Spring could almost have sprung from this glass of Chateau Haut Brion Blanc, one of the world’s truly great white wines - “rich and intensely concentrated, fresh and refreshing, with aromatics of grapefruit, lemon peel, crushed rocks, flowers, honey and melons, the texture reminds you of electrified silk.”

Can you believe that the Napa Valley Grgich Hill’s Estate’s Chardonnay beat the best in France at a 221-world entry Chardonnay Shootout in 1976? Since then, the winery has consistently produced world-class wines with some of the grapes being traced all the way back to Croatia, the original home of the 95yo winemaker Mike Grgich. @grgichhills

Lebanon’s Château Musar has an international cult following. According to Paul Gricco, owner of the Terroir restaurants in New York “these are no ordinary wines . . .it is so hyper-unique that you could not sit on the fence with that wine at all.” Some call the wine funky - imperfect but human - much like the dynamic, larger-than-life winemaker Serge Hochar who certainly understood humanity having lived through war and constant turmoil in his country.

For millennia, Georgians have fermented wine in beeswax-lined clay jars called qvevri made by craftsmen. Winemakers bury the jars up to the neck and use them for generations. (National Geographic, February 2017)
You might just end up a wine buff after reading this juicy tale - part detective story, part wine history. It is the true story of one of the world’s most expensive wines - Chateau Lafite - made in 1787 and purportedly owned by Thomas Jefferson. Sold at auction for $156,000, the story follows its fascinating trail and the eccentrics whose lives intersected with it.
Was it all a con?
This is really going back to nature - wine bottles wrapped in vine leaves!
According to the Spanish designer Eduardo del Fraile, “the concept of the ‘Leaf’ project is to reuse the leaves that are cutoff during the pruning and use them as they mature on the skin of the bottle. The leaf becomes the label. By substituting the paper, we talk about the origin of the product, introducing the client to the denomination and culture of the wine he or she is going to drink.”
Did you know that the mushroom shaped corks in champagne and sparkling wine bottles develop because of the pressure and the corks absorbing the carbon dioxide in the bottles? When the corks are first inserted in the bottles, they are straight. The wire cages (muselets) that encase the corks on the top are a precaution against the corks popping out due to the high pressure inside the bottles. People have been known to lose an eye from corks shooting out of the bottles at some 30mph. Ideally, when opening a bottle of champagne, there should only be a whisper or a sigh and never a dramatic loud pop. Just ease out the cork slowly using a towel to maintain a firm grip and to ensure your control of the process. This way you won’t lose any of the precious champagne. Santé!
That’s easy - Le Plonc lets you “think” outside the bottle as much as you want @ $7 per glass of wine. See our great selection.
Japanese Sake - when wine is not all about grapes!
Sake is a Japanese rice wine made by fermenting rice that has been polished to remove the bran. Unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in the fruit, sake is produced by a brewing process more akin to that of beer, where starch is converted into sugars which ferment into alcohol. Unless diluted with water, it has a much higher alcohol content than wine or beer.
Lunar Goriška Breda - Movia Winery
A biodynamic wine from Slovenia made from Rebola grapes picked by hand and then left to ferment for 8 months. It is a natural amber-coloured wine with no sulfur dioxide. According to head sommelier at “Gwen” restaurant in LA, Fajardo Zambrano, the wine is “mysterious, alluring, delicious and the closest you will get to drinking wine from ancient times today.”
The party is always in full swing at Le Plonc Wine Bar. Why not come and try some sparkling wine @$7/glass or any of our other wines for the same price. Also delicious food. Open from 11am till late every day.

And you thought you’d seen everything! Blue wine landed on US soil just 7 months ago after the Spanish company Gik ran into a spot of bother with the EU’s oenological rules about authorised colours of wine. It was pulled from the shelves, but eventually was allowed to return to the market on the proviso that it changed its signifier to “alcoholic beverage”.
The drink gets its colour from indigo dye and a compound derived from the skin of red grapes called anthocyanin.
It seems the US is not so bothered and the company has been allowed to call it wine.

Tinto Pesquera Crianza is made by Alejandro Fernandez, one of the superstar winemakers of Spain. It is a world famous wine made from the Tempranillo grape (Tinto Fino) which Robert Parker in the 1980s called the ‘Petrus of Spain’. When a Petrus is out of reach for most people, this wine is sure to be appreciated by the most demanding of palates and at a much more affordable price too.
“Restaurant Takeover” - Three winemakers took over Portland’s Davenport Restaurant to host and cook dinner so that each dish would be specifically tailored to go with their wines. Maggie Harrison (who co-owns Oregon’s Antica Terra winery) said: “you could see this natural progression from one wine to the next, from one course to the next.”

Clown Bar, Paris - Here, the wines are heavily natural with good options by the glass and the bottle. In fact, it is the hottest address right now, especially with its inspiring small French dishes with a slight Japanese twist. There is a lot of clown paraphernalia which is not surprising because, since the 1800s, clowns and acrobats from the nearby Cirque Napoléon (now Cirque d’Hiver)have frequented the place.
This historic listed bar with its ornate glass ceiling, decorated wall tiles and the original zinc bar will have you feeling as though you are in another era.

It began with a black cat that supposedly chose the barrel with the best wine for some visiting wine merchants in Zell, Germany. That wine was then marketed as “Zeller Schwarze Katz@ (black cat from Zell) with a picture of a black cat on the label. But, Moselland winery went further and marketed their wine in a black cat-shaped bottle and soon the wine in different coloured cat-shaped bottles began appearing. With everyone focusing on bunnies for Easter, we couldn’t resist!
