The Most Beautiful Wine Cellars in the World

winecellarsFor the wine devotee, The Most Beautiful Wine Cellars in the World (VdH Books, 2010) is an expansive volume that tours nearly 60 wine cellars in Europe, North America, Lebanon, and China, led by chef and sommelier Jurgen Lijcops. Richly textured, full-page photography gives a rare sense of having entered these hallowed caverns of the wine world, each filled with heirloom bottles and private collections. Highlights include the ancient Rákóczi Cellar in the Hungarian region of Tokaj, dating to the 15th century, as well as the subterranean complex of six cellars spread over 7200 square feet owned by Park B. Smith, a Connecticut collector.

Available from Amazon, starting at $68.
