Book Description

Oct. 6 2004
Finally, the most informative, fully illustrated, step-by-step guide to designing and building your own home wine cellar! This beautifully photographed and illustrated full-color book covers all of the details of locating and preparing the right construction area. It includes the latest designs, as well as up-to-date racking and organization styles and techniques. Perhaps most important, this book addresses all the thorny challenges of temperature and humidity control—just where most home wine cellars fail. Having a wine cellar is a hot trend among homeowners, and contractors throughout the country are including them in new construction. This copiously illustrated “hammer and nails” book is by far the best DIY guide available.

Product Details

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

"Every bottle of wine—regardless of its vintage or variety—deserves proper storage and care," says Sims, a California carpenter specializing in wine cellar construction. This unique book promises to explain how to make that proper care happen, in seven illustrated chapters covering everything from wine racking solutions and the fundamentals of wine storage to planning and building a wine cellar and opening, straining and serving old bottles. There’s something here for every wine lover, whether he or she is interested in using a self-contained storage unit (built-in or stand-alone) or intent on constructing a walk-in, below-grade wine cellar. Detailed sketches portray the components of a subterranean basement foundation, the steps involved in installing French drains, and other aspects of construction; photographs show finished cellars. Although this is chiefly a book for DIY-ers, casual wine enthusiasts may also enjoy perusing its pages.
