Thanks so much for this post. I'm looking forward to the rest! I must admit that I haven't had the time to figure out what Cork'd offered that Cellar Tracker (my preferred cellar management program) didn't, but now it's clearly laid out. Don't think I'll be switching my CellarTracker notes to the Cork'd journal, but that refer wine to a friend feature will really make this popular, especially among the Vayniacs!

i agree debs. the social part of the site is what differentiates it from cellar tracker. if you could develop a list of friends that have similar tastes and are constantly trying new wines, you could be exposed to new and interesting wines. and that is in large part, the point of cork'd. this is a wild guess, but i have a feeling that gary is going to try to build a program where you could transfer your wines and tasting notes from cellartracker to corkd. that would solve a huge problem for many people.

I'd still probably stack with CellarTracker, I must say, because I feel I've developed a de facto group of people whose palates I trust and respect and you can check out their other reviews simply by clicking on their name. It's not up-front social with friends and buddies and so forth, but that functionality is there for those that want it. But I'll be looking forward to seeing how the Cork'd site changes with the new owner. Thanks again, Ryan.

Great article Ryan, Cork'd and Cellartracker both seem to have their strengths. It will be interesting to see where Gary takes Cork'd in the future. His appearance on Conan the other night was hilarious!

it was really funny. i'm glad he did so well, it must have been intimidating go on a show with conan. but he seemed to put gary at ease with his funny faces and jokes. i'm going to review cellar tracker soon. it seems that the two are catering to different audiences. but only time will tell.
