I’ve recently discovered, courtesy of Richard Hemming’s blog, a wonderful little Australian TV comedy called Plonk. Essentially, three guys set out to make a wine show and end up destroying everything in the process. Its a wonderful satire on media and wine culture, with some wonderful cameos from some of Australia’s leading winemakers. It’s actually a hilarious (and effective) introduction to some of the great wine regions of Australia. My only regret is that many of the featured wines aren’t distributed in the US!
Below is one of my favorite episodes from the first season: Hunter Valley, NSW. Enjoy!
