Philatelically Correct Wine

Need an idea for an affordable wine to go with holiday dinners? Then stock up on some philatelically correct Contrada!

Produced by the Michael Pozzan Winery, which is located in the Russian River Valley in Northern California, Contrada has a 400L Italian stamp (SC# 1424) on its label.

I recently purchased a couple bottles for around $15.00 each at my local BevMo and served them up at my stamp club's annual Holiday Philatelic Pizza Party last night. Both the Chardonnay and Cabernet are exceptional values and taste great.

The Russian River Valley produces award-winning Chardonnay and pinot noir wines in addition to other wine varietals, and is home to many small and several large commercial wineries.

The word 'Contrada' is a generic name given to various types of Italian city subdivisions.
