The Plumm story begins with one family’s passion for wine, which turned to crafting glassware. After making and selling wine for over 50 years, Plumm understands the shape of a glass significantly influences the flavour and aroma of a wine. From this, an obsession was born, as we collaborated with top sommeliers, industry experts and winemakers around the world to create the perfect glass. With thousands of different grape varietals, we found most fall into a few specific styles. Our collections are designed to elevate those styles, eliminating the need for a glass for every varietal. Wine can be complicated but wine glasses shouldn’t be. Plumm is now lining the tables of over 2000 of Australia’s best restaurants, bars and cellar doors.
