Sample Submissions

  • Before you send any wine sample, email us first. This will save you time, money and resources.
  • Please mark each bottle (on the bottle) with its recommended retail price. Seriously. It’s a GREAT help if you do (press releases are rarely read/kept).
  • Please note that we do not guarantee that every (or any) sample will be reviewed – be judicious in what you send. Please bear in mind that we currently receive somewhere between 7000 and 10,000 wine samples per year, each, and it is largely impossible to provide reviews or feedback on them all. That’s roughly an average of 25 bottles of wine arriving at our houses, each and every day, for each of us, 365 days of the year.
  • Reviews and features in The Wine Front are available to subscribers only (regardless of whether you have submitted a wine for review or not). Please do not request free-of-charge access to The Wine Front or any of its reviews, as refusal has a strange tendency to offend. The Wine Front is not a free consultancy service (i.e. you provide a wine and we provide a view/review for your marketing department), it’s a subscriber-based wine site for consumers.
  • A subscription to The Wine Front allows access to all reviews and features. The subscription rate is not a reproduction fee. If you wish to reproduce any information or review from The Wine Front, please contact Gary Walsh and/or Campbell Mattinson (contact details above) for details on licensing/reproduction fees. All material on The Wine Front is protected by copyright, and should not be reproduced in any form without written consent from one or both of the publishers (Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh).

What is The Wine Front?

The WINEFRONT has flourished as a wine review and information site since 2002. We believe in hard work, realistic scoring, reliability and rigorous independence. We cover Australian wine principally but we extend coverage across the wider world of wine. The hunt for the next beautiful wine knows no boundaries. The WINEFRONT is run by Campbell Mattinson, Gary Walsh and Mike Bennie. A full history of reviews and articles is available to subscribers via the WINE SEARCH tab.
