I was so excited when Joe came to me asking organizing advice. Then I found out what he needed help with. Wine. Yes, I love to drink wine, but I have NO idea how to organize it. By year, type, vineyard, color?? As the wine connoisseur in our family (not that there was much competition), fortunately Joe figured out how to sort the wine in the wine racks. But then he came asking for wine tags, essentially labels for each wine bottle. THAT I can do. I was born to make labels. And these are pretty easy. Here’s how:
- Thick white cardstock
- Scissors or paper cutter (my personal fav)
- Rounded edge cutter (optional)
- 1 1/2 inch hole punch (optional)
- Colored markers
- Printable Label
- Lots of wine!
Once your tags are made (easy right?), you’ll need to label them. There’s the Lindsay Method and the Joe method.
Top of tag = price
Bottom of tag = type of wine
Pen color = type of wine (red for reds, orange and yellows for whites, pinks for rose, silver for champagnes)
Alright, for those of you with a little bit more sophisticated in your wine collection skills, here’s Joe’s version of labeling:
Top of tag = year (This could either be the year it was made OR the year you want to drink it. Just decide which method you’ll use and stay consistent with all bottles)
Bottom of tag = Vineyard & Type
Pen color = Any 🙂
Are you a Lindsay style or Joe style wine labeler?
