The Web's Best Source for Weeknight Wine: Plonk

plonk_1_061011.jpg

It's the rare wine shop that focuses exclusively on bottles that are affordable, eminently drinkable, and need no occasion to uncork. But Plonk (www.plonkwinemerchants.com), a new online emporium, is devoted to unsung gems from around the world — all under $30. Its tightly curated stock of approximately 150 wines is full of underappreciated offerings like Attila Gere Cabernet Sauvignon from Hungary and Gentilini Robola from Greece, lesser-known Italian grapes like Cesanese and Gaglioppo, and overlooked knockouts from established regions (e.g., Argentina and Washington State) and emerging areas (think Croatia and Slovenia) alike.
