Thank you Maureen! This thread has already stopped me from making 2 wine purchases. The thought of reporting that my inventory had gone up next month instead of down or holding steady was too embarrassing.

If I don't open wine I'm not buying any (he said hopefully and with totally unwarranted optimism).

Yes, you meet 1 or 2 of the criteria for cellar reduction!

Glad to help. I was reading a Fine Wine Review on an Alsace producer and a tasting and pulled up my inventory to see which of his wines I own and realized I hadn’t entered a couple of bottles I’d bought last month. So my inventory went up even tho I haven’t bought anything!

Im still in buying mode. I’m turning 64 next month (yup, queue up that Beatles song). My cellar has been hovering around 925 bottles for the past year or so. That will change when I retire in 2 years. My wine purchases will drop dramatically when I stop working. As the saying goes, “Get while the gettins’ good.”

I drank a bottle of wine tonight, and I did not buy any wine today...I looked, but did not buy...so my cellar reduction is underway.

I opened three bottles on Monday night for the NCAA Finals. I bought no bottles on Monday. (-3, but one of those was not in CT, so it only counts as -2)

Last night I found 38 empty slots in my cellar and promptly filled them with wine on the floor in cases that the legal ruling above indicated I could consider "in transit" and thus not on the list, so (+38)

After entering the 38 wines I found four slots that had two bottles per location because I had forgotten to remove them and cleaned that up. (-4).

Net for the week to date, +32. Not a good result.

That's why you have to count wine on the floor and pending bottles in the initial inventory. It's equivalent to having a huge banana split just before your first Weight Watchers weigh in.

Dropped from 1400 to 1200 bottles over last year. Will drop down to 1000 this year. Only buy daily drinkers now. None to hold.

No my ruling was the opposite. Everything you own whether still to be imported or at the store or in boxes on your floor counts as towards your starting. But because you already owned them, shelving them doesn’t change your count. But include them in your startung figure.

At the present rate of consumption, my current inventory would be perfect- If I were scheduled to reach the age of 21 in 2025 and I manage to live to the ripe old age of 175.

Fortunately all 3 of my bids at Sotheby's failed. I expected that, I didn't bid above the high estimate on any of them.

We were making progress then my wife says go out to the car and ask me move those 2 1/2 cases of wines into the cellar. Seems a friend of ours gave her 20 more bottles. Oh well, more drinking in store including a 1987 Corton Charlemagne that we opened for brunch on Sunday.

I dont track my inventory or purchase per se but I have made a conscious effort to taper back purchases considerably. Just got my 2 credit card bills and they both came in far lower than i would have expected. Its probably a good thing i wasnt paying attention to how much i was spending as it was about the same as my SoCal mortgage.

My efforts at reduction are shot this year due to three wine trips. One to Walla Walla already completed with disastrous results. Wine arrives daily. Upcoming trip to Napa & Sonoma will probably be the same buying binge. Then on to Willamette Valley this fall. I am screwed.

I think there's a high degree of seasonality . . . winter and fall tend to be accumulating seasons, because of various mailing lists plus Fall sales. Spring/summer tend to be reduction seasons as one drinks those wines. The true test isn't how much reduction you get over the summer, but how much over the winter.

For me, looking at things by month is not useful - your mileage may vary. Several years ago, I decided to try to reduce my inventory by two to three cases a year and I've reduced by 164 bottles in the past six years, primarily by reducing my purchases a bit; my consumption remains pretty stable. I am now 68 with 1,072 bottles. I'm not worried about not drinking all my wine, as I have nephews who take any leftovers when the time comes, or I may (try to) accelerate the rate of reduction.

Daily drinkers come and go and do not figure into my cellar tally as there is a consistent, diverse three to four case supply on hand, they do not get aged and therefore do not count in my "real" inventory.
After many decades in the fine and rare end of the biz: I have rare bottles, old bottles, bottles with emotional/sentimental attachments, bottles to consume with specific folks, bottles for tastings, bottles just for me and my honey and some cool mags, all of which number in the 500 bottle range.
If my health or palate starts to fail, I will reduce these numbers radically. If not, attrition will take four or five bottles per month. On Sat, two 1983's were opened, one blew minds.
The Wine Weasels tasting group discussions about which bottle(s) are wanted on a controlled drip tube taped to the corner of my mouth when my health is in serious decline, have been determined. I do not want to check out before the last 1959 is consumed. The case of juice for my wake has been determined as well. Party on, Garth!
Dad lived to be 89 and was not overly health conscious. My honey is a veggie and I rarely eat red meat, mostly seafood and poultry. I hike several times a week.
I will revisit my case(s) later and with any luck, or with no runaway truck bearing down on me...L8R

I keep telling myself that if (a) I stop wine buying full stop, and (b) I keep going through wine at the same rate as in my 40’s, I only have 11 years of wine.

Had some people over to the house this past weekend, so ended the month net down by 8 bottles! 32 in and 40 consumed.

Sorry, Maureen - I only keep accurate records of when things are purchased, not when they are delivered, so my numbers will reflect additions at purchase time.

I have hit the storage limit, time to drink down the overflow. Was hard at first, but now feels good to pass on the offers.

Sorry, Maureen - I only keep accurate records of when things are purchased, not when they are delivered, so my numbers will reflect additions at purchase time.
When purchased is correct because that is when you own it
