Wine Cellar Record Book
A Wine Record book has many uses, firstly as a record of the stock which you have in your cellar. Make a note when you buy a wine, how much it cost, when it should be drunk. Then keep a note of each bottle you take out so that you have an accurate stock record.
We use our wine record as a kind of wine diary keeping a note of who we share the wine with and the occasion. It is wonderful to be able to look back on happy times. So much of enjoyment of good wine is who we drink it with. Lucy’s husband, Henry, and the marvellous notes he kept on the wines in his collection are the inspiration for our Wine Record.
“The drinker will be the judge and he will not be judged by others. His verdict is paramount and is answerable to no one. The taster is king. And his opinion will be formed as much as by what is in his head and his heart as by what is in the bottle. That is the beauty of wine.”
Henry Goulding, Thoughts on a Wine Cellar (2017)

Using Your Wine Record to improve your Wine Knowledge
The best way to learn about wine is to keep a record of the wines that you drink. Use this book to record your tasting notes and to remember what you drink the wine with. Did you pair it with a meal or drink it as an aperitif. As the wine matures does the taste change? Everyone loves different wines and your impressions are important.
