(4/8/2013)

Indowines is busily launching its Plaga range of wines made from imported Chilean and Western Australian grapes and bottled in Indonesia.

During a series of tastings conducted across the Island, Plaga is initially promoting 3 varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Rose. Later, Plaga Cabernet Sauvignon will join the brand line.

Targeted towards youthful drinkers looking for refreshment at an affordable price – the average Plaga drinker most like doesn’t have a wine cellar or the patience to keep a wine until it matures.

Wine lovers young and old are certain to rejoice at the introduction of these eminently drinkable vin table that are retail priced at less than Rp. 130,000 (US$13) a bottle.

Sold at an even lower price to restaurants and retailers, Indowines is hopeful that their Plaga range will be sold at near retail by local restaurants in order to once again make wine an affordable accompaniment to a dinner out.

Plaga Wines will soon be available across Indonesia with initial launches now underway in Bali, Lombok and the Gilis with Jakarta, Surabaya and other major cities to follow shortly.
