I know that there have been some threads on the board discussing this website before; but, I thought I would add this new thread anyway. I am a little late to the scene having only started using this site to keep track of my wine collection within the last 2 months or so. However, in that time I have been very impressed with the speed and functionality of the site.
The site can be accessed at Cellartracker.com.
For now it is a free site through the end of 2005 (although donations are accepted). Eric LeVine who runs the site has recently made this his full time job. It is worth checking out.
We love Cellartracker. I would second the reommendation strongly.
Not a better program out there for yourself, but its also interesting to see other's wine collections and the aggregate numbers for the site as well.
Thanks, this thread reminded me I should finish entering my wines...it is a GREAT site!
I had not taken inventory of my wine for over 2 years. I had assumed that I had about 600 bottles. After I entered all of my wine into the database I discovered I had about 825 bottles. When Cellartracker added up what I paid for all my wine I called my insurance agent.
I wholeheartedly agree with the above recommendations. I have happily given money to Eric Levine to help support cellartracker. There are obviously expenses involved and I hope Eric can continue his excellent work there.
As for VM's last comments, they strike a note with me too. I just haven't called the insurance agent yet, but I will.

I use Cellartracker and think it's great. However, as I understand it, the owner just retired from Microsoft at around the age of 34 so I'm not sure he needs the donations! Must be nice...
He has the skills to program a website. Has has the vision to make it available to the world. He has the charity to make it free for now. He has the guts to quit his job and see if he can make a living working for himself.
Must be nice.
And anytime you ask a question, it is answered - usually within minutes! It is truly a great tool.

I obviously agree. I wish I had the money and knowledge to do the same. I think everyone agrees it is a great site.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Trigsdad,
Add me to the pile of VERY happy cellartracker users!!!!
Great job Eric!
Agree, it is a great program.
My only problem, and it has nothing to do with them - I do not stay on top of my inventory! After 6 months, it wasn't accurate for me and I only have 250 bottles or so. 800 bottles? forget it.
I just spent the last two days putting my wines into CellarTracker. I strongly recommend the program.
My only gripe is that it looks like a Microsoft Programmer developed the site. Oh, he did =)
Seriously though, it's a nice program and I just need to find time to add notes and drinkability dates.
Been using it for about a yr. now. CellarTracker rocks! Eric keeps adding interesting options. Alot of "value" built into this program . . .
I love the printable wine list he added. Looks really cool for dinner parties.
You told me you had some 600 bottles.
I believe there are some bottles of mine in Chicago that I still don't have.
Now I find out you have 800. Pretty suspicious.
Sorry I am late to the party on this thread, and thanks everyone for the very kind words. You have no idea how much satisfaction it brings me to see folks enjoying the software and using it to help enhance their wine hobby/habot.
Hey, I'm actually 35.
And while my parents keep telling their friends I am retired, nothing could be further from the truth. I'm working my butt off on the website, but I love every second of it!
CellarTracker is almost an accident, something I created just for my own use a couple of years ago. Then I showed it to some folks in my tasting group and they wanted to use it. Then someone posted on eBob. Then I got silly and decided to have a 'beta'. Anyway, one thing led to another and now my hobby is my triple-time obsession.
What I want to do is to create enough of a revenue stream that the site can continue long after I turn into dust, as a lot of folks are placing a lot of faith (and a lot of data) in the site.
I do want to keep the site very affordable for everyone, and the donations do help a lot in that regard.
It rhymes with wine...
A bit of useless trivia: I was never actually a programmer at Microsoft but rather more of a project manager and feature designer. It happens that I do also like to write code, and the website is a great outlet in that regard.

Well if my .02 is worth anything Cellartracker is a great site, just started using it this week and I am hooked. Way to go Eric.

Another recommendation here. Great site. I just finished loading my cellar onto this site, and am very impressed. Good job, Eric.
how long did it take you to put your cellar in it ????
iam still working on it!!!!!!!
I *love* Cellartracker. It sates the stats-man in me among other things.
4 hours, 1 good bottle of Barbaresco. Hang in there bez!!
Oh....and type carefully. Most wines I owned were already in the database. If you find yourself having to manually input a wine completely you probably should check your spelling ( ) Great site. I guess I'm gonna have to send Eric some $$.......
