Samples/Review Policy

I do accept wines for review, and if I like your wine, there’s a good chance I’ll be interested in doing a profile (interview) on your story.  In order to comply with federal trade regulations, I will always state whether a wine that I’ve reviewed was received as a sample.

Since my blog is primarily story-driven I like to include more than just a grade or point rating in my reviews, so anybody with a great story (especially small producers).  Beyond the blog, if I’m not doing a full-blown article on a producer, I’ll post brief reviews and recommendations on social media and include a pretty pic featuring said wine (check my buttons up top, yo).

I cannot guarantee that I will review every wine sent to me, but I will try, and chances are good that I will.

If you would like to submit a wine for review please email me at, or just use the contact form here on the site, and I will get back to you with shipping information.
