St Hugo x Daniel Ricciardo DR3 wines
Daniel Ricciardo has been working with St Hugo since 2015 and recently took a more hands-on approach to his winemaking. The St Hugo DR3 collaboration has been incredibly successful, with the wine brand even designing a custom-made Ricciardo glass-shoe decanter. This piece of glassware sold out in record time. Says Danny of the collab, “We have put our hearts into creating wines to be enjoyed. The process has been just as fun and enjoyable as sharing the end product. This is really something that makes you smile and appreciate the journey it takes to get there.”
Along with their exclusive dining series, Fable Melbourne offers a luxurious helicopter and dining adventure that showcases French champagne – and unbeatable views of Melbourne. The helicopter package that can be booked to pick up track-goers directly from the Australian Grand Prix. It’s already proven to be the way to leave the race post action and in utter style.
Fable Melbourne’s Rooftop Brunch with DJs and live entertainment continues throughout the summer on Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm. The cocktail-style brunch offers bottomless Grey Goose Essences Spritz’s and a chef-made banquet. Expect dishes like beetroot with stracciatella and cured yellowtail kingfish. Fable was also recently named #1 Rooftop Brunch in Melbourne by Herald Sun Delicious. Bookings can be made via fablemelbourne.com.au
