This mum loves nothing more than to entertain and hang out with her favourite people every chance she gets. Whether it’s a casual afternoon catch up with girlfriends, putting on an incredible spread for family lunch, or getting dressed up to host a fancy dinner party at home, she is her happiest when she can impress the people she truly cares about with food and wine. To celebrate the sparkly hostess in your life, gift her a delicious bottle of Tempus Two Sparkling Wine or Prosecco – perfect for kicking off any social gathering.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two Copper Prosecco - Made in true Italian style, our Prosecco is dry and zesty with enticing green apple, pear and citrus notes.
  • Tempus Two Copper Prestige Cuvée  - With grapes sourced from premium vineyards in South Eastern Australia, this is a luscious sparkling wine, showcasing vibrant and fruit-driven flavours.




This mum is a lover of fine wine and considers herself to be a bit of a gastronome when it comes to food. She studies the wine menu whenever she dines out and she is passionate about pairing the perfect wine with the perfect meal. To really earn brownie points with the connoisseur mum, present her with a luxurious and elegant wine crafted in small batches in the best Australian vineyards. Selecting a wine from an exceptional vintage that she can enjoy in years to come is another nice touch.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two 2018 Uno Hunter Valley Shiraz – the Uno series represents the very best of Hunter Valley winemaking. The shiraz grapes were grown in red volcanic soil in one of the region’s oldest vineyards. This wine will benefit from careful cellaring for 10-15 years.
  • Tempus Two 2018 Pewter Cabernet Sauvignon – with premium grapes sourced from a single vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia, this wine has delicious blackcurrant and dark chocolate notes that this cool climate is renowned for. Even better, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 10 years.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two Pewter, Candle and Chocolates Gift Set – includes an exquisite bottle of Tempus Two Pewter Barossa Valley Shiraz and Pewter Hunter Valley Poppy’s Block Chardonnay. The wine is perfectly paired with indulgent chocolates and a fragrant candle to truly indulge her senses.

This mum tries to soak up every bit of natural Vitamin D whenever she gets the chance. Whether it be walking, playing sport, taking the kids to the park, camping, swimming in the ocean, or just reading a book in the backyard, this mum adores the great outdoors. Gift this mum a delicious wine that she can share with friends and family at her next beach day, picnic, barbeque, or al fresco restaurant reservation.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two 2021 Copper Pinot Grigio – with fruit sourced from the revered alpines of the King Valley wine region in Victoria, this is a beautifully balanced wine that is crisp, vibrant and delicious with hints of citrus and fresh green apple.
  • Tempus Two 2020 Fleur Rosé – presented in a stunning bottle that is sure to impress, this crisp and dry rose has an elegant mouthfeel showcasing rose petal and strawberries.

This mum is conscious about her health and actively tries to lead a balanced lifestyle when it comes to food, alcohol and exercise. She enjoys wine in moderation and is mindful of how much she is consuming in relation to her broader health and lifestyle goals. Presenting her with a bottle from the Tempus Two Lighten Up series that is lower in alcohol and calories means she can have her wine and drink it too.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two 2020 Lighten Up Rosé – a light, dry rosé that is full-flavoured balanced and juicy, with refreshing notes of red apple peel, strawberry and maraschino cherry. It has 30% less calories and 37% less alcohol than the Tempus Two Varietal Rosé.
  • Tempus Two 2021 Lighten Up Pinot Grigio – this bright, zippy Pinot Grigio with citrus and green apple aromas is a modern take on traditional at a substantially lower alcohol level.


This mum is all about broadening her horizons when it comes to travel, food and wine. She is inspired by different cultures and cuisines, and she loves to try lesser-known varietals of wine. For the mum who is genuinely excited about the prospect of trying something new, tantalise her tastebuds with a delicious bottle of one of Tempus Two’s emerging varietals like Grenache or Gamay.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two 2020 Fleur Grenache – with notes of ripe strawberries with cream, cinnamon and spice, this fruit-forward wine is packaged in a beautiful bespoke bottle. It can be enjoyed lightly chilled or at room temperature, with or without food.
  • Tempus Two 2020 Copper Gamay – an expressive, luscious wine of opulent length with velvety tannins. Cherry and plum are layered through floral nuances to complement the very lightly derived oak spice.
