Wine Samples — At Crushed Grape Chronicles, we are wine lovers, so we are happy to accept samples. We are, however, not in the business of doing reviews. We are story tellers. Ideally, tasting your wine would include a visit to your winery or vineyard. When this is not possible, we will request background information from you, as well as compiling our own research, to create a picture and a story behind the wine. We like pairing food and wine, so quite often we will include a pairing with our post. If you have a suggestion, or an old family recipe you would like to share, we are completely good with that. We do reserve the right to not post. My mom always said, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. We try to adhere to that and won’t waste either of our time, by saying unkind things.
If you have a sample you would like to send, email me at [email protected]. In this way, we can be prepared to receive the shipment and make sure that there will be time in our schedule to taste the wine. We often have a backlog of terrific content we are putting out and we don’t want your wine to sit for too long.
No conditions can be accepted for receiving samples; if you have conditions, then the samples won’t be accepted, period.
We will disclose to our readers and social media followers if a wine has been received as a sample.
