Worried that your beloved Montrachet is coveting the 50-degree embrace of another's cellar? Think one of your own is out of reach? The classic naturally air-conditioned wine-cellar construction guide is now revised and updated for the modern wine collector who wants or needs a wine cellar but lacks the means to fund a massive renovation, or has do-it-yourself-ness in the blood.The book begins with how to plan for optimum humidity and temperature with a discussion on the best positioning (key to a passive system that takes advantage of an existing structure's natural cooling capabilities and keeping temperature fluctuation to a minimum) and insulation.Section two outlines, step-by-step and with detailed diagrams, every level and aspect of construction, including building of racks and storage bins.Section three is all about the art and science of selecting, recording, tracking and enjoying your wines at their peak performance.
