Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

When first getting started with VinWorks, it's recommended to create at least one batch and vessel. Once you have both of these in place, the rest of the app's functionality comes together.

Why am I not seeing the vessels section on my screen?

I just signed up with Facebook. Can I make the cellar name different than my email?

Yes! Click the symbol in the top left corner of the app and go to "Settings". There you are able to change your username.

Does VinWorks work on iPad or phones?

Yes! VinWorks is fully mobile responsive and should work on all platforms.

Can I adjust fill capacity of a vessel?

Yes, once you have transferred wine into a vessel you are able to click "Edit" on the individual vessel to change the filled volume. When transferring wine into an empty vessel, the default filled volume will be that of the vessel's capacity.

How does transferring work?

In the video above, you're shown how to transfer wine into an empty vessel. If desired, you can also transfer wine into a vessel that already contains wine, as in the blending example below.

How can I create a blend?

The above example recommends creating an individual blend batch for transferring two other batches into. Once you have at least two batches created, you are able to access the blend selection under "Transfer / Racking".

Can I assign a vessel to a batch without doing a transfer?

Yes, each vessel has an "Edit" button that can be used to change the batch it contains. Contrary to transferring within the batch view, this does not create a history record.

I made a mistake, can I delete a step?

Yes! All log history steps as well as vessel history has a "remove" button.

Oops! I accidentally deleted some data and I want to get it back. Do you have a way to recover it?

Your data is backed up on a weekly basis, so there is a chance it exists on a backup. Please contact support@vinworks.org to see if a restore is possible.

Can I edit log history?

Yes! You are able to now edit the date, time, and text fields for log history. This will update any relevant vessel's history as well.

How do I view data charts?

You'll need to enter numerical data under "Preharvest Analysis", "Fermentation", or "Labwork".

Can I print logs?

Yes! On larger screen sizes you'll find the icon in the top right corner of the screen. Click this to print your log.

Can I download logs to an Excel file?

Yes! On larger screen sizes you'll find the icon in the top right corner of the screen. Click this to download your batch's log data to a CSV format. To download all of your account's data including batch history and vessel history, visit the "Settings" page and select "Download Data"

I bottled. How do I reflect this in the cellar?

Each batch has an "Edit" button in the cellar with an option to mark as bottled. This changes the spinning cog to a bottle image.

Can I reorder batches?

Yes, each batch can be dragged up or down the list for organization. Click to hold and drag the symbol.

I'm on the batch page. Where are my vessels?

The only vessels in view on an individual batch page are the ones that contain this particular batch.

How do I empty a vessel?

Vessels are emptied using the "Transfer / Racking" area in a log or by clicking "Edit" on a particular vessel to change the batch that's contained as "Empty".
