It's quite easy to work out how many bottles you get through in a year - it's also quite easy to estimate the average "cellaring life" of your collection and hence not just where you need to bring balance in, but also work out an "ideal" cellar size. It seems most wine fanatics ideal cellar size is infinite though!
We have just over 200 bottles (actually a little less due to some of these being halves), which may rise just short of 250 if we got lucky/unlucky at a recent auction. At a current rate of between a bottle and three bottles a week (averaging maybe a bottle and a half), this gives us c. 3-4 years drinking without buying any more (like that's going to happen ).
