Wine Cellar Management App

Hi all,

I am currently in the process of building a house, which will include a small wine cellar. I haven't really tracked wines before (they tend to not last too long, anyway!) but thought it might now be useful to do it.

I have looked at several apps, and CellarTracker appears to be the best at the moment for management, however, it lacks any real visual interface.

I'd really like to have something that had a display something like iTunes (other music management software is available) where maybe it is possible to scroll through labels, and have a nice visual representation of what wines you have - perhaps it could even display where in the wine cellar the bottles are.

Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Wine Cellar Management App

Not exactly what you are looking for but the vivino app has basic cellar management functions. You can scan the lable of the wine and add the bottles to your cellar. then when you drink one you can tell it you drank it and it reduces the quantity. you can then search your cellar and see how many of each wine you have, but it doesn't have any way to show where in your cellar it is. I had been using it to keep track of wines I liked and then they added the cellar feature and I started using that.

Re: Wine Cellar Management App

Yeah, I use that myself, but mostly for a quick scan and rating check in the shop.

Perhaps what I am looking for is a bit specific, but something like Oenophile Wine Cellar Management ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIixwYSuVFo ) would be great, except that costs $4,000!

Re: Wine Cellar Management App

Even more reason to have a cataloguing system!

Re: Wine Cellar Management App

If you are building, maybe you can have an actual wine cave hewn out of the bedrock. Do you have a builder in mind for your flooring and racking? I’ve had the best results with redwood and mahogany.

Are you talking thousands of bottles or just a few hundred? Depending on your needs, maybe a custom software solution makes the most sense.

Re: Wine Cellar Management App

I can't help with the app, and don't collect wine, but I do have a decent sized library. I can find any book I'm after in just a few seconds, thanks to a very strict and comprehensive system of organisation: perhaps you could do something similar? Maybe organise by country of origin, white on left, red on right, sparkling below, or whatever? The key is to be consistent.

It won't help with stocktaking, of course, but half the battle is won if you can find what you want quickly.
