sample & travel Policy


Hi, I'm Amy C. Collins, creator of Pig&Vine

I welcome samples for evaluation on Pig&Vine and invitations to trade tastings and events, for travel on press trips, winery and wine region tours, to other wine and culinary experiences, and educational opportunities. 

Every wine I write about on Pig&Vine is thoroughly tasted and carefully considered.

I only write about wines I drink.

A review is not guaranteed.

If a wine is clearly flawed or faulted, I will not write about it and will let you know the bottle was off.

All samples, gifts and sponsored travel are mentioned in relevant posts.  

Please do not ask Pig&Vine to advertise your product, join your affiliate program or promote you or your product for cash. 

Shoot me an email at hello (at) for shipping address, travel and trade event inquiries or writing projects. 

You can find additional wine, food, music and culture writing clips at
