Botched Postage Stamp inspires Oregon wine

Well, actually it didn't inspire the wine, only the labels on the bottles.

A botched batch of 100 postage stamps called "the Inverted Jenny" depicting an upside-down airplane, one of which sold at auction for $525,000, inspired the Benton-Lane Winery
stamp collecting label designer.

So now when you see a huge postage stamp along Territorial Highway near Monroe in the southern Willamette, you know the rest of the story.
