Wine list to Excel conversion and standardisation

I need assistance gathering wine list data from restaurant websites (normally in PDF), converting to Excel and formatting into a standardised 2 column list (wine name, colour) for upload into a database.

The challenge: restaurants lists vary in presentation from restaurant to restaurant, meanwhile I need standardised information. Converting each list into the required format requires a significant amount of manual intervention. Each list is different.


There are three principal issues / challenges: Colour – Name - Formatting

Colour (white – rose – red)

Wine lists are normally organised by colour / style – typically: sparkling wine (which are mainly white, but include rose), white wines, red wine, dessert wines (normally white), fortified (mixture of red and white). Lists normally include general headers white wines – red wines, etc, but not always, meanwhile I need a colour attached to every line in the csv output file


I need wine names in a standardised format that the database will recognise.

The complete list of wines in the database can be downloaded for comparison – however, Excel VLOOKUP is not sophisticated enough for matching between the two data sets

Some wines include maker name + wine name + region + vineyard name. Others just include maker name.

E.g. for Bordeaux wines producer name only: Chateau Margaux. For Burgundy producer name + village name + vineyard name

Domaine ABC + Vineyard name + reference for Premier or Grand Cru + Village name

Producer names and wine are often in different cells – sometimes the producer name will be at the top of a sub section and the concatenation therefore needs an absolute reference


Converting accented characters to non-accented

Removing and standardising certain words, phrases and characters

Removing blanks and reducing the list to a standardised three column format

Some of the formatting processes are relatively easy to run through VBA modules (e.g. find and replace / delete)

I need this done quickly and with 100% accuracy.

Payment will be batches at the rate of $100 / 5000 lines of lines of output. Scope: 150 restaurant lists - size varies from list to list.

If you can come up with an automated solution using VBA so much the better
