A truly unique, boutique Wine Club at a reasonable price -- Plonk Wine Club offers delicious, "off the beaten path" wines to give you a unique, wine tasting adventure! Discover the hidden gem wines that you'll only get with sommelier and master chef, Etty Lewenzstain, owner of the Plonk Wine Club.

Plonk Wine Club - Overall Review

Plonk is a Brittish slang term for "cheap or affordable wine". It's sometimes used, comically, as a derogatory term -- "wines that you would never serve at a white table cloth or fine dining establishment".

The fact that this company names their wine business, "Plonk", is extremely ironic, considering the amazing value you get with these wines. (It's charming and gives you a sense of the cool character of this company!)

The idea behind the company was to turn the notion of "value wine", or the concept of "cheap wine" on its head and present wines that provide a lot of bang for the buck. Moreover, they select really intriguing and unique wines, sourced from boutique wineries. So, the naming of the company, Plonk Wine Club is an ironic twist on the term of value wine.
