From Publishers Weekly
Loaded with expert information, this volume is as accessible to novice wine collectors with a few bottles to store as it is educational for serious oenophiles seeking to house an extensive array of vintages. But unlike many wine tomes, it doesn't take itself too seriously-Cox (From Vines to Wines) admits early on to a "soft spot in my heart for white Zinfandel." The book is divided into two sections; the first addresses the general principles of collecting and acquiring wine, while the second goes into great detail about building and using a wine cellar. Sidebars address such topics as guidelines for wine aging, vertical tastings, cooling a cellar, storing wine on its side and "the future of corks." Whimsical illustrations throughout by William Bramhall are a constant reminder that collecting wine should be an enjoyable activity.
