Sample Policy


Cori Solomon graciously welcomes samples and promotional items related to wine, food, travel and pets.

Please note that Cori’s primary focus in her writing is wine, travel and dogs.

When tasting wines: Wine samples received are stored for several weeks to a month in a wine cellar that is temperature-controlled. This is to let the wine settle from any bottle shock the wine endured during shipping.

Cori typically opens the bottle and depending on the grape varietal, lets the wine breath for a period of time. If necessary she will decant the wine. Most red wines are tasted over a two day period so as to determine how they hold up over time.

Please note that the acceptance of samples does not guarantee a review, nor does it guarantee a positive review.

Cori also accepts invitations to cover events, press trips, hostings at wineries, restaurants and hotels. My attendance at a wine tasting event, seminar or any other invitation does not guarantee a review.

For those interested in sending samples and invitations, please email Cori.
