Searching your Records

Searching for wines in The Personal Wine Curator is easy.

Click on the "Search" button in the black Navigation Bar and select either "Search by field" (if you know exactly what you’re looking for and what field to find it in) or "Universal search" (if you have a keyword, but can’t remember exactly where it might be in your wine record).

Type any word or phrase in the spaces provided, then click the "Search My Lists" button.

The "More" button brings up another set of fields in which you can enter new criteria and multiply your search (My Lists only).

Search for wines in The Personal Wine Curator Community ("PWCC") by using any of the red highlighted fields on the "Search by field" page, then click the "Search PWCC" button.

"Universal Search" looks for wines in your PWC lists and is not for use with the PWC Community. You can be very specific about how you enter information in the "Universal search" field. Below you will find a list of useful tips for refining your searches.
