BESTOW & CO POP-UP BOUTIQUE & WINE TASTING EVENT | SATURDAY MAY 11TH 1PM – 3PM

Beautiful designer and vintage clothing. Wine & gourmet cheese. One afternoon. All for a good cause.

The Fine Wine Group are delighted to be partnering with the amazing women from Bestow & Co and Kerry one of our fab wine suppliers to bring you a special pop-up boutique & wine tasting event that will assist in raising funds for Lou’s Place, an organisation supporting women & their children.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the inspiring women behind Bestow & Co, Kylie & Lara, at a pop-up boutique where you will be able to buy direct off the rack the designer & vintage clothing & accessories the pair have lovingly curated. As you peruse the racks, enjoy a wine tasting run by Kerry and delicious gourmet cheese selected from Penny’s Cheese Shop.

What makes this event so special is that all profits will be going to a grassroots organisation supporting disadvantaged women & their children. We’re also encouraging all members and their guests to make donations of their own preloved designer & vintage clothing, shoes and accessories to Bestow & Co.  Simply drop off your donations during our event, or if you’re unable to make it, drop them off to any of our three Fine Wine stores any day of the week.  Our team will ensure your goodies get to Kylie & Lara so they can be repurposed in support of a very important cause.

We hope you can join us for this incredible afternoon run by women in support of women; an afternoon of shopping, wine & cheese and helping those less fortunate than us in our Tasting Room at Bayswater Fine Wines located at 77 Bayswater Road Rushcutters Bay.

The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation

The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation

“For the first time in 16 long and too-lonely years I have someone to talk to. Now, I have friends. And a reason to keep going.”

Curtis’ battle with HIV isolated him for too many precious years. However, it was through the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation’s health and well-being program that Curtis was able to reach out and become connected, supported and healthy once again, transforming his life.


Australia’s longest running HIV charity has provided support and refuge to thousands of vulnerable people living with HIV over the last 34 years. It has become their mission to limit the challenging circumstances of such an unrelenting disease. Through providing direct financial and practical assistance, emotional support, financial counselling, housing, and study and employment support, the BGF helps people to find a new sense of hope and assistance to get back on their feet. This not-for-profit organisation ensures people from all walks of life living with HIV are welcomed into an open, safe and inclusive environment, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, religion or sexual orientation. Through responding to the diverging needs of their clientele, the BGF is constantly adapting to the changing face of HIV.

The foundation originated after the death of Bobby Goldsmith, one of the first AIDS related deaths in Australia. Bobby was an active member of the gay community as well as a respected Australian athlete and dearly loved son, brother, partner, friend and uncle. Although it has been 34 years since his death, HIV and the social stigmas attached are still present, despite being a virus that anyone can contract. The BGF are constantly working to reverse the physical and emotional damage inflicted by the unforgiving virus by addressing social isolation and economic poverty to allow for healthy living.

No one should have to face HIV alone. For the month of February during Mardi Gras Festival, we will have a donation tin at the counter to collect donations to this incredible organisation. Want to do more? You can also donate at: http://www.bgf.org.au/donate/give-now/
