Editorial Reviews

Review

The book just begs you to open it.
--Steve Bachmann, Vinfolio.com

"A gorgeous photographic trip to the cellars of our dreams"
--Eric Asimov, The New York Times

"Bottom Line: Every wine collector would love to have this book."
--Steve Bachmann, CEO Vinfolio

"From Napa Valley to Massachusetts, they’ve cultivated a mix of some
of the most dynamic uses of space (an under-the-staircase wine
cellar?) and the most incredible wine collections (20,000 bottles
owned by one person?)."
--Wall Street Journal Magazine

"Highly recommended for all wine aficionados!"
--Vicente Wolf Blog

For wine aficionados, this is the ultimate guide to create fabulous wine rooms that can rival the best of high end wine stores. To me, it will be a good guide for showing clients the possibilities of how to approach a wine room with commercial and residential applications. Definitely one for the wine connoisseur.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Rusty Gaffney MD on January 5, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book offers the wine lover a voyeuristic peek into thirty of the most extravagant and spectacular wine cellars in the United States. One cannot help but marvel at the grandeur of some of these rooms and the impressive wine collections contained therein. The stories behind the passionate wine collectors and their distinctive cellars is told by James Beard Award-winning wine writer, Alice Feiring, in conjunction with noted interior design and architecture writer, Samantha Nestor. The color photography of Andrew French is stunning and amplified by the large size of this volume.

The book is divided into five parts: the Entertaining Pair's Lair, the Gentlemen's Haven, the Sybarite's Sanctuary, the Modernist Refuge, and Urban Retreats and Inspiring Spaces. The size of most of these cellars indicates the zeal with which wine connoisseurs will pursue their collection. While most of the featured cellars royally display 2,000 to 3,000 bottles, more than enough wine for most imbibers, one mind-boggling cellar houses 60,000 bottles of fine wine.

Most readers can only dream about having such lavish cellars for their beloved wine collections. The book does not give any estimates of the cost of designing and building these eye-popping wine cellars, but clearly these architectural marvels came at a considerable expense, in some cases exceeding the value of the wines resting inside.

This work is a coffee table book at heart that will please those who delight in marveling at what extremes collectors will go to in displaying their beloved wines. It will be particularly appealing to those who find admiration in the creative designs that the owners and artisans display in these distinctive wine cellars. The volume may even stimulate readers to embark on their own wine cellar project.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The most impressive and awe-inspiring private wine cellars in the country are featured in this gem -- the stories, the photos, and of course the wine are spectacular and makes for a great "coffee table book" or conversation piece. This book will make a perfect addition to any wine collector's library -- whether you are looking for ideas for your own cellar or just like to see "how the other half lives." Perfect for the wine lover or those who simply love luxury and elegance.

I got this for ideas on how to build a classy wine storage and tasting area in my house. It's filled with photos and the photography is first-rate. The locations covered are fairly varied--some modern and most traditional, but they all are great. I may not get around to building one for myself, but I appreciate this book.
