Wine Lists

From the main screen, pressing the title bar lets you select a wine list to view.  The first four represent the category each wine belongs to, while the others are shortcuts to view filtered versions of your wines.

The Wine List containing the wines in your collection
The Order List containing wines you’ve ordered but haven’t received.  This could include futures or wines simply awaiting delivery.
Your Wish List. Where to store information about wines you’ve tried and would like to purchase.
Wines that were once in your inventory but no longer have any bottles.
Wines you flagged (bookmarked).
Wines that are in or past their drinking window. Useful when selecting a wine to sample.
Strictly wines that are past their drinking window. Useful for finding wines you should open shortly.
Wines or orders with triggered alerts. Place an alert on a wine that you either want to drink soon or on a particular date.  For example, if you are saving a bottle for a special occasion, setup an alert to remind you when that time arrives. Also, use this to remind you when to check on futures you ordered.
Shows everything in the WineTracker database including empty inventory.

If you define drinking windows for your wines or setup alerts you may see the following icons displayed next to your wines:

The wine is not yet ready
The wine is past its drinking window
Indicates an alert has passed for this wine.

The buttons along the button provide options to interact with the lists. When you select “Pick A Wine”, WineTracker will randomly select one of the wines from the current list.  If you want to pick a particular style or type of wine, use “Filter” first to filter your list, then use “Pick A Wine”.

Display the Regions database.  Each wine is associated with a country / region / subregion /varietal / type five-tuple. This makes it easier to associate wines with region and rating information.  You can add new combinations by pressing the button at the bottom left of the Regions database screen.
Create a filter for this list. You can filter pretty much any or all fields as well as clear the filter using the erase brush at the bottom. Each list can be separately filtered.
Sort the contents of this list. The selected sort option may change what wine information is displayed in the list. Each list can be independently sorted.
Randomly selects a wine from this list. If you’re in the mood for an Italian wine, first set a filter, then select this option to randomly pick a wine from the filtered list to make your selection for this evening. If your mobile device supports it, shaking the phone accomplishes the same thing.
Scan a barcode. If a matching wine is found, it is displayed.  If several matching wines are found, a list is displayed. If no matching wines are found, you can fill in the details to add a new wine.
Add a wine to this list.
View various top 10 lists comprised of wines in your database. This is a quick way to see the most expensive, oldest, or highly rated wines.
Summarize the wines from this list. You can see the wines summarized by wine type, country, vintage or cost.  This is a great way to get a sense of how your inventory is distributed, if you’re light on certain regions or vintages, and total value. Selecting partial results often displays a new list showing just that subset of wines.
Delete all the wines from this list (also accounting for any filters you defined). There is no “undo” operation, so be careful.
Display a log file of interactions you have had with WineTracker displaying additions, deletions, edits, etc. Selecting items that refer to individual wines often displays the wine itself (unless it was deleted). This is useful to quickly recall what you last opened or added.
Another way to select which list to view. See above.
Displays cloud settings and provides tools for importing or exporting the database as well as completely erasing all trace of it.
Displays application settings.
In the free version of the app, this brings you to the app store to view the information for the paid version of the application.
