What is the Brown Hill Estate Tasting Panel?

It’s a collective of Brown Hill Estate fans just like you. We select a group of 20 different people to taste a selection of our wines each quarter. After we send you the wines (at no cost) we ask that you pen your own reviews on our website, and if you feel so inclined, post your thoughts about these wines on social media sites. 

How do we select the Brown Hill Estate Tasting Panel?
We will create one of these tasting panels every quarter, so we’ll send out an email four times a year, calling for entries. After we’ve read your applications, we pick the most inspiring of the bunch. Don’t worry – if you’re not selected first time round, feel free to apply for the next panel. And just because you’ve already been a member of a tasting panel once doesn’t mean you can’t apply again.

How will I know if I’ve been selected?
Once you’ve applied, we’ll let you know that your entry has been received via email. Then keep a look out for our next eNewsletter, which will include the list of 20 members of the first tasting panel. Then the wines will make their sweet way to your specified address.

What’s the catch?
There is no catch. We truly value your feedback and would love to know what you think of our wines as they evolve and change over time and with each vintage.
