Here’s a close-up showing the stores and how many bottles in each:

You can print this list, e-mail it to yourself and as of Monday, access via my free mobile wine apps for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry and other smartphones … and yes, we will be adding this service for all provinces soon so join us and find out when we do.

Wow, back from shopping so soon? You were thirsty! Okay, now if you like, you can record your wines into your virtual cellar log by clicking on the name of the wine, for example, the Yalumba shiraz, on your Shopping list, then on “Add to Cellar” to instantly add it to your virtual cellar. You can also scan  the bottle bar code using the apps.

Next time you’re ready to shop, click on “Remove All” on the top right of your shopping list, then start adding new wines. Hope you find this a fun, fast and delicious way to find the wines you love!

Cheers,

Natalie
