Keep your wine cellar organized and stocked with apps and online resources. Learn what to drink now, what to age, and how to keep track of your liquid treasures with the right mobile app.
If you have always been a wine lover, you may be thinking of taking your commitment to the next level. This can including having a cellar at home, so let’s talk about apps that can help you learn which are the best wines to start a cellar with. For example, if you download the wine enthusiast app, you can read articles about which wines are popular at the moment, get advice from experts about the ideal wines to have on hand, and which to pair with food. You can find other apps that focus on how to tell when to drink wine, whether a wine should be enjoyed immediately or if you should tuck it away in your cellar to age and drink later. A good "when to drink wine" app should give you the basics on which varietals you should age for a special occasion and which you should open any evening in the near future. You may find that a lot of wines are meant to be consumed quickly and that only a small amount of wines really need to be aged or cellared. These apps should help you learn how long to store wine like Bordeaux. These incredible wines, especially during good vintage years (which these apps will be able to identify for you) can easily be aged for 15-30 years. On the other hand, there are reds, such as a Pinot Noir, that can be aged for a couple of years, but it will eventually lose its fragrant nose and bright cherry taste, so it is a wine you should drink now, and often.
Knowing which wines yous should have filling your cellar is only half the battle. Now it's time to organize your cellar, which apps can help with. In this case, the cellar tracker app or something similar should become your go-to app for knowing what's in your cellar, tracking each bottles' value, understanding tasting notes on wines, and information about new wines to purchase.
You can also use an app like Vivino Cellar Management, which features a barcode scanner for wine inventory. These kinds of features really help once you have established your cellar for a couple years, forget what you bought, and decided to age. The next special occasion you can open your app and read through your list and save time instead of wasting it by pulling bottles out trying to find the right one. With these types of organizing apps, you can become your own personal wine curator and build a collection to not only be able to enjoy drinking but also seeing your investment improve the longer you age some of those special wines. You can also use these apps to organize your spirit or beer collection. You don’t have to just be a wine geek to get value out of these apps. If you are a connoisseur of all libations, having your collections in the palm of your hand allow you to have delicious drinks anytime you want.
