I often get inquired whether or not I accept samples. I do get lots of samples, so it's high time I put up a post that explains what to expect when you want to send sample wines for review.
Email me first and get all my shipping information. I prefer to know who I should expect samples from. I have my wine shipped to a wine storage facility in San Francisco. They take wine but prefer not to get regular mail (books, flyers, etc. for storage customers).
I love it when wineries don't use styrofoam shippers. They are so last-century.
As loyal readers know, I try to keep this blog positive, so I only put up wines that I really like and want to share with my readers. There is too much information in the world to expect my readers remember wines to avoid. I started this blog to highlight wines to remember.
So, that means no guarantees for placement, but great wines, or just plain intersting ones, usually find their way onto the blog. Thanks!
