Working with bottle tags/labels

The system is supporting all of the following bottle tag and label formats. How tags are assigned to bottles is explained in How to - Work with bottle tags and How to - Assign bottle tags.

vinochetta

“vinochetta” are bottle tags provided on sheets (close to A5 size) each with 6 tags.

Following are some of the benefits provided by the “vinochetta” tags.

  • facilitate the management of your wine cellar
  • identify wines at a glance
  • easily track the bottles you take out of your cellar
  • design fits all standard bottle sizes

They have been tested on different inkjet printers from Canon and Epson, however we expect them to work with just about any “more or less” modern printer. Should there be a problem using the tags with your printer we will do our best to resolve the issue or if this is not possible we would reimburse you.

Please check our web site for ordering Information.

Printing of these labels is done via the Print Manager, which is documented in more detail in Reports - Overview, right most button on the toolbar.

Tip

When using the vinochetta tags we recommend that you assign tags to bottles and to rack positions, and only then print the tags. The rack position is printed on the tag where the bottle micro perforation cut out is, which helps you to put the bottles into the correct rack position in your cellar. It is also much quicker and easier to separate the tags using a Stanley knife (cutter) just before you place them into your rack.

Mini labels for tags

These are labels which can be used with the plastic bottle tags available in favourite wine store and instead of writing on them by hand we offer two pre-defined print formats.

Printing of these labels is done via the Print Manager, which is documented in more detail in Reports - Overview, right most button on the toolbar.

Tip

The print dialog and the labels are designed in a way that you do not need to print a full A4 or A5 sheet of labels. The Print Manager allows you to define the first label to print. This allows you to record small purchases when you make them and you do not have to wait until the next purchase before updating your cellar book, and at the same time it keeps the waste of tags to a minimum.

Following shows a sample of the printed output.

Attention

When you start using bottle tags make sure that you select the correct type when creating the tag lots in the menu Master Data - Drinks ‣ Bottle tag lots as it is not possible to change from one type to another after having assigned them to bottles. The only way to change it is to unassign the tags and then assign the correct ones.
