Your Guide to Savouring a Sober Melbourne Cup

The Melbourne Cup, an event synonymous with elegance, horse racing, and celebration, has a special place in the hearts of Australians. While many associate it with Champagne and cocktails, we're here to show you that a sober Melbourne Cup can be just as fabulous, especially when paired with Edenvale alcohol-removed wines.

Creating your sober Melbourne Cup celebration:

Step 1. Edenvale's alcohol-removed wines

Begin your Melbourne Cup celebration by selecting from our extensive range of non-alcoholic wines. From sparkling and Chardonnay to Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, there's a variety to suit every palate and preference. Explore the flavours and choose your perfect match.

Step 2. Gourmet Delights

To complement your wine selections, prepare a spread of gourmet delights. Think of a charcuterie board with an assortment of cheeses, cured meats, fresh fruits, and a selection of crackers. These elegant pairings will perfectly complement your chosen Edenvale wine.

Step 3. Invite Friends Over

Extend warm invitations to friends and family to join you in celebrating at home. Dress up in your best racing attire to create an authentic trackside experience.

Step 4. Enjoy the Races

Tune in to watch the Melbourne Cup race and immerse yourself in the thrilling horse racing action. Edenvale's alcohol-removed wines provide the perfect accompaniment as you cheer for your chosen horse and enjoy the excitement of the event.

Step 5. Toast with Edenvale

As the Melbourne Cup race concludes, raise your glasses and toast to the winner and to the time spent with friends and family. Edenvale's sparkling wine varieties can also serve as a base for delightful mocktails. Create refreshing concoctions by mixing Edenvale sparkling wine with fruit juices, garnished with fresh herbs or fruit slices.

A sober Melbourne Cup celebration can be just as enjoyable and stylish when paired with Edenvale's exquisite wine varieties. With the right wine, gourmet treats, friends and family gathered around, and a bit of friendly competition, you can create a memorable Melbourne Cup experience.
