Sample Policy

Sample policy for wine and book reviews

On the wine trail in Italy accepts wine and book samples for review. For obvious reasons, most of what I am interested in on this blog, on the wine trail in Italy, are wines from Italy, but if there is something from somewhere else with an Italian connection, I also accept those as well. I read (and review) all manner of books about wine, not just Italo-centric. I also write about wine from all over the world, for newspapers and magazines. Please refer to this page for further information as to where and for whom I write:

Please send Alfonso an e-mail ( requesting shipping instructions.

My review policy: I will taste what is sent to me and write about wines that fit into my blog story lines, whether it is a regional post, a seasonal post or a single wine that I feel compelled to write about. I also consider wines, from anywhere, for other journalistic endeavors, as mentioned above.

Thank you
