Getting Started


The Uncorked Cellar is an extremely comprehensive Cellar management program and wine guideinformation. It provides winery details, wine ratings, value guide, winemaker's notes, cellaring guide, etc. and includes many wines from wineries around the world.


Despite its advanced capabilities, basic operations are very simple and easy to use. The most important concepts to understand are how to add a wine, and how to modify a wine.


When you installed The Uncorked Cellar, a sample cellar was created to help you quickly evaluate the program. I suggest you get familiar with the basic concepts and features by using the Sample Cellar, then create a new cellarHowdoICreateanewCellar before you add your own wines.


For help on how do get the best from the more advanced features in The Uncorked Cellar, see How do I...HowdoI

The Sample Cellar


When you started we created a small sample cellar to help you evaluate The Uncorked Cellar. This cellar is exactly the same as one you would create except for three exceptions.


• The Sample Cellar already has some wine in it.

• The Sample Cellar may be overwritten when you install a new version of The Uncorked Cellar.

• The Sample Cellar has random data in the graphs which show what wines you have added or uncorked during the last year.


The purpose of The Sample Cellar is to allow you to quickly evaluate all the features of The Uncorked Cellar

If you have accidentally erased your sample cellar and wish to re-generate it, use the menu command Help, Recreate The Sample Cellar
