Does a “wine glass” make all the difference when drinking red or white wine?
Conclusion: Yes, 100% when it’s Plumm glassware.
I attended Father Rabbit’s 1st Co-Op event hosted by Claudia ZinZan; Johnny from Red & White Cellar who showcased the stunning Plumm glassware with delicious NZ wines from Lake Hayes, Quarter Acre & Amisfield. Who knew pouring Chardonnay into a ‘Plumm’ White(a) glass would alter the aroma and taste opposed to a White(b) glass? Gobsmacked. Really.
My personal favourite was Plumm glass Red(b) with the Pinot Noir (tasting) which dazzled and delighted my palate.
What an education. What fun. ‘Father Rabbit’ exceeded my expectation to experience something distinctive. From now on – I can appreciate a Plumm wine glass in an erudite way. My friend and I purchased a few ‘must-haves’ before dashing off into the Jervois Road. Looking forward to the second Co-Op, it can’t come soon enough.
This exhibition was loaded with design – fashion (clothing), interiors, jewellery, furniture, architecture and figurines: film, stills and mannequins wore the design, with sheer glamour.
I personally was drawn to the fabulous ‘woman’s swimsuit’s’ by Margit Fellegi in the 1950’s (think Marilyn Monroe) that exuded femininity and style.
Furniture made by German-born designer, Kem Weber who was (notably) known for the concept ‘store-within-a-store’ shopping. Weber’s ‘Desk and Chair’ was made with satinwood, primavera, chrome, aluminium, resin and leather. I want it.

The architecture by Carlos Diniz, created ‘alluring images that helped potential clients place themselves in the frame’ (translated from technical drawings). Collaboration with magazines and museums – made the ‘ideal’ flat box home, desirable to the ‘rich and famous’, in Hollywood.
There was more – much more. Go and see it for yourself.
