Australia’s Wine Stamps
Australia Post has released five stamps depicting various aspects of wine production and consumption. The stamps contain photographic quality images of a vineyard or ripe grapes on the two paired 50 cents stamps, harvesting and wine casks on the two paired $1.00 stamps, and red and white wine in wineglasses on the $1.45 stamp. A variety of different Australia Post products containing the wine stamps have been produced including booklets of stamps, a First Day Cover, and Maximum Cards. The latter is my choice to collect as the image on each card continues the theme depicted in the accompanying stamp.
