The sophisticated soft packs that boldly transcend the Aussie ‘goon sack’ are the perfect fit for dinner parties.

Sharing food and wine pleasantly shifted to sharing Sophie’s styling tips for the home. We were endowed with some special tips from the French-born stylist about how to make entertaining at home a fabulous affair.

The affordable design at 1.5L, the equivalent of 2 bottles ($25), can be found in all the main bottle shops in the wine section.
