A wine to collect stamps by

At the tender age of 20, Thomas Hardy, filled with the early pioneering spirit, left England to carve out his future. He arrived in the newly established colony of South Australia on August 18, 1850.

Eventually he took up fruit growing in the surrounding hills of Adelaide. By 1857 Thomas created his first slice of history by shipping two hogsheads of wine to England. This is commonly applauded as marking Australia's entry into the wine export market.

Hardy's Stamp of Australia offers one of Australia's most popular, easy to drink and affordable range of wines...all with a nice picture of an Australia stamp on the bottle.

Priced at under $15.
