Sample Policy

Write for Wine’s policy about wine samples is simple: We accept samples of wine and wine-related products, and will disclose in any subsequent blog posts that free samples were received. But we will only write about the wines or wine-related products that we like.

This policy adheres to the overall approach at Write for Wine: We do not consider ourselves critics; this blog is not about reviews. Rather, we like to tell people about our favorite wines. If we don’t like a wine, we do not write about it.

First, there is too much good wine in Washington state and elsewhere to waste time writing about wine that we don’t like.

Second, just because we don’t like a sample of wine doesn’t mean it isn’t good; it simply means our palates prefer other wines. Just because we don’t write about a wine product doesn’t mean it isn’t good, either.

If you agree with our sample policy, please contact for a delivery address. Thanks!
