My name is Jon and I started this site in 2012 as a personal wine review journal. It has grown into a place where thousands of people come for honest reviews of the wines you’ll find on today’s store shelves and restaurant menus. I’m humbled and excited that so many people find the site so useful!
I review popular wines and share my opinions so everyday wine consumers have an idea of what they might get when they buy. I usually try to include the price of the wine in the review.
Since wine tasting is fun to do, I sometimes get “tasting assistance” from friends, neighbors and family who also like wine. I include their opinions as well. Also, I encourage YOU the reader to share your opinions in the comments. Let’s make this the Honest Wine Reviews community. Cheers!!
