It’s growing, but after a year of shopping it’s not much to brag about. Not all the wine in the collection comes with a cork in the bottle, either (we’re still hoarding a few bottles of Boone’s Farm Blackberry Ridge).
Because we’re a high tech family we set out to find a Mac app to help us manage our fledgling wine collection.
A Snooty App For Wine Drinkers
Jeffrey suggested that we could be more impressive to our friends and family with a wine collection that was managed by a Mac app.
Cadent wineCellar for Mac is an app that stores information about the wine in your collection.
All you have to do is add information about your wine, or use the Research button to find information online.
Everything can be viewed as a thumbnail list, long list view, and browser view. After that, wineCellar gets a little snooty.
Search for wine via country, vineyard, or varietal. Set up a buy list for your next wine shopping.
You control all the details for each bottle, including where in your cavernous wine cellar the bottle is stored (I’m joking; our ‘cellar’ is about three feet by six feet and not full).
All the information you add to wineCellar goes into a database which can be moved to other Macs or a Windows PC.
You can even scan wine bottle labels into the database.
I like this app but it’s an effort to set up. If you plan to have your own wine collection, start small, add the wines you have to the tracking app, rather than waiting until you have 50 bottles and then try to catch up.
