Invest in a paper bookkeeping system, in addition to the aforementioned computerized option. Organize your wine, either by size, label, rate of maturity, or another random system. Record your organizational methods into a "cellar book.”

Your cellar book should include a diagram of your wine cell with descriptions of each wine and the rack on which it is stored, so you can better keep track of all of your labels and various rates of development.
