    Wineries send us information and we are signed up on thousands of winery email lists.

    Most of our traffic is repeat traffic or referral from current visitors. We are also well indexed on the search engines and directories so we get a fair amount of traffic when someone is searching for "wine releases".

    Email contactATWineRelease.com and replace "AT" with"@" and include your contact information (winery name, winery ava, Email, phone, contact name, etc.) and you will be contacted for your release information.

    Usually three times a month. On the 15th when we publish the newsletter then we usually receive email updates from wineries from the newsletter blast so we update again around the 20th when we publish the retail wine release sheets and then around the 1st of the month.

    While WineRelease is a passion project for us, we extend an invitation to wineries to join our "winery mailing list" page, providing an opportunity to expand their list of subscribers. Additionally, wineries can opt to "sponsor" WineRelease, showcasing their listings and wines in a distinctive red format for increased visibility. If you're interested in either of these opportunities or wish to advertise on WineRelease, please email us at contact@WineRelease.com. Replace "AT" with "@" in the email address.
