Sample & Travel Policy

Meg Houston Maker, founder of Terroir Review, evaluates thousands of wines and foods annually, including samples submitted directly for review and those tasted while traveling globally to visit producers or participate in U.S. and international tastings.

Meg welcomes invitations to participate in press trips, wine and food region tours, tastings, and other culinary experiences, and to judge competitions. Her insights have also made her a popular and engaging speaker at industry events.

Gifts, samples, and sponsored travel are always disclosed. Terroir Review strives to render reviews journalistically and without commercial bias. A review is not guaranteed, and we will never write about products that are obviously flawed by packaging, handling, or storage conditions.

Prior to shipping samples, please contact us for shipping address and compliance information. We also welcome inquiries for editorial, travel, speaking, teaching, and judging opportunities.

Thank you for reading.
