The Wine Atelier Podcast #15: Eric LeVine, Inventor of CellarTracker
March 6, 2019 / Stephanie Miskew / 0 Comments
Whether you’ve got hundreds of bottles in your custom wine cellar or some gems stashed in a cabinet under the stairs with plans to add more, you won’t want to miss this episode of The Wine Atelier Podcast featuring my interview with Eric LeVine (pronounced like the grape vine!), inventor of CellarTracker.
We’ve been using this powerful cellar management tool here at Chez Miskew since 2011, and, after researching other options over the years, CellarTracker is, hands down, the BEST and most reliable way to keep track of your wines.
CellarTracker began as a hobby for LeVine when he was working as a programmer for Microsoft. Like me, he caught the wine bug during a trip to one of Italy’s most popular wine regions and quickly discovered he needed a way to document and manage his growing wine collection.
After sharing his idea with fellow oenophiles, it quickly gained steam and proved to be MUCH more than just a hobby. He debuted the CellarTracker website in 2004 and it has been his full-time pursuit pretty much ever since.
In this episode, LeVine elaborates on how Cellartracker has evolved since the early days and how he has stayed true to his original vision. And I’m here to tell you, fifteeen years later, he’s still as passionate as EVER about it! And you won’t want to miss his future plans for CellarTracker and what he has planned for the big fifteenth anniversary coming up next month.
And did I mention, the yearly membership fee for CellarTracker is optional?

As a Certified Sommelier, her real world advice on tasting wine like a pro, discovering which wines you truly love, picking the perfect bottle for any occasion and creating magical food and wine pairings will have you looking like a wine expert in any situation.
While our everyday wines are the vinous equivalent of a cozy blanket or comfy pair of slippers we slip into at the end of the day, at the other end of the spectrum are wines that are more akin to haute couture – think Chanel, Gucci or Dior. These “haute” wines are so meticulously-made, terroir-driven and exquisite, they imprint themselves… Read More
Key to learning about wine, sweet wines in particular, is a little term called Residual Sugar which is our Wine Word of the Week. While there are many factors that ultimately determine the perception of sweetness in wine, residual sugar is the actual amount of sugar left in a wine after the alcoholic fermentation – which can end in a… Read More
Audrey Hepburn’s legendary tiara in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Julia Roberts’ dazzling diamond and ruby necklace in Pretty Woman. Marilyn Monroe’s sexy signature Max Factor Ruby Red lipstick in Some Like it Hot. The perfect accessory can truly take a look from “meh” to “MARVELOUS,” and the same can be said for food as well. You see, crispy prosciutto IS the… Read More
Ahhhh the bounty of late Summer! When I see all the beautiful produce at the Farmer’s Market, it REEEALLY makes me want to do this. The ripe, multicolored heirloom tomatoes seem to long for a drizzle of grassy green olive oil and generous sprinkle of crunchy Maldon sea salt, while the fragrant, downy peaches are begging to be bitten into,… Read More
If you’re anything like me, the word “clone” immediately conjures a host of 1970’s B-movies featuring body-copying aliens who seek to wreak havoc on the human race. When it comes to grapes, however, that source of many 70’s childhood nightmares couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, a GRAPE clone is actually a very good thing! While most plants… Read More
There aren’t many wines that can boast the popularity of rosé in recent years. Much like the Duchess of Sussex, this imminently appealing wine seemed to come out of nowhere and take the world by storm. Years later, we STILL can’t seem to get enough, and our desire shows no signs of waning anytime soon. But the truth is, rosé… Read More
