A lot of praise for Cellartracker

#1 Post by Bruce Rudman » June 30th, 2017, 6:21 am

As I was entering a purchase today, I thought back over the nine years I have used this program. I cannot think of a single program that I use on a regular basis that has been as trouble-free, and which so easily integrates with my phone, iPad, or even a remote computer. Even more importantly, as my "collection" has grown, it has not needed updating, or even updated computers, which my office has had to do to keep up with technology.

So, a little praise for Eric and his team!

Can't praise it enough. I signed up in August 2005, so going on 12 years for me. Though others may be attached to their spreadsheets or other software, I do not believe there is anything those can do that CT cannot, and much they cannot do that CT can. My browser opens with tabs for CT, the NYT and the WSJ.

We recently moved all our wine - 2 collections accumulated separately over 20 years or more, combined into one - from 5 different locations into our new home cellar. We took the time to organize everything by region, producer, wine and vintage. CT was essential to make it all work (some small glitches like some producers listed under first name for some wines and last name for others), but all-in-all it was a rock star. The process took several weeks of many hours every day, but it would have taken far, far longer without CT and we probably would have given up before finishing.

Can't praise Eric and his team enough for the vision and the follow through.

I'll join the choir! A great piece of SW that almost never fails in any way. Truly amazing.

So many systems, including so many SW systems, are designed with little understanding of the users. This is the opposite. VERY user friendly.

#157 so I have been a very satisfied and enthusiastic supporter of CT from the beginning. Eric is a great and incredibly talented guy. When you mix passion with talent you get magical things like Cellar Tracker.

Bravo Eric!

Why do you say that to "as to add my cellar in at this point would be impossible"? CT has the ability to bulk upload a spreadsheet of your wines.

Parroting Rich N, literally a technology that is integral to my lifestyle. As important to me as Microsoft Office...Oh, that's a Levine program too. Can't praise it enough. And Drew, while I don't know you, I'm confident in saying you'd not regret spending the time to get your collection on CT. Or hire someone to. I was "not working" in early 2006 for a few months, and loaded in the area of 6,000 - 7,000 bottles over a week on a laptop in my cellar. It's really not that hard!

Definitely not. Jonathan has added whole collections of scotch, where the majority of items had to be created from scratch. I predict well over 95% of your wines will be in there already. You'll never regret the time spent.

Joined 2007 and very light use at first but that quickly changed. Recently built out a cellar in our basement and was happy to have had a majority of my wines already entered into my cellar. And when not, no big deal.

Love the label function. I assigned column/row to each wine, so with the labels I would assign a bin, print out and label 5-10 cases at a time all in the comfort of my basement bar. So time spent in the chilly cellar was kept to a minimum as I needed to do is look at label for bottle a lot.

In my case, they even uploaded it for me. Ran parallel with Excel for a short while until I realized CT is so far superior

I'm a huge fan. I use it for my personal use. I've also used it for the wine bar in Wilmington, DE I founded. I'm honored that the new owners still proudly integrate with CT via iPads at the wine bar (http://www.domainehudson.com).

CT's use with commercial applications is wonderful. I'm surprised most restaurants with excellent wine programs are not using it already. You can easily print restaurant wine lists from it and if utilizing iPads, view the CT notes right from the wine list. An invaluable tool IMHO.

+1, I've really liked using the program to keep track of the wines I've tried and what I thought about them. It's true that there's a lot of variability in tasting notes/scores but following people I've met from here has really broadened my horizons. The Cellartracker staff have always been incredibly prompt in responding to any queries/requests, too, which I really appreciate.

#814 July 2004. Worth every penny of the 44 a day I pay to use it.

Back in 2004 - 2005 I had to add a few wine definitions. These days and for probably 8+ years, essentially never. A new vintage once in a great while. But then I haven't bought from lists in several years so that's probably why.

Love, love, love CellarTracker.

