Sample Policy

Rockin Red Blog accepts wine, wine products, and book samples for review from wineries, distributors, marketing firms, importers, retail shops, etc. Please contact Michelle Williams via email at for shipping information. All wine samples received will be placed in the wine refrigerator to rest after shipping for a couple of weeks. All samples received will be noted in the review along with a link to the winery and/or sender’s web site and a picture of the bottle. The article will be shared on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedin and Instagram accounts once the blog is published. Furthermore, the winery and/or sender may share theblog review on its website or social media platforms with proper credit. Samples are reviewed in the order they are received or per assignments; however, there is no guarantee samples will be featured on Rockin Red Blog. At times samples may only be shared on my social media accounts or featured in a virtual tasting chat where applicable. Finally, samples may be featured in contributing articles on other sites such as Snooth, The Daily Meal, or Basil & Salt, per my discretion.

Here are a few of the many brands I have worked with:

Following any press trip articles will be written on various topics from the trip and published on this blog as well as pitched to other publications.
