MANUAL TECH SHEET CREATION
STEP 1 - Creating a New Wine or Spirit
To add a new wine or spirit to your profile, head to the wines sections and select "CREATE ITEM".
The "White label" option allows you to create new items and manage the information without having them visibly linked to your profile. For example, if you decide to create a private label for a store, you can create and handle all the information from your profile, however, users will not be directed to your profile page when viewing this product.
STEP 2 - Adding basic information
1. Select the profile or brand to which you wish to attach the new item or add it as a "White label" item (not linked to any profile)
2. Add pictures of your bottle and label.
NOTE: the image recognition system used by Vinifyed will work well with high-resolution images and both bottle and label pictures so make sure to add high-resolution images and preferably with a blank or no background.
3. Add the wine type ( red / white / rosé / sparkling / dessert / spirit).
4. Add a Sub Type (optional).
Vinifyed will automatically assign a Sub Type to your wines if you do not fill it yourself.
5. Add a vintage (optional).
6. Add a location or appellation (start typing and options should become available to you).
If you cannot find the precise location you need, add the second closest and send us a quick email to make sure we add your location to the list. Contact us here.
