We have been making toys since our first child Ria was born in 2019. The reason was simple, we wanted to give her the best toys that are made from the nature and non-toxic. My husband once said if we could grow our own tree, we would.
As days went by, we started creating and making toys for our families and friends, without the mind of selling, every piece we create, we just want the kids to cherish and love forever. Since then, this has become our dream, to create the best wooden toys that are toxic free.
So here we go, Riababy was born, right here in Melbourne. We deisgn our own, engage local craftsman and we choose the purest, raw and unprocessed timber.
We love what we do.
Introducing the new wave of South Australian (de-alc) wines, Polka sparkling is a purposeful selection of 11 white wine varietals from the Riverland and the wild native Lilly Pilly. The astringent notes of lilly pilly allow for a dry, full flavoured de-Alc sparkling that pairs with seafood and opens the mind to modern de-alc wine making.
We don't have a rich history in wine. What we do have is a solution to a problem. What do you drink when you're not drinking alcohol? Water? Yes. Lemonade? Mmm. When the need strikes for something more, have a POLKA drop. We are here with adult drinks that won't turn on you and leave you in bed til 12pm on a Sunday. They will however satisfy your tastebuds and keep the perennially boring question 'why aren't you drinking?' safely answered.
Non-alcoholic wines have a less than charming history. Nothing close to resembling wine was all that was available until the recent advent of de-alcoholising equipment. This technology allows us to select vintage wines with particular flavour and texture characteristics that survive the natural de-alc process. Like any wine, the secret is in the region which is why we've chosen riverland, South Australian wine and characteristically dry native botanicals.
