No Mother’s Day brunch is complete without a toast to the person to whom you owe your very existence. Rather than reaching for the French, why not raise a glass filled with local sparkling. Your go-to is House of Arras – home to Australia’s most-awarded sparkling winemaker Ed Carr, it’s Australia’s most-awarded sparkling wine brand, earning 96 trophies and more than 250 gold medals across domestic and international wine shows. Arras Origin South Brut Cuvee NV is a Tasmanian sparkling with a bright complexity made from a variety of cold climate grapes. It’s a beautiful (and budget-friendly!) way to celebrate your beloved Mum.
