Just a follow up on my virtual wine cellars post from the other day.  A friend of mine sent me a link to Cork’d. It’s yet another new virtual wine cellar. Obviously there is a niche market available. I really liked Cork’d – it’s probably my favorite thus far. I like it because of its innovative use of tagging. Tagging, as everyone who uses Technorati knows, is a great way to tie similar things together in streams. Take that concept and apply it to wine. It works.

While Cork’d has a great interface (clean and Web 2.0-ish), a fun attitude, and a budding community, it does not have the ability to create or import reports. Why is this lacking from so many of these virtual cellars? Do they not realize that a lot of us have been tracking our wine electronically for a while and don’t really want to re-type all of that information?

Attention all virtual cellar folks! Do you want reports and the ability to import or export? Fine. Let me know. My husband is one of those super-intelligent programmer guys and he thinks, using SOAP, he can probably build the reporting ability for one of you. I imagine you can pay us in wine or something. We’ll work it out. That’s how important this function is to me. Let’s get it done!

    you should check out winefetch (http://www.winefetch.com). They have really NICE reports for cellar management and are free. The great thing is they also have tasting notes, a wine search engine, and wine alerts – my personal favorite.
