" I have been using Uncorked Cellar for many years now in Windows. Am also testing the Mac (apple) version that will be released later this year.

I have found the system to be quite easy to use. I tend to not use some of the advanced features (I don’t use the wine cellar graphic capability, nor do I use the bar coding capability at this time). One of the most significant benefits I get is to ensure I am drinking my wine before it goes past its peak. That is why I originally purchased the program. I use Full Mode, so cannot comment about the bar coding capability, but may take that plunge in the future. If I was loading a cellar from scratch, I would go that route.

When I built my cellar, I labeled the rows and columns of the racks like a spreadsheet. That is how I classify my bottle inventory. You can easily create user-defined fields to extend the information you may want to capture. I created a location field as well as a price (vs value) field. I also have subscriptions to wine ratings (I use Wine Spectator). The program can link directly to this and a number of other sources, as well as extended sources that help to value your cellar.

The best way to get a feel for the program is to download a trial version and load a few of your bottles. Suggest you view the video at the link below, and use the extensive help available in the program, if needed. I have still never found the need to go through the help, as the use of the program is intuitive.

Finally, the support you will receive from Uncorked Cellar is - in a word - outstanding. Brian (the author) is very responsive.
