We are not accepting freelance pitches at this time. However, if you are an experienced wine and/or spirits writer and have an interest in being assigned stories, you may send an email query and published writing samples to mmay@tastingpanelmag.com and you may be considered for upcoming assignments in your area of expertise or geographic locale, depending on our editorial needs.

We accept samples year-round for consideration for possible review in both Meridith May's "Publisher's Picks" column and Anthony Dias Blue's "Blue Reviews" column. Please see our Sample Submission Guidelines.
