Please! Submit Wines by Invitation Only

As I have slowed my journalistic work to a leisurely pace, I only accept a limited number of Pinot Noir wines for review and only by pre-arrangement or invitation. Meanwhile, I am currently training my protege (see above).

This has caused some confusion among wineries wishing to submit their wines for review since I continue to publish reviews of some wines.

I am not trying to be snobby or exclusive but simply want to reduce my workload after enjoyably publishing the time-consuming PinotFile for 20 years.

I welcome inquiries from interested wineries ( and I will respond if and/or when a window for Pinot Noir submission is available. Sorry, but I will no longer review Pinot Noir wines that arrive at my wine locker without pre-arrangement.
