Events and Programs
Wine Enthusiast Magazine tastes, rates and reviews wines, spirits and beers for publication in our magazine and Web site. For detailed information about our tasting and review program and procedures, please read our About the Buying Guide box, which also appears in every issue’s print Buying Guide. If you are interested in submitting samples for review and publication, please download and read over the appropriate forms. Samples should be sent in according to the 2015 Buying Guide Tasting Schedule.
WINE: The FAQ: Tasting and Review document outlines the submission process and has the appropriate address(es) to send your wine. Please review this document before shipping any submissions to ensure you are sending the samples to the appropriate reviewer and address. California wineries should also refer to the California AVA Assignment sheet, and Pacific Northwest wineries should refer to the WA and OR AVA Assignment sheet to determine where to send submissions. Make sure to include a completed Wine Submission Form along with the samples you are sending.
SPIRITS: The Spirits Submission Form outlines all spirits tasting guidelines and procedures.
Lastly, if you have any questions regarding any of the forms or Wine Enthusiast’s tasting procedures, please contact Tasting Coordinator Alexander Peartree.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine welcomes proposals from freelance writers on subjects that pertain to wine, fine food and travel. Full manuscripts on spec are discouraged. Proposals can be submitted via email or snail mail. A proposal only needs to be one or two paragraphs, but it should be accompanied by materials (a resume, curriculum vitae or clips) intended to convince the editors of the submitter's qualifications to write that particular piece.
Submitters should be cautioned that Wine Enthusiast Magazine receives hundreds of proposals a year, and employs contributing editors in wine regions around the world who also propose story concepts. There is often a discernible overlap in specific proposals and general subject matter. At the same time, be assured that the editors will assign a story to the first qualified writer who proposes it.
You may also pitch story ideas for Wine Enthusiast Online. For example, ideas that you might have thought were too time-sensitive for a monthly magazine will now be considered. The editors will discuss all proposed story ideas internally, and decide whether the idea will work for the magazine, for the Web site or (we regret to inform you...) neither.
For efficiency’s sake, pitch the correct person(s). Note that only email addresses are included here. That’s because phone pitches are verboten.
For short, front-of-book items, write to Deputy Editor, Mike Dawson.
For feature stories aimed at the Pairings department and short items for the back of book**, write to Managing Editor, Joe Czerwinski.
For Web items, write to Web Editor/Producer Marina Vataj.
