How do I keep track of all my wines? Knowing exactly what wine you have in the cellar is very important. Having this information handy makes it easier to work out what to drink, when to drink them by and exactly where in the cellar I can find the wine I want to drink. Ever gone looking for a wine, but can’t find it? Ever come across a wine and realise its way past its drinking window? Grrrr!
I try and avoid these problems by regularly updating my cellar information online on cellartracker and find it relatively easy to use. There 2 apps available for your smart devices that interface with cellartracker nicely and make it very easy to see visually what wines I have. There is “cor.kz” that works on both iPhone and iPad and “cellarVU”, which only works on iPad.
Just updated my wine collection on cellartracker and here is an insight to my current holdings:
New Zealand 11.7%
Few quick comments
Australia used to represent almost 90% when I first started tracking my cellar in 2007
Of the Australian wines, a very large proportion used to be from South Australia. This has reduced quite quickly and there is now a better balance with wines from Western Australia and to a slightly lesser extent, Victoria and New South Wales.
I love Spanish wines, so why does it make up such a small part of the cellar? I’m not sure either. Must fix this
Have only just got into German Riesling. Looking forward to seeing this part of the cellar grow.
