Info card and opener

magazine

Each box comes with an information sheet and a complimentary issue of Imbibe magazine. I thought the magazine was a really nice touch to include. The information sheet gives tasting notes for each wine as well as some information on the winery and recipe pairing ideas. I really liked the inclusion of the recipe pairings.

White

Pierre-Luc Bouchaud Pont Caffino Muscadet 2014

I would say that I typically prefer red wines over white wines, but I loved this wine! We drank this chilled and thought it was so crisp and refreshing. Made in France, it had citrus and green apple flavors.

Red

Glass stopper

Umathum Zweigelt 2013

This red was fruity and earthy and a slight tingly feeling on the tongue, almost as if it was carbonated. The information card says this wine is fermented with yeast in oak barrels. They recommend pairing it with herb and mustard crusted rack of lamb. My husband and I thought it was so cool that the bottle didn’t have a cork. Instead it had a glass stopper; I’ve never seen that before!

Verdict:  ​I really enjoyed my first Plonk Wine Club box! I love trying new wines, especially from smaller boutique wineries. We tend to buy wines from California and Oregon so it’s nice to explore other parts of the world as well. The recipe pairings were a nice touch and I like that they included a wine opener as well. If you fall in love with one of the wines they send you can order an entire case at a 16% discount with free shipping.

What do you think of the Plonk Wine Club box? Do you prefer reds or whites?
