For the year:

Purchased: 147
Consumed: 144

Net gain of 3 for the year. While ultimately a fail, much better than last year. New Year resolution is to limit purchases to no more than 1 case in 2020. Almost 9 hours in and I’m doing great! Only 8756 more hours to go...

The last week of the year resulted in more purchases than the prior couple of months combined. A few more 2008 Dom (I think; we'll see after the holiday whether they honor the sale), a bunch of Jose Michel rosè 375s, and a few 2014 Vilmart & Cie Cellier Brut at a price I couldn't pass up. Back on the wagon.

Final year end numbers;

Bought: 121
Sold: 226
Drank: 237

Net Change: -342 bottles

Actually pretty good outcome and hoping to get purchase down below 100 in 2020. Annual purchases in 2019 were the lowest since 2005.

2019 was a good year toward my goal of downsizing my cellar. A couple more years like this and I will be at what I consider to be an ideal cellar size.

2019 - Bought 171 and consumed 307 for a reduction of 136. Yea!

December - bought 16 and consumed 26 for a reduction of 10.

I did the math and was up about 450 for 2019. Shameful. I resolve to invert this for 2020.

We've been on a ketogenic diet since January 2, which didn't bode well for my numbers this month. I guess it was inevitable that I should fall off the purchasing wagon while on the drinking wagon.

Purchased: 83
Consumed: 16

The bottles consumed were either drunk on Jan 1 or mostly by guests at two dinners we hosted. We've been totally dry otherwise.

Also in my defense, 2 cases of those bottles purchased aren't really for us. One of our favorite QPRs - possibly the greatest sub-$20 red I know - was offered mid-month. I knew my lazy family and friends would want some, but would probably miss the opportunity, so I bought 2 cases for them - we have 2 cases of our own in the cellar. My father-in-law has already taken one (not reflected in the consumed total).

My unoffical/terribly inaccurate count has me at 512 and I'm about to grab a baker's dozen from my LWS, so that puts me at 525. I both want to buy less and consume less this year; I'm hoping to end 2020 at 450 or less.

Also...I just remembered a case I didn't enter...I'm at 537...goal will still be 450 or under.

For 2019, purchased 15, consumed 61.

More than made up for the reduction in wine with Scotch purchases. [stirthepothal.gif]

Off to a slow start in 2020.. I will blame it on mailing list purchases from Carlisle and Quilceda Creek. For January I consumed 26 and bought 24 for a net reduction of 2 bottles.

Started 2019 with a plan to reduce the cellar by 150-200 bottles, augmenting regular consumption by selling some. Sold about 150, drank lots, almost at the same bottle count....to the bottle! Doh!

After taking delivery of these boxes, I can firmly declare that I have enough champagne to last me until the end times. Or at least until the tariff nonsense is sorted

Glad to hear that large formats counts as one, since 14 of mine were magnums this month!

Well done, Alan.

ok, in January I purchased 35 bottles - but 6 (375s) were a birthday present for a friend and 20 were vintage 2018 for my grand niece's cellar (hope she likes German riesling and Huet 1ere Tries) - only 6 (all 2001 Selbach) were for me!

I consumed 15 bottles - that includes the six half bottles for my friend, some 2001 german wine I acquired at auction on behalf of a friend and forgot to remove from inventory when he retrieved them, a bottle given to my housekeeper, and six donated to a charitable event.

Drank nothing from my cellar (or any one else's cellar) in January.

2019 was the lowest # of purchased bottles and by far the lowest gain since 2009...so progress...but still 444/256=188 gained. Ugh.

I resolved to do much better in 2020 as I am nearing retirement.

2020 goals: < 100 bottles purchased, net negative.

January: -2
13 bottles purchased - Prevost, Vatan, Mugneret-Gibourg
15 consumed.

February: ...
12 bottles purchased - Clos Rougeard, Lafarge

Let's see; Dry January; BD11, and a couple of wine sales. Not a good combination. On the forecast is the Spring wine sales . Currently there is about 4 open slots in all of my wine racking. I'm so screwed.

Purchased 18 bottles YTD
Consumed 25 bottles YTD

My purchases compared to my peak buying years of 2016 & 2017 are down nicely:

2018 - down 25%
2019 - down 45%

This year will be the game changer thanks to retirement. It is a bit sad since chasing and buying wine has been a big part of my life for the past 25 years, but reality is what it is and I have plenty of great wine to drink for a long time. Life is good.

I was at 1137 when this thread started and my goal was to get to 1K by the end of 2018. Sitting at 1234 today. But — I retired in December and the wine buying budget has dried up. I also solved my cellar capacity problem. Last week I noticed how chilly the large closet in our basement guest room is. It never gets warm in there and stays in the 60s in the summer. A few Vintage View racks on the wall gave me room for 216 bottles on the closet wall.

Bought 3, consumed (probably more accurate to say “got rid of”) 21!

Shit just went back to page one to see where I started. Up 16! But 253 bottles are either vintage 2014 or 2018 and thus count as birth year wines for my niece and nephew - and thus don’t count here, right?

I have basically just been buying daily drinker reds white and rosé for family. It's working and they are sucking the cellar dry. I keep the better ones squirrelled away and only pull one when asked, so down about a hundred from last year, 38 white and rosé from I Suck at CT. [wow.gif]

It's fine for staying in ketosis - any dry wine can be okay so long as you fit the carbs into your limit for the day - but staying in ketosis isn't the goal in and of itself. The point of being in ketosis, at least for most of us, is to maximize fat oxidation. When you have alcohol in your system, regardless of carbs, fat burning stops. If you've devoted all this time and effort to maximizing fat oxidation, most of us prefer not to shut off the burn for hours at a time.

when I do my Atkins diet version, any alcohol shuts off weight loss for 2-3 days regardless of carb count. Just not worth it.

As of March 8th.
Down 4.9% on the year.
Goal is down 6% on the year, so well on the way.
This will be down approximately 40% over 7 years.
Still too much...

Same thing. My only way to lose weight is to take alcohol to zero. I did that from 1/1 to 2/18, only drank on 6 of those days and half of those days were 2 bourbon days (fewer carbs). Lost about 12 lbs over the period.

No change this month for us:

Purchased: 36
Consumed: 36
Net: 0

Of the purchases, only 10 were my doing!

The lion's share of consumption happened at the beginning of the month when we had our last weekend of friends coming over.

it’s cellar inventory—so no weaseling out when Jonathan pulls the trigger. I often hand my wife the credit card when we make a purchase so I can remind her she bought it. Stay well. Zero bought for me but very few consumed since I’m on call part of this month and now.
