Code of Ethics / Disclosure Policy

Code of Ethics Policy Effective April 1, 2016

Within this code of ethics policy, “we,” “us,” “this blog” and “Kathryn Haley” are one and the same.

Wine Reviews and Recommendations

Since we are a new blog, we do not receive free samples of wine or products. All wines reviewed are chosen by us and paid for by us. Any wines that are received as gifts or purchased by a third-party will be disclosed on the review post. Recommendations of wines and/or products given are done so in a truthful and constructive format. Our opinions are our own.

Future Wine Reviews and Recommendations:

If wine samples are provided to us by third parties, it will not influence our recommendations. Providing a product sample neither guarantees nor influences the product’s review or endorsement but merely guarantees the product is available for use or consumption. Not all samples received will be consumed or reviewed. Only products we consider of interest to our readers will be reviewed. Any manufacturer’s or provider’s claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

This blog does not knowingly contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

Affiliate Links:

An affiliate link is something that takes you to a product or service that, if you purchase it, we get a small commission from the sale. Some products/services on this website are available through affiliate links. We will only offer affiliate links to products and services we truly recommend and we would suggest without affiliate links. We will clearly indicate on the post that affiliate links are used. The affiliate income will be used to help run this blog and to earn money for more wine. Thanks for your support!
