Editorial Reviews

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.

More About the Author

For the first eight years of my life, I was a suburban kid in Manhasset, New York. Then we moved to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania where I learned to hunt, fish, eat wild foods, and swim in pristine waters of spring-fed creeks. Then I lived in Manhattan. So I'm at home just about anywhere. My experiences in the country, though, were the most important, leading me through newspaper and magazine work to Organic Gardening magazine, where I developed a love of gardening and landscaping. Now I'm a wine writer for many magazines and the restaurant reviewer for Northern California's newspaper of record, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, here in the heart of the Wine Country. I'm also a contributing editor to The Wine News and Horticulture magazines. I've written 18 books on food, wine, and gardening,--many of which are available on Amazon.

Format: Paperback
This is a beautiful and well written book, unfortunately the title is a bit misleading. It not only discusses selecting, building and managing your wine collection, but also spends a great deal of time [most of the book actually] on such things as the aroma wheel, picking your wines, etc. If you're already an enthusiast looking for a 'how to' book, you might want to look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
The title of this book is a little misleading, the book does cover selecting, building, and managing wine. However, this information only acocunts for about 1/4 of the book. The rest of the book talks about wine in general. The cellaring chapters were very detailed and answered all of my questions. The other 3/4 of the book was interesting and covered your basic intro to wine information. If you want to know more about wine, or are looking for a complete guide on different ways to cellar wine, then this book is for you.

The book I bought was used and copyrighted in 2003. The book provides some good thoughts on creating a wine cellar and selecting wines to stock the cellar with. I am not smart enough on wines to know if the wines he covers are really good or not. I am somewhat familiar with wood working and math. In Chap 4 (pages 99-102) he covers cellar size, he estimates that a couple will consume two 750 ml bottles of wine every three days or 240 bottles every year. These 240 bottles he converts to 12 cases of wine per year. ( my math converts 240 bottles to 20 cases of 12 bottles each). He then estimates having 3 cases of wine to give away as gifts etc per year. He plans his cellar to hold 8 years worth of wine to allow wines to age for the future. On page 102 he comes up with the need to store 103 cases to cover the eight year wine cellar cycle. ( my math 20 plus 3 times 8 years equals 184 cases of storage needed for the 8 year cycle) On page 105 he states you need 580 cubic feet of storage for the 110 cases plus 580 cubic feet to walk around in. (my math computes a case of wine at a little less than 1 cubic foot and for 184 cases that would compute to 184 cubic feet for wine storage plus maybe another 360 cubic feet to move around in). He also computes cubic yards, in his example he says 1,160 cubic feet converts to 129 cubic yards He uses 9 cubic feet to a cubic yard. . ( My math says there are 27 cubic feet to a cubic yard 3 x 3 x 3 (L X W X H) is 27. 1,160 divided by 27 is a little under 43 cubic yards.)
In chap 5 he goes about building a wine cellar and suggests an 8 by 18 foot cellar that is 7 or 8 feet high. On page 133 he says to place studs 16 inches on center but his drawings on pages 132,137 and 138 show the studs at 17 1/2 inches on center.

I have gone through about a half dozen books on wine, tasting, and cellaring lately and this is one of the better ones. Well rounded and thorough, it will leave you with a good understanding of the basics and is written well enough to make it enjoyable and interesting to read. Give it a try and then pop the cork on a new wine to celebrate your new knowledge of this interesting hobby.