Member #163 so an early adopter. Eric helped me import over 1000 TNs and about 1000 bottles. And that was before the database of known bottlings was as extensive as it is now. I encourage all of those who are discouraged by the size of their collection to give it a try.

I have been a long-time curmudgeon about the (lack of) utility of crowd-sourced scores and evaluations. But as I've gotten to know the preferences of a group of other CTers I find it's become very useful for ready-to-drink queries.

One of my few complaints on the geeky side is inactive cellars stay active for ever. Case in point I just drank my last bottle of 2001 Brunello purchased prior to joining in 2009. I am curious to who has wines I do. There is one user? who has not accessed their cellar since 2008 and still shows 11 bottles/one consumed from a case purchased in 2007. I am quite sure these bottles were sold through Benchmark to others which show up in my notes by others on my wines. Small complaint and mine are now gone. How many phantom bottles remain? [cry.gif]

Eric helped me migrate from my Excel spreadsheet using an import tool that he built to facilitate this. I haven't looked back.

I am not the greatest at managing my inventory. I will occasionally forget to take a bottle out of Cellartracker. It is rare however now.

The fact that I can send a complete copy of my cellar to my insurer is a big deal. It has a valuation that they accept too!

I have complete control now over what is out there I have purchased and hasn't been delivered. That is big to me. In the pre-Cellartracker days that was the most difficult thing to track. Now it is a breeze.

Thanks Eric.

If your collection is so big that it would be difficult to put it all in to CellarTracker, it means your cellar is quite valuable. That means, you likely need to be insure the collection. When I went to buy insurance for my wine cellar a few years ago, the insurance company told me I needed a record of what I have in my cellar. That was the impetus for me to put my wines on CellarTracker. It took a good bit of time to get everything on CellarTracker and it takes work to keep it up to date. But, in the long run it is worth it.

good thread, got me to using it this weekend. Had Vivino but dit like it. Signed up a year ago for CT but never used it. Finally did the email verification and gave them some money. It is nice that all I need to type in is the year, name and quantity. Makes get them in pretty quick.

A lot of praise for Cellartracker

Member #163 so an early adopter. Eric helped me import over 1000 TNs and about 1000 bottles. And that was before the database of known bottlings was as extensive as it is now. I encourage all of those who are discouraged by the size of their collection to give it a try.

I have been a long-time curmudgeon about the (lack of) utility of crowd-sourced scores and evaluations. But as I've gotten to know the preferences of a group of other CTers I find it's become very useful for ready-to-drink queries.
Other than I am user #342, ditto this!

Is anyone still complaining about the "new" look of CT? ;D.

If there was a hall of fame for wine (probably is i don't know) Eric should be in it.

Member #5162. Been loving CellarTracker since early 2005. Eric has done a brilliant job creating and maintaining a site that has no peers.

I echo all of the praise for CT.
And the app has been a great addition. I have wine in three different locations; I love being able to take my phone and find my wine.

I am member 7422. Joined August 13, 2005. Eric gets an A+ for customer service. When I built my cellar and had to convert all of my old locations (box on floor to left of door next to metal rack) to my new location (20-07-F), Eric volunteered to do it automatically if I gave him a spreadsheet. He saved me tens, if not hundreds, of hours of new data entry. I was afraid to post a thank you at the time because I didn't want everyone to ask him to do it for them and cause him to waste so much more time for incompetent customers like me, but he certainly deserves it. I think the last wine I actually had to enter manually was a seyval blanc made by Khmer refugees in the Finger Lakes about 5 years ago, so you can get an idea of how comprehensive the database is.

We just had a dinner party and needed two bottles of each wine for adequate pours. With CT, choosing the wines took less than ten minutes, and that included pulling the bottles. What non-Chard whites do I have where we have at least three bottles so I can take two and leave at least one back? Gee, that took a whole 25 seconds. What Aubert chards do I have with at least 3 bottles? 15 seconds. etc.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!
