Poll: How do you sort your surplus wine


Food & Wine dishes up a particularly meaty issue for wine lovers this month. One feature that caught my eye is a wine cellar design guru who says he likes to divide wine cellars by region, sometimes even one room for each region (wowza).

Is that how you organize your surplus wine inventory? Have your say in the latest poll!

  1. I do quite a lot of work in this area for people. It’s quite interesting what drives people to collect and or cellar. I’ve seen one cellar arranged by the number of points the wines scored!

  2. Paul – outrageous! Thanks for sharing.

  3. My wine inventory is certainly not “surplus”!

    I keep my few hundred bottles until they have the best age to drink, not because I got too many 😉

    For the record, I keep my bottles pr. region, although I have a shelf only for sweet wines (Ice wine, Trockenbeerenauslese, Vendages tardives etc.).

  4. As far as I am concerned, the enlightened move is to enter your wine into CellarTracker.

    This way you can “browse” your collection at any time by region, varietal, etc and not have to go anywhere near the bottles – well, except, of course, to fetch one.
