I’m a big fan of the blog Lifehacker that gives tips on “hacking” everyday items (OK, sometimes they also hack tech). This got me thinking how “hacks”, ingenious solutions to everyday problems, could extend to the wine world. A quick search of Lifehacker turned up just one example of a wine hack: having a vintage chart in your wallet. Hmm, nice tip, but not in the same league as the hack I blogged about last week from Slashfood. Google searches also turned up very little except the term “hacks” being used as slang for writer.
So I am on the look out for any wine hacks you find and have setup a new category to make them easy to find here… just post to comments or pop me an email. I’ve also got a few hacks in mind to blog from time to time.

I came across your post when also googling for “hacking” and the wine world, more specifically in relation to the brilliant CellarTracker. The only one I currently have is the automatic inclusion of my cellar into my WordPress blog (http://www.gregnbaker.com/blog/winecellar/) using a plugin called WinEx.
