For the sake of transparency, I’ve outlined my personal blogging code of conduct / ethics below. I welcome any questions, concerns, or comments you may have about these – the bottom line in all of this is that I am here in the blogosphere to be as fair and genuine as possible in what I write.
I am not a journalist by education or by trade. I am not directly affiliated with any of the companies or websites linked on this blog, apart from advertisers / affiliate programs who (obviously) pay me in some way/shape/form to be listed in the sidebar and affiliate links that help you find wine or products mentioned here (those have no influence on the critical aspects of the site – I get the same amount if you click on a link to a wine I pan or praise).
For the purposes of creating 1WineDude.com content, I do not work in a paid capacity for/with any wine shops, wine retailers, wine stores, winemakers, or wineries. Therefore, I consider myself an independent source of wine information, and I choose what I what to write about, what I say about each topic, and when it gets published.
