Samples Policy

The vast majority (i.e., 99%) of wines reviewed on Wine Casual are purchased by me personally. I do not solicit samples, but I do accept wine for rating and review.

Please review my About Page to find out what wines and wine regions I’m currently focused on to get a sense of how the wine you’re considering submitting for review meshes with Wine Casual’s current, past or planned future focus. I’m also open to reviewing interesting wines outside my current focus.  My wine reviews are featured by Wine Searcher as part of their tasting notes tab.

While virtually everything submitted for tasting receives a published review within 2-3 months, please note that Wine Casual makes no guarantee that all samples will be reviewed nor to the nature or timing of the review because I will always give my honest, up front opinion and rating. To comply with FTC regulations Wine Casual will also make a note in the review that the wine was received as a sample.

If you would like to submit a wine for review please contact me, let me know what wine you would like to submit, and I will send you shipping details.
