Frequently Asked Questions
These are questions we hear all the time. Naturally, the answers are ours.
- Why don’t you link to Natalie MacLean’s blog and website?
Ms. MacLean is a proven plagiarist (http://palatepress.com/2012/12/wine/content-theft/). She has also engaged in “pay for play” behavior (http://palatepress.com/2012/12/wine/pay-for-play-wine-writing/). We try to avoid linking to folks like this. And we remove our links when we learn about them.
- Do you accept samples?
Dicey area. In general, we pay our own way. If we review a wine we almost certainly paid for it. While we occasionally get trade and/or media discounts, we do our best not to be swayed by that. Our policy is to not accept samples.
- Are you nuts?
Most likely, but we’re having fun.
