Red Wine For Your Reading Pleasure

Choosing Wine Cellar Accessories

There are a number of nifty items and gadgets that can help
you organize, maintain and enjoy your wine cellar. For those
of you that have a larger wine cellar, keeping track of what
is added or removed from the collection can be a pain. One
can use either a paper record keeping system, or jump into
the twenty first century and incorporate some electronic
record keeping system.

Barcode readers are a wonderful way to keep track of the
different wines that are added to or removed from your
wine cellar. "But what kinds of electronic barcode reading
contraptions will I need to buy in order to use a barcode
system?", you may ask. It's really very simple. There are very
easy to use plug and play barcode readers that can plug
right into the USB port of your computer.

USB barcode scanners typical run between $120-$175 USD
and can automatically discriminate between all the popular
bar codes. You can use your own barcode tags or input any
required information to use the barcodes already located on
each bottle of wine. When it's time to uncork or add a new
bottle of wine to your collection, simply point the barcode
scanner at the barcode label and pull the trigger to update
your records.

Printable wine tags are another must have wine cellar
accessory. These tags come on a sheet that can be fed into
your inkjet printer. You can create your own custom layout
or notes, as well as include a barcode if you so desire. There
are also regular hand written wine bottle tags that can be
more affordable if you do not need to be able to print the
wine bottle tags on your printer.

If you require a tag system that is more durable than paper
wine bottle tags, there are also heavy duty plastic wine
bottle tags that fit securely over the neck of the bottle.
These can be reused as needed and will last for years and
years. These types of wine bottle tags can be written on
with any felt tip pen or a dry erase board marker.

If you'd like a ready-to-go wine bottle tag with custom
barcodes system, check out the Vinote ? wine tags.
These wine bottle tags last a very long time and
adhere snugly to wine bottles. Every tag is uniquely
numbered and bar coded. The bar code section is
perforated so that it may be folded out of sight or
easily torn off.

If you're not ready to update your wine storage
record keeping, and prefer regular paper records,
there are a number of attractive wine catalogue
books already formatted for just such record
keeping. A decent wine catalogue book should be
small enough to carry with you if you will bring it
along on trips to other wine cellars.

A hygro-thermometer is a very necessary component
to any wine cellar, as it ensures that the wine is
resting at the appropriate temperature and
humidity. These devices do not adjust temperature
or relative humidity, but can be paired with the right
devices in order to make sure that everything is
running smoothly.
