I am just one person who doesn’t have access to every wine in the world. As such, I absolutely accept (and encourage) wine and food samples, or other wine and food related products, for review from wineries, PR companies, and related companies. I am also open to invitations to visit wineries, breweries, restaurants, related industry events, and even offers of wine and food related travel.
Samples are reviewed at my discretion. Due to the volume of samples received, I cannot guarantee a specific timeframe in which wines will be reviewed. I do not score wines nor do I sell wines. Wine reviews will be honest and incorporate the WSET Systematic Approach to Tasting (SAT), but will always include my own personal anecdotes and opinions as well. I will always state when a wine has been received as a sample for review. If purchased at a local shop, I will share where the wine was purchased and the suggested retail price of the wine.
In the event that I feel a wine is below standard (meaning, regardless of personal taste preferences, I do not feel others will enjoy the wine) a review will not be posted.
I do ask that you please Contact Me before sending samples, even if you’ve sent products previously. This is to ensure that all wine and food products are expected and handled with care upon receipt.
**Please note: all reviews and opinions are my own and are not associated with any of my places of business. Sending samples for review on my personal website in no way guarantees coverage in any other media outlet I may be currently associated with.**
Those interested in sending samples must fill out the form below as a sign that you’ve read and understand my sample policies.
Many thanks and cheers!
