My Sample Policy
When I started this site, I have to admit I was doing if for my pleasure. It gave me an opportunity to share wines I have bought to enjoy with my friends. Recently, I have been contacted to see if I would be interested in trying someone’s wine. I like the idea because wineries and winemakers can send me a wine I might have never tried or even heard of.
And, FREE is good! Besides a write up that favors your wine is pretty cool too!
So if you are interested in having me try your wine here is my policy.
If you choose to submit samples, please note a few things:
Your wine will be clearly labeled as a free sample sent in for review purposes. All other posts I have purchased the wines.
Taste ratings will be judged as always and no preference will be given for samples.
Acceptance of a sample does not guarantee a favorable review, or that any review at all will be given. I tend to only review wines that I recommend.
If you do send me your wine, PLEASE SEND ME THE TRACKING INFORMATION FOR YOUR SHIPMENT. All shipments are sent to my wife’s business so there is always an adult available to sign.
As temperatures heat up over the summer and are really cold in the winter here in Minnesota, I strongly recommend that you do not ship in July through September and December through March. If you must, please contact me prior to shipping.
I encourage you to take a look at my Rating System to determine if your wine is a good fit for my site. I try to keep my rating simple.
Finally, if you are wondering how many visitors I receive a day, please contact me and I can send you web statistics from my website. I have over 500 visitors a day and growing!
If you are at all interested, please contact me for my shipping address. Bill@BillsWineWandering.com
Life is too short to drink crappy wine. Expand your palate and keep trying.
