Editors' review

Though utilitarian in design, Cellar The Ultimate Wine Companion catalogs exhaustive wine collection details. A busy interface offers numerous options to manage wines and more, though the Help file lessens the learning curve of getting started. The multitabbed window to add a new wine may be daunting initially, but some fields are prefilled and you can opt not to add images, costs, or tasting notes. Wine lists are organized by country, region, and appellation, and the winery, label, vintage and other details are shown for each entry. Practical tools like Geography Data, which shows regions and appellations for a country, and an encyclopedia of wine terms that goes the extra step by including audio files of the correct pronunciation for many entries will help broaden your knowledge base. The 25-wine limitation is reasonable enough to "experience" the program, though the hefty 31MB download is a potential turnoff. You'll have to be database-savvy to use this wine-management program, but it does offer some fairly nice features.

    "Still have not found anything better than this program"

    September 09, 2012   |   By RandyGil

    Version: Cellar The Ultimate Wine Companion 3.5.4

    Pros

    Has all the right info fields to know what you have and where, plus plenty of little extra ways to show things.

    Cons

    None that I have ever found

    Summary

    Probably the best wine cellar program out there. Unfortunately they shut down in 2010 and can no longer be bought or updated. Last version released was 3.6.1 which still works, at least mine does, but once it crashes it will be the end. CellarTracker took over for them, but this is an on-line cellar system not in your computer. I tried it, has it's points, but not what I am looking for.
