Sample Submissions

To submit samples to Mark Gudgel for review on Itheewine, Vivino, and potentially in other publications, please review the following:

  • Please notify me in advance of coming shipments so that I can be sure to be home to receive them. Email:, Phone: (402) 730-7530.
  • Please send two bottles of each wine that you would like reviewed, both for quality control and because I am likely to pair it with different foods over time, decant one bottle, Coravin the other, etc.
  • If shipping during the warm months, usually June-October, please use expedited cold-shipping services, and if possible ship on a Monday. Please check the weather before shipping wine to Nebraska.
  • Please include printed tech sheets for each wine submitted whenever possible.
  • Please provide the best contact information for PR at your winery, as well as winemaker bio and contact information when possible.

Please ship all samples to:
