Why one-line reviews? Because we think that a one-line review, combined with a single, simple numerical rating, is far more useful for most people than the 100-point scale and 1000 words of wankery.
What are your credentials? They’re exactly the same as 99.99% of all other wine drinkers in the world—we know what we like. And we’ve drank a fair amount of wine. A lot of people think we’re spot-on. But if you’re looking for a master sommelier with multiple awards to their name, well, hey, there are plenty of other reviewers out there.
Are you guys serious? Yep. Absolutely. We aren’t doing this to screw with people. We’re doing this because we’ve seen far, far too many people standing in front of the wall o booze, squinting at the reviews, and trying to figure out what wine is really good. So every review is our honest opinion–even if we do try to keep it entertaining.
Are you making money at this? Hahahhahahahaaaaaahaha! Um, no. This is something we do for fun. If, however, you’re interested in sending us wine to review or becoming our sponsor, please be in touch.
How come you don’t do video anymore? We started with video reviews. We did over 140 of them, in fact. Trawl the archives and click on them–they’re still there. But, after a while, we realized that video was eating way too much time to justify without a solid sponsor behind us. And, later on, we realized that if you’re just looking for what wines are good and what wines suck, video is a pretty crappy medium when you get right down to it. So, one-line wine reviews!
Can I participate? Hell yes! Wineass isn’t just The Donk anymore. You can add your own rating and comments to our reviews. If you’d like to review wines yourself, set up a Twitter account and point us at some examples of your one-liners. We can’t promise fame and fortune, but hey, who knows?
