New Year’s Resolutions

A few things we can all do in 2014

Clean up your cellar

First and foremost it’s time to make some order where there is none, or little. My cellar is a mess, a true inventory last occurred some two years ago. Many bottles have been consumed since, and even more added to the disorder. Keeping an organized cellar is not simply a symptom of OCD. It’s an important step in maintain order in one’s drinking life. Three distinct benefits arise from an orderly, or at least well documented cellar.

1 - You know what you have so you don’t go buying more of a particular wine, or miss an opportunity to add wine to your cellar that you’ve been missing.

2 - Physically handling your wine can reveal issues with them. There is nothing quite as disturbing in the cellar than that sticky little drop of wine hanging off the neck of one of your prized bottles.

3 - Knowing what you have can make it much easier to plan to drink what you want. Instead of rummaging around in the cellar, knowing what you have and where it is makes it easier to drink your wine.

    Great article. I'd like to read more about some of the up and coming regions within the US (e.g. Virgina) that I might not try without a recommendation from you. And I would love to see your take on the Finger Lakes and how they compare with other Riesling producing regions.

    I going to steal the last resolution, I Feel a little like an alcoholic tasting my wines alone. But How do i invite my friends to drink wine with me? They do not appreciate wine as much as i do.
