The New Zealand Wine Post is one of the first privately owned postal services in New Zealand. It is operated by Weston Winery New Zealand, which began issuing the Wine Post issues in 1990 primarily for its own domestic and international postage, although not exclusively. The Wine Post currently issues commemorative stamps for Oceania Nations and Antarctica Post.

1990 1st isssue



The only known error in these stamps are perforation mis-alignments. 
Google NZ WIne Post for more info.

!992 Wine and Flowers. Available in 2,3,4 and 5 'Glasses'
Here are 2 and 5 as a Se Tenant pair.



There exist many interesting items for this issue. There is a beautiful colour design sketch. But the most spectacular of all is the colour 'block' which is four times the size of the actual sheet as printed. There exists a trial printing with the words and values set out in different positions. These are thickly pink toned gummed and are imperforate on matte paper. The issued sheets were printed in several different print houses over their issued life-time; and these are identifiable by differing colour shades.
