Don’t you just hate those long legal documents and pages that you have to read, especially in fine print, and need an attorney with you to understand what they mean? Yeah, we do too. So we’ll keep this short and sweet and to the point.
All posts about wineries are from our point of view and we do not receive any money from a winery in order to create a post. Some wineries do offer us a discount or complimentary tasting but there is no guarantee given that a post will be written.
The FTC requires bloggers to disclose information whenever they write about a product that they may have gotten as a sample or things like complimentary admission to an event. Unfortunately this page alone will not satisfy their requirement as it always changes and bloggers are always trying to understand what the latest law is. This also holds true with what are called affiliate links which means if you click on a link and purchase a product we mention, we may get a tiny bit of commission. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but does help support Texas Wine Lover with website and podcast hosting costs, website tools, and all those extra things you don’t realize while you’re enjoying our posts, loving that winery map, etc. So in our posts, you may have to see some disclosures to satisfy their requirement. Unfortunately after almost 900 posts at the time of this writing, it would take forever to go back and update every post if it even applied. In that case, please assume everything in the past was a sample (even though it wasn’t).
After five years of traveling around the entire state of Texas and beyond to bring you the latest news and information, and spending I don’t want to think how much money as a hobby turned passion, we have turned Texas Wine Lover into a business. So you’ll see some advertising on the website from companies who are helping us and trying to get your attention too. Please support these businesses by clicking on the advertisements and checking out their websites. You most likely will find something you enjoy! We will only accept advertisers who we personally would support.
We will only endorse those products and services that we feel are worthy of such. We have earned your respect over the years and will continue to do so.
At Texas Wine Lover, we respect your privacy and will not share, sell, trade, or disclose your personal information which is provided via comments or subscribing to our website. Any emails sent from the website are to provide information to you such as new blog posts, special news, and offers. We don’t like a lot of emails either, so we try to limit the amount of emails sent.
