We’ve discussed quite a bit before how useful you all find members’ reviews on our website - the general feeling seems to be they represent honest, reliable and helpful feedback, whether they’re positive or negative reviews. And I quite agree!
It’s for precisely this reason that we’d like to encourage more reviews on our website - not only you guys here on The Community, but more widely we get consistent member feedback that these reviews are helpful and that you’d like to see more of them!
But here in particular I’ve seen a quite staggering wealth of knowledge and passion for wine, and this experience and expertise is absolutely invaluable to your fellow members - especially newer members or those who don’t feel confident in their wine knowledge.
So this is an ongoing recruitment topic encouraging all of you keen reviewers to share your thoughts about our wines as a product review on our website. We’re not asking this to get more positive reviews - the real value is in honest reviews!
David - aka @M1tch - is going to keep us updated, and will occasionally share particularly good/amusing reviews he spots. And please do share your own favourites here if you find a good’un! (Or indeed if you’re chuffed with one of your own reviews! )
Good times to add your own reviews include:
- When you contribute to the weekend drinking thread etc and the impression of a wine is still fresh in your mind
- If you try a wine based on another member’s recommendation here
- If you try a wine at one of our tastings (including TWSTaste) leaving your thoughts on the ones that stood out!
And of course, if you spot a cracking tasting note here on The Community, you can always encourage the author to immortalize their words on our website too.
Any questions? Ask @M1tch or me!
