To my cherished friends in the wine/beer/spirits trade: I do accept samples for review. This is by no means an avenue to an automatic positive review since I subscribe to the old school method of wine recommendations: I write/talk about what I like. It seems more genuine that way and I suck at lying. For my shipping address, please contact me directly.
I sometimes have an idea of what I’m going to write about but don’t really keep an editorial calendar. New releases are always welcome and I might contact you directly if I’m looking to cover, say, sherry, or something else esoteric. Frankly, it’s tragic that sherry has to fall into that category, don’t you think?
I welcome product news and press releases but please only send stuff that is relevant to the general consumer. No event information, please.
This could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
