If you’ve been known to head South for a taste of Virginia Cabernet — and you can eloquently extol the virtues of it — you just might land a byline in Wine Enthusiast, one of the most respected mags in the field.
With a mission “to educate and entertain readers in the most accessible and user-friendly way, as part of an active, upscale and fulfilling lifestyle,” the publication serves as an important source for ratings and reviews of wine and spirits; its tasting panel includes professionals with years of tasting experience located in the major wine producing regions of the world.
The mag is not only freelancer-friendly (50 percent of the print pub and 80 percent of the website are freelancer-written), but its coverage goes far beyond wine. Freelancers are invited to pitch everything from food and travel stories to profiles and statistics.
