At Plonk Wine Club we specialize in bringing our members an expertly curated selection of artisanal, small-batch, and sustainably grown boutique wines from inspiring and diverse wine regions around the globe. Our monthly wine club shipments feature natural wines that are grown using organic and biodynamic methods, which means no pesticides or commercial additives such as colorants, acidifiers, artificial sugars, alcohol enhancements, or chemicals of any kind. These are real, authentic wines made by passionate farmers, not by industrial manufacturers or boardroom executives from large wine industry conglomerates.
We are deeply committed to featuring adventurous wines made from fascinating, lesser-known grapes that reflect their specific place of origin as well as the devoted people who hand-crafted them. We taste through hundreds of wines in order to identify the special bottles that deserve your attention, tell a unique story, transport you to a far-off destination, and that will teach you something new with each sip.
Our cutting edge wine of the month clubs can be purchased as personal subscriptions or as gifts and are perfectly suited for wine enthusiasts and novices alike. Once you purchase a wine club subscription or a wine club gift, your shipments will automatically arrive on your or your gift recipient’s doorstep, which means no work on your end. All of our shipments include detailed descriptions and tasting notes for each of the featured wines as well as delicious recipe pairings, since after all, great wine is meant to accompany great food!
