Sample Submissions

Sample Submissions

The Wine Bottle guidelines for submitting samples for review are pretty straight forward.

The first step is to drop me a line via email. I will get back to you ASAP to make sure all is ready for your samples to arrive. My email is
Every bottle you send will be reviewed. Regardless of whether you’ve got an experimental wine or a stone cold killer of a wine, I’ll test it, write it up, and publish it online within a week of receiving your samples. The review is also sent simultaneously back to you.
There are no limits on reproducing my reviews. I wish to spread the word about all sorts of wines to all sorts of people, and so please feel free to reproduce my reviews and ratings ‘til your heart’s content. I will also publish reviews of your wine to my followers on Instagram and Twitter.
Press releases and technical sheets are more than welcome. The more information I have on the wine, the better.

So basically…
Drop me an email.
Label your wines and put in a sheet with all relevant info, including the retail price.
I will publish my reviews and ratings within a week of receiving your samples, and you can publish then on your site as much or as little as you like!

Why submit samples to The Wine Bottle?
The Wine Bottle is an independent wine website dedicated to talking about interesting wines, interesting wine topics, and constantly learning about new discoveries in the world of wine. It’s aimed at experienced wine drinkers as well as novices looking to learn a thing or two about wine, or read an interesting yarn. In my reviews and ratings I try to tell the story of the wine, as well as when it might be best to drink, with what foods, and in what company. The aim is to be informative and helpful, not to trash wines or be a trendsetter.

I think I was captured by how essentially natural or organic the whole process of winemaking is. It's farming, it's viticulture, it's weather and soil, and many more things. It's the winemaker. But after all these things, after the cap is unscrewed or the cork popped, I (and you) get to enjoy it. Then we talk about it and learn some more. Which is, I guess, the reason why you're here! Here you'll find stories, links, wine education samples and wine reviews. I am entirely independent and my wine reviews and ratings are based on my own thoughts and opinions. I accept no endorsements for products or good reviews. Enjoy! I can be reached for comments, feedback and questions at Good drinking to you! David
