Wine Auction House Gives Away Wine Photography to Journalists and Bloggers

Wickman’s Fine Wine Auctions is offering 10 years of collected wine images to bloggers & online publications royalty free

ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA - Friday March 22, 2013 – Wine bloggers often need various photographs of wine bottles or wine related scenes to enhance their publications and may not have the resources to create their own or the budget to use a stock image service which more often than not lack the specific images required.


Wickman’s have released an initial set of images online to their website that bloggers and journalists may browse and download. Other images will be released on a regular basis over the course of the year and will be available, royalty free, to use in online publications. Royalty free refers to material that may be used for commercial benefit without paying royalties to the original creator.


“Wine related publications and bloggers can help themselves to whichever images they like,” says wine auctioneer Mark Wickman. “I plan to upload many more over the next 12 months; it is quite a time consuming task sorting through 10 years of wine photography”.

The images will be available for download from the Wickman’s website at:

Other timely reference material available for bloggers are a list of current and historical prices paid for all vintages of Penfolds Grange. Penfolds Grange will be released to the public officially on the 2nd May 2013:
