Here you will find truthful wine reviews of all kinds of different wines. From the upscale to the cheap stuff and everything in between.
Many of the wine reviews you’ll find here are for the wines you’ll find in your nearby stores and restaurants.
Why not read the wine reviews first and then decide what to buy or order, right?
Also on the site, you’ll find some information on how to taste wine. Everyone does things a little different, but I thought it would be good to share the process Honest Wine Reviews goes through.
Taste in wine is truly personal. Don’t be intimidated by so called gurus or connoisseurs. Decide for yourself what you like and don’t like.
As I taste different wines, I will share my experiences and offer some personal opinions. Comments are welcome! I hope you’ll do the same.
In the Media
One of the things I’m proud of is my reviews being featured at The Planet Weekly.
The Planet Weekly is a Tuscaloosa, Alabama based newspaper that is an “arts, news and entertainment publication containing enlightening and interesting stories, sports, arts, and business profiles.”
They reach close to 50,000 readers in their area, with a 98% pickup rate and over 400 distribution points.
I’m pleased to be their wine review contributer. Check them out at theplanetweekly.com.

Samples and Guidelines
Honest Wine Reviews does encourage sample submissions for review. Please note that the submitted wine will be noted as a free sample sent in for review purposes in the review.
Also, the review will be honest and may be positive or negative. If interested, please contact me if you would like to submit a sample for review. Review of the sample on HonestWineReviews.com not guaranteed.
Additionally, it’s helpful if you send along the shipping tracking number as soon as you ship. This helps to ensure I’m available to sign for delivery or intercept at UPS, FedEx, etc. Keep in mind excessive heat and cold can impact wine greatly, so it’s mutually beneficial if I can plan for delivery.
Finally, since I take pictures of the bottle it would be helpful to keep the legal stickers off the front of the bottle. Or, please email specs and photos and I will use photos you provide. You can also point me to an appropriate website where I may download photos and specs. Please contact me with any questions, special requirements or to schedule a delivery.
Please Note: Unless noted specifically in the review, the wines that have been reviewed on this site were purchased and were not a free sample.
