With the holidays coming up, there's no better time to take stock of your cellar and work out exactly what you have stored, what needs to be drunk, and what could do with a bit more down time. And, of course, what still needs to be added.
To make it easier, you need wine cellar software or a wine cellar tracking app – a way to keep all the wines in your cellar in your pocket (so when you're at the local bottle shop you know exactly what's missing).
How to organise your wine?
The Halliday Virtual Cellar is a cellar management tool that tracks your wine collection with ease.
Using the Virtual Cellar, you can save wines directly from the Wine Companion site, create entries for wines the Halliday Tasting Team haven't yet tasted, and create wishlists for those wines you've been eyeing off. You can also add personal ratings and tasting notes, and export your collection to an Excel document.
Store and track your personal wine collection with the Virtual Cellar.
The wine cellar software allows you to track your recent activity – the wines added, removed and consumed – and stats including the number of bottles, number of whites versus reds, your favourite varietals, regions and vintages.
When it comes to sorting the wines, take advantage of the filter system that lets you order your wines by vintage, drink to dates, or the date tasted.
And when you've finished, you can export your Virtual Cellar into a spreadsheet - helpful if you're looking to insure your collection, or looking to send some of your most prized wines to auction.
