Tasting Notes

Disclaimer: The majority of the wines I review are media samples. I received no other compensation. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

In addition to the samples I regularly review and am also available as a public speaker, wine educator, and judge. I frequently cover industry tastings, trade events, press trips, and wine region tours.

You will find my reviews here, and on social media channels like TwitterInstagramVivino, and Cellar Tracker. Presently, I have cultivated over 44,000 followers on Vivino, and have a growing audience on channels as well, so the potential for visibility is very high indeed.

While I cannot guarantee that I’ll write about every sample I receive, I do make an effort to review wines on a timely basis. I publish both positive and constructive comments—I taste most wines from my home office or during the course of a meal, taking time to jot down notes and to form an opinion. If a wine appears to be flawed, I will not review it, or its flaw will be noted.

To send samples, please email me at and I will gladly send you my shipping address.
