The New Year is the perfect time to get organised and have a real spring clean of your wine collection. It is inevitable that you will have a few gaps in your wine rack following the indulgence of the festive season. This is also the time of year when you are most likely to be up to date with the contents of your wine collection, as playing host over Christmas and New Year probably involve a lot of searching to find the perfect wines to serve to your guests! From your favourite bottle of red to that dusty bottle in the corner you’ve never got round to opening, now is the perfect time to get your collection organised and ready for the year ahead.

Grouping your Wine

The easiest way to organise your range is to take a full inventory of your assortment of wine. Depending on the size of your collection, this can take anything from an hour to an entire afternoon, but if you are going to do it, it is best to do it properly. Make sure that every bottle is clearly labelled and in its proper place. If you have a large or varied collection, it could also be worthwhile to sort your bottles into groups for easier access. The most straightforward way of doing this is to arrange them based on types of wine. Group your bottles into red, white, rosé, sparkling, dessert, cooking wines, or any other ideas for groups that you may have – after all, it’s your collection!

We recommend compiling a list of the entirety of your collection. This way, next time you want to restock your wine rack and acquire a new bottle of wine, you will have a complete, up-to-date list to hand to work from. It can also help you to establish patterns and clearly notice any gaps in your collection.
