Bottle shop Plonk to open a second store at Belconnen Fresh Food Markets

It was once awarded the best bottle shop in Australia - and now Canberra will have two of them.

Fyshwick boutique bottle shop Plonk is opening a second store at the Belconnen Markets.

Owner Anthony Young said that like the original, the new store will have a huge range of beers, ciders, wine and spirits. All of the staff taste all of the wines themselves, so are very handy with a suggestion, and there will also be in-store wine tastings.

It will be the first foray on the northside for the bottle shop. Plonk initially opened in the laneway in Manuka before making the move to the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets almost a decade ago, first in a smaller shop before moving into its current space.

The Belconnen store is due to open just before Easter.
