines, growing the grapes in their small family vineyard located in Goulburn Valley, Central Victoria. Their dedication to natural flavours that have involved as little human intervention as possible is evident in every bottle of vino they release. 

Here is a selection of birthday gift baskets that allow you to give the bottle of wine…and the rest.

Fruity Fiona

She’s exactly as her name suggests; fun, fruity, flirty…and probably thriving. Along with a bottle of Minimum wine - in either red or white - is a packet of Fluffe fairy floss and a block of Bahen & Co Guatemala chocolate. It;s the kind of birthday gift basket where the recipient won’t be discarding any of the contents due to complete lack of interest. 

Jittery Jess

This lovely girl contains no wine at all, but fear not! She over-compensates with six cans of Poor Toms Gin & Tonic and Negroni Spritz. So that we can call it a ‘balanced meal’, we have thrown in a block of Bahen & Co milk chocolate and a packet of Fluffe fairy floss. It ain’t for the faint hearted…or the diabetic. 

Salty Simon

Accompanying our Minimum wine is an array of goodies, savoury in nature, including Bomb Ass chilli oil, Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin salt and L’Abruzzese Squid Ink spaghetti. Gott mix your salty with your sweet, right? This wine pairs excellently with any of these cholesterol-increasing foods. 

Gourmet Greg

He is the gift to end all gifts. Guaranteed, the recipient of this classy hamper won’t get a better gift (we cannot actually guarantee this. Who’s to say they won’t receive a Ferrari?). The Minimum red or white wine is snuggly packed in with Drunken Sailor Beetroot & Gin relish, Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin salt, Bramble & Hedge Chai, Bramble & Hedge Wild Fig & Raspberry Nougat and Maya Sunny Honey: Macadamia Crunch. We told you: the gift to end them all. 

Warm Whitney

Yep, you guessed it: a bottle of Minimum red wine, packaged with its wintertime prerequisite; a Mulled Wine kit. Pairing perfectly with these are the Bahen & Co House Blend chocolate and a travel candle to boot. We haven’t included the Netflix subscription, but assume you’re not the one person on the planet who doesn’t already have one?
