How do you organize your wine cellar?

Pip | Feb 21, 2013 09:57 AM

I currently have about 100 bottles of wine in my cellar, and I am looking for some suggestions on how to organize it. Should it be by region? varietal? when to drink? winery?

I'm toying with the idea of keeping the most reachable area for "drink now" wines, then organize the rest by varietal then winery.

For context, I have wine from various regions in California and Washington from about 14 different wineries. And I have zin, cab, petite sirah, syrah, pinot noir, and chardonnay.

Any suggestions on how you organize yours is appreciated! Thanks!
