Do you accept freelance pitches?
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 email@example.com and you may be considered for upcoming assignments in your area of expertise or geographic locale, depending on our editorial needs.
How can I have my spirits brand or wine reviewed or otherwise featured in THE TASTING PANEL?
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.
If you are interested in having your brand covered in a custom feature story, contact our VP of Marketing and Advertising, Bill Brandel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Do you host visiting spirits producers and winemakers?
We do often meet with winemakers visiting the Los Angeles area and taste with them in the tasting room in our offices in Encino. Please contact Meridith May (email@example.com) to make arrangements.
