Sample Policy for the Trade

The Vino-Noire (VN) team is always happy to try wine of all types and share our impressions with our Cru Vin Society. We are always looking to feature wines on our blog and social media sites. We love the standard varietals, and intriguing blends from all parts of the globe. At VN we have adventurous palates and open minds. Should you like for us to sample and review your wine, we will do our best to share our review and make recommendations on our website.

We can’t guarantee a review nor will we publish reviews of wines we don’t think our Cru Vin Society members will drink; however, we promise to do our best to share insightful details with the Cru Vin Society. While we cannot commit to an exact time frame as to when a review will be published, we will notify you in advance of the review appearing on our website. VN will guarantee that two or more of us will try your wine with an open mind and receptive spirit; and we are also eager to review other wine related items, including gadgets, books, etc.

To be eligible for a Vino Noire review:

1. Your wine must be easily accessible in retail outlets;
2. Please provide as much information about your wine, winery, and/or philosophy with us; and
3. If you affix a business card or some other identifier to the bottle, please don’t cover any of the labels. We need to be able to appreciate, read, and photograph your labels.
