Writing And Photography Submission Guidelines

Wine Enthusiast Magazine welcomes pitches from freelance writers, but full manuscripts on spec are discouraged. A pitch only needs to be one paragraph, and it should be accompanied by materials (a resume, curriculum vitae or clips) that demonstrate the submitter’s qualifications to write that particular piece.

Submitters should be cautioned that Wine Enthusiast receives hundreds of pitches a year and employs contributing editors in wine regions around the world who also propose story concepts. Here are some guidelines as to what we’re most often looking for:

* Trends and innovations in the wine world across multiple destinations or regions and more than one business
* Wine-centric city guides
* The story of a grape variety’s history and adaptation around the world
* A wine-drinker’s guide to some other beverage category, alcoholic or not
* Stories that look at the intersection of wine and culture
* Humorous or serious personal essays centered on a vinous experience

Proposals that don’t fall into the above categories but seem to be in line with what Wine Enthusiast has run recently are, of course, welcome, but we recommend keeping them short. An editor will follow up if they are interested in learning more.

If you have thoughts about whether you’d like this piece to run in print or digitally, please include that in your pitch. Print works about six months out and is generally looking for pieces around 350 words; digital works about two months out and assigns at a variety of lengths.

Our Forward 50 Restaurants, Future 40 tastemakers list and Wine Star Awards are all selected by the editorial team. There is no formal nomination process; if you’d like to submit a person or business for consideration, please email us a short biography and we will keep it on file.

Proposals submitted via phone will not be considered. Please send all pitches via email to

For queries regarding photography submissions, contact Visuals Producer Jesse Reiter.
