WineRelease was launched in August 2000 by Neil Monnens with the goal of keeping wine enthusiasts and wine trade professionals informed about past, present and future North American wine release dates. Although we would love to provide release dates for imported wine, it is challenging to get accurate wine release data due the many middlemen involved in the import process. "On the boat" is the response we normally receive, and that can mean this month or three months from now. If we can't provide accurate information, we prefer not to provide the information at all.

We publish a free monthly newsletter, on the 15th of each month, detailing the wines released that month as well as the following month as well as changes since the last newsletter (previous newsletters can be found here).'s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Privacy policy's privacy policy is here.

What is the monthly Retail Wine Release Sheets? Emails 'printer friendly' versions of wine releases for the month (in Adobe .PDF format) for wine retailers to post in their stores. To subscribe, email and replace "AT" with"@" and indicate you want to be on the retail list. You will receive the previous, present and next month's wine releases on or around the 20th of each month. There is no charge for the Retail Wine Release Sheets.

Will my Email address be kept private?
Yes, it will be kept private. We do not sell, rent, or distribute any names, postal addresses or Email addresses. You can view our privacy policy here.

Will I be inundated with Emails?
No, the monthly Email is the only regular Email you will receive (unless you also sign up to receive the monthly Retail Wine Release Sheets). There may be one or two additional announcements a year, but the monthly Email will be the primary Email you will receive.

Where do you get your information from?
Wineries send us information and we are signed up on hundreds of winery email lists.

Where does our traffic come from?
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".

How do I get my winery listed?
Email 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.

How do I update my listing?
Email and replace "AT" with"@" and include your release information (vintage, varietal, vineyard designation, release month/year, case production and retail release price).

How often is the site updated?
Usually three times a month. On the 15th when we publish the newsletter then we usually receive email updates from wineres 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.

How does WineRelease get paid?
Although we publish WineRelease as a labor of love, every year or two we ask for winery sponsorships (aka wine) to help offset the work involved in updating and publishing. If you are interested in advertising or sponsoring WineRelease, send an email to and replace "AT" with"@"
