The starting point for any
wine journey is an accurate inventory. That is never fun.
I can take care of the mundane inventory work for you,
and also secure optimal
storage for your wine.
Wine is worth more than money,
but every so often an independent evaluation of the market value, and/or replacement value, of a collection is necessary for many reasons, from insurance
Define your wine destination
and map out how to get there.
Key questions include:
- How many mature bottles do you need vs bottles that are 5-10 years down the road?
- How many red, white, rose, sparkling?
- Favorite grape/region/producer?
Which wines are ready
to drink today? What should I serve at my party next week?
Do I have enough mature reds on hand for the holidays?
Mapping your collection by maturity gives you the answers to all those questions and makes choosing bottles to drink simple.
The secondary market for
wine is complicated and opaque. If you have wine to sell, appointing a third party to collect quotes and manage negotiations will save
you a great deal of work.
