Support Matching Food & Wine

A lot of you have told me how helpful has been to you over the years - and asked why I give away such useful information for free.

Well, I guess I could charge but it would involve putting a significant proportion of the site behind a paywall and I don’t really want to do that. Nor do I want to go down the route of putting a lot of sponsored content on the site.

However it does cost money to run without even factoring in my time. I couldn’t do it - or offer such great prizes - without my team (thanks, David, Monica and Helen). I’d like to make it better still by creating more useful content and bringing in more contributors but this will only happen if it pays its way.

So if you DO find it useful, particularly if you run a business and have made use of it professionally I’d really appreciate it if you’d make a donation towards the running costs.

Alternatively, if you'd like more of my personal food and drink recommendations you could become a paid subscriber to my Substack newsletter Eat This, Drink That at

How much would you like to donate?
