Plonk aims to help the average wine lover to explore ‘beyond the square’ of the known brands and discover wines that have regional and vineyard characteristics that will tantalise your tastebuds.
The wines we carry have a great following in Melbourne and Sydney, but are not generally seen on Canberra liquor store shelves, but often found in your favourite restaurants — gems brought together with care and thought.

Affleck Vineyard was planted in 1976 with initial plantings of Cabernet, Rhine Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The vineyard now covers four hectares including Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Shiraz and Merlot with the grafting of Rhine Riesling to Pinot Noir nearly complete. The vineyard was named Affleck (a corruption of 'achadh-nan-leac' — the field of stones or stoney field) after the farm in Huntly, Scotland occupied by the Hendry family for more than 250 years.
One of the oldest and smallest wineries in the Canberra district, offering both excellent table and fortified wines. There are lovely picnic areas and cheese platters can be purchased.

Lark Hill is located at 860m on the Lake George escarpment overlooking Bungendore. It is in an environmental protection zone and is home to many species of birds and wildlife. The vineyard was named for the sky larks which sing and soar above the vineyard in late Winter and early Spring. The wines win many Gold Medals and consumer awards and have an international reputation as New World wines with Old World style and balance; made with minimal handling and preservatives.
Enjoy a tasting and a chat with the family winemaking team by the fireside in winter, or a stroll in the vineyard during milder weather. Check our website for special events, offers and wine releases.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Only you can decide whether you want to give A.A. a try - whether you think
it can help.
We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we were sick with alcoholism.
We decided to face up to what alcohol had done to us. Remember, there is no disgrace in facing up to the fact you have a problem.
