Ultimate Gift Guide for Foodies, Wine Lovers and Beer Geeks15 December 2019 – posted in: Winery, Craft Ales, Restaurant, Cheese, Uncategorized

The time for giving is here. It can be tricky to come up with ideas for thoughtful presents that you know people will love to receive and enjoy. Cupitt’s has a range of ideas that would suit any foodie, wine lover or Hop Head.


Buy wine you know they will Love 

Cupitt’s has a variety of wine to suit most people’s taste. Struggling to decide what to choose? Do a bit of research about what they like to try. If you’ve only ever seen this person enjoy Shiraz, play it safe and give them a Shiraz to remember; try the famous Cupitt’s Dusty Dog Shiraz. If your gift recipient is someone who likes to stretch their palates and try something a bit more left-field, we have some excellent alternate varieties including TempranilloNebbiolo, Barbera, Fiano, ArneisPinot Gris, Viognier

If you are not sure what they drink but know they enjoy wine you can’t go wrong with a bottle of Rosie’s Rosé – the perfect summer wine, pairing beautifully with fresh prawns and sunshine.

Another option is to buy wine that you love, think of it like you are purchasing a gift for yourself. It may be one of your go-to favourites or pop into the Cellar Door and discover a new wine to love. The best bit is it is highly likely they will want to share it with you. You can tell them about your visit to Cellar Door, the story behind the wine, why you love the variety, and hopefully they will love it as much as you do.  

Finally, you can always buy a Cupitt voucher, and they can choose their wine adventure. 

For the avid Foodie 

We all know that person who simply can’t resist posting a photo of every single meal on Instagram, or plans their holidays around restaurants rather than sights, or brings multiple dishes to a dinner party and asks the host where every ingredient is sourced from? 

We call these people foodies, and if you know one, we think they will love a culinary escape at Cupitt’s Estate. 

Cupitt’s prides itself on its Estate grown and made produce. The Unique Gift Experience takes two guests on a behind the scenes tour visiting our wine cave, microbrewery, cheese making facility and the Kitchen gardens tasting the products along the way. After the in-depth tour, they can sit in the dining room and immerse themselves in a gourmet experience where our chefs take all the seasonal produce and turn it into beautiful dishes. If time is of the essence and your foodie friends like to move at their own pace – check out our new experience Food and Wine Experience for TwoTwo guests can enjoy our Wine Forage followed by a three-course meal at any time lunch and dinner

We also make a range of delicious hampers jam packed with Cupitt produce including artisan cheese, wine and beer all made in Ulladulla and other regional products. Our hampers come beautifully packaged in and are finished off with a bow, so need to gift wrap these gifts! 

Beer Gifts for the Beer Lover

Cupitt’s has been crafting beer on the Estate for 5 years, opening in December 2014, making Cupitt’s the longest-running brewery the Shoalhaven. Our beers focus on both traditional ales and exciting seasonal beers. A brewery tour is part of our Tour and Taste Experience which departs daily at 11 am. To ramp up the beer lovers experience, we have the Beer Exploration Experience for Two. This is a chance to visit the microbrewery as part of the Tour and Taste Experience, learn about the brewing process and sample a beer in the microbrewery. After the tour, the two guests will receive our Brewers Beer Tasting Paddle to sample a further four craft beers with an artisan Cupitt Fromagerie cheese board.

Have you ever heard of Barleywine? Most people haven’t, but in the beer world these are the pièce de résistance of beers, and they happen to go very well with Christmas pudding. Pop into the Cellar Door and pick up a bottle or two for your Christmas Lunch and see your beer-loving friends and family eyes light up when they see. You can also purchase Barleywine and a range of other great beers from our website shop, we recommend  The Limited Release Trio if you cannot make it to Cupitt’s soon. 

HOT TIP – for the beer and wine love why not give our Co-Ferments? These are a wine/Beer hybrid and are excellent with food. Try the Sangiovese Co-Ferment with Christmas Turkey or the Arneis Co-Ferment with Roast Pork – Yum!

We hope these suggestion are helpful but if we didn’t quite nail it, please follow up with an enquiry and our helpful team will provide some further ideas for you. Our Value Gift certificates can be used across the board at Cupitt’s for dining, experiences, beer, wine, cheese, accommodation, bar menu, merchandise; so always make an easy gift for anyone who loves coming down the South coast to the beautiful Ulladulla, Milton, Mollymook region.
