Samples & Ratings Policies

Samples are reviewed on an ongoing basis. The following samples & ratings policies ensure that fair and transparent information is communicated for consumers who are looking to make a buying decision.

As part of that transparency, each sample is tasted with full knowledge of the producer, the region, and the price.

Samples Policy

If there’s an organic fit for inclusion on the website, samples may make their way into editorial content. However, coverage cannot be guaranteed. 

Note, from time to time we work with industry partners and advertisers, however, they do not dictate our content. Content that has been paid for will always be clearly labelled as sponsored content.

Ratings Policy

As for January 2021, samples are put through a rating system and posted via Instagram. To further our philosophy promoting transparency, we use the 100-point system as outlined in detail on VinePair

If a sample is sent and a published rating is not wanted, that must be communicated by email previous to receiving the sample.
