This shiraz wine bottle was given to the donor at a pre-Melbourne Cup party, sponsored by Telecom, during the 1980 Spring Racing Carnival.

The party was to raise funds for the Phar Lap Appeal, which was organised by the then National Museum of Victoria and the Victoria Racing Club, to raise funds for the Museum. All the guests at the party received a bottle of this wine.
