What is the background of The Hanes Wine Review? Started on a whim in 1999, it was a way to share his notes with friends (who ill advisably actually asked for his notes). The review grew in proportion to Hanes’s knowledge of wine. “Bloated” is probably a better word. Currently, it is emailed to around 700 people of all sophistication levels from wine beginners to collectors to wine industry professionals. It usually contains anywhere from 30 to 60 wine reviews each month depending entirely on how many wines Hanes gets to tastes and scribble on. No marketing is done and “word of mouth” is the sole manner in which the review reaches a broader readership. If you like it, recommend it to others!

How do I sign up? Simply fill out the name and email address fields below and press the sign up button. How easy is that? You will then receive an automatically generated email to confirm that you do indeed want to sign up. Select the confirmation link in that email and it’s a done deed. Hanes will then send you an email to announce the birth of a new wine review at the beginning of each month. And, remember, if you “accidentally” delete the email you can always come to this website to access the latest review in both onscreen and PDF formats. To be removed from the active distribution list all you have to do is fill in the email field below and press the unsubscribe button. But turn away quickly lest you see Hanes cry!
