So hey, I've heard of this before, always wanted to do it, so now I'm thinking with our new wine club, it's a good time to start.

Has anyone else done one? have any tips? suggestions?

Specifically, I was thinking of saving each wine label, pasting it in a page, then basically, list all of the info along with my tasting notes (just like in our virtual tasting room) and whether I liked it or not. I should have done this a long time ago. Jim has one sort of, but his is for winemaking. (top secret recipes and formulas in there ya know Rolling Eyes)

That sounds like a fun hobby....kinda like a wine scrapbook. You can even take pictures of an event that shows the people drinking it (say...birthday party or holiday)

That's a great suggestion Mrs.Mixon!

Each person could have their own "space" (topic) just for their notebook. I also agree with the "no discussion" (I know sometimes stuff gets lost in the shuffle as some of us get a little chatty). Personally, I would love to see other's notes as well.

Nice, I really like this idea, thanks so much! I'm so glad you mentioned this now because I can take pics of the labels that I'm saving at home.

DD - there are wine journals that you can buy (I plan on getting one for Steve as one of his Christmas gifts) and there are some spaces for questions and a page to paste the label. There are different ones, this is a nice leather one. Check it out.

DD,

Are you soaking the wine lables off the bottles, or using one of those "Lable savers" sold in some wine stores.

The lael savers are clear thin plastic with glue on one side. Supposedly, you paste them onto the lable, then peel off and it brings up a thin part of the lable, sealed forever on the plastic. Just curiouse, cuz I want to know how the lable savers work, never tried em myself. Very Happy

That's a good question Joe. I didn't even think of that.
