How do I become a Top Reviewer?
All our customer reviewers are ranked. You can achieve a higher ranking not only by writing reviews but importantly by writing high quality reviews that help other community members.  All community members are able to rate customer reviews as helpful or not helpful. The more reviews you write and the more helpful votes you get the higher your chances of becoming a top ranked reviewer. Also newer reviews count more than older reviews – so it can be easier than it looks to move quickly up the rankings.

How do I know where I rank?
You can view our customer reviewer rankings at Rankings are updated once each day.

Do I have to use my real name to review wines?
We encourage you to use your real name but if you’d rather not that’s no problem either. You can select a pen name for your reviews to appear under in your My Account section.

Are the reviews censured in anyway and will I only become a Top Reviewer by writing positive reviews?
Absolutely not! We are committed to giving our customers all the information they need to make smart wine buying decisions. As long as comments meet our review guidelines they will be published.

How can I rank other reviews as helpful or not helpful?
At the bottom of each customer review is the question “Was this review helpful to you?” Simply click on the “yes” or “no” button depending on what you thought. You must be logged in to vote.
