Sample Policy & House Rules
What We Accept:
Submissions and samples are warmly accepted as they offer opportunities for us to try and taste products that we might not have otherwise experienced. We kindly accept samples from wineries, wine, spirits, and beverage distributors or importers, food samples, as well as relevant products, merchandise, lifestyle/travel/wine gear, and apparel (including wine shirts) as well as other gifts you feel we may have an interest in based on our content for consideration.
Discovering new opportunities gets us excited! Therefore, we are also open to accepting sponsored travel, press trips, and invitations to review vineyards, wineries, restaurants, resorts, hotels, wine and beverage trade events, as well as travel destinations.
How We Review:
We make every effort to share something about the products we receive, however we cannot guarantee sending a sample will result in a review or post.
Reviews, shoutouts and content posts may appear on our Travels Uncorked YouTube channel, on a page of our Website, or on one or more of our social media platforms including Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. Where the review is shared is up to our sole discretion based on if it provides value to our audience but we do promise to be honest with our opinions. We were taught that if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all, so our intent is to spread the word about tasty beverages, culinary delights, destinations and experiences, not to bash the companies and people involved with them. Please note that we won’t create content about a wine or other product that’s obviously flawed by packaging, handling, or storage conditions. If you desire, you can choose to send two of every perishable, just in case one is not up to standard, we have a comparison sample. Gifts, samples, hosted events, and sponsored travel are always disclosed.
Specific Items to Note:
When sending us wine, other perishable products, or items with a high retail value, we encourage you to send us the tracking info for your shipment so that we can be sure someone will be available to sign for them. Just like you, we want them to survive the trip. Any supporting information about the product and its story is always greatly beneficial but not required. We recommend including information about the samples you’re sending, either within the shipment, or via email. If the sample is wine, spirits or food, we appreciate information about the maker of the product and any production notes, where the product can be purchased, and the suggested retail price of the samples. We will often video and photograph your samples so please be sure that there are no labels or stickers that will obstruct a clear image of them.
