Organizing the Wine Cellar, Part Two

Remember my big wine cellar organizing project? I’ve made great progress…

As some of you may recall from a previous blog, I recently decided it was time to clean out and reorganize the wine cellar in my Winter House basement at the farm. The first phase was to empty the cellar and give the space a good, thorough cleaning. Next, I categorized all the wine by vintage year, and neatly stored them back on the shelves. It was a time-consuming chore, but well worth the effort. Now it will be much easier to locate specific wines, liquors and other spirits the next time I entertain.

The final phase will be to properly scan, tag, and inventory each and every bottle and label. I will share those images and tips in a future blog.
