Product Description

About the Author

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, his Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered.

With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past four decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, co-authored with Jancis Robinson, his Wine Companion, first published in 2003, and The Story of Wine. In his spare time he writes about gardening from his home in London.

Format: Hardcover
It should be made clear that of the 208 pages in this hardback book, only 21 contain information - spaced liberally around large illustrations with vast borders. The rest is taken up mainly by identical serving record forms to fill in...Do not buy this book to learn about storing wine - it really is just a record keeping book.

This cellar book has some useful categories, including sections on wine by the case, individual bottles and also logging sections for wine drunk on special occasions. It is definitely a novices cellar book, however does provide useful tips on storage, labelling and temperatures.

Some reviewers have expressed dissapointment in this book and I guess if you expect to learn lots about wine and storing it you could feel short changed. But that's not what its for. It's a record book in which you write down the wine you buy and make notes on each bottle you drink, the food and occasion. If that is what you want to do - this cellar book is perfect for the job.

HASH(0x9bb0c114) out of 5 stars The Best Cellar Book 25 July 2000
By Michael Barwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are serious about recording (and drinking) your wine collection this book by Hugh Johnson is a must. It contains details on cellaring techniques, bottle and glass shapes as well as a history of cellaring. Most importantly it contains information on how to structure your cellar i.e. where to put your bottles.
First and foremost this book is for recording your wines - their location in the cellar, where you purchased them, cost price, quantity, tasted date and most importantly, what they tasted like. It contains a mass of pages for recording your case lots, as well as a large section for recording individual bottles as they pass through your cellar.
Resist the temptation to get software to manage your cellar, get this book and enjoy the relaxed pleasure of maintaining your catalogue with the old fashioned medium of pen and paper, and a suitably filled glass in the other hand.

I love this book - after filling up 3 of them, I realized they were out of print - found some more and bought them, even a couple of them in French - I have a nice lifetime supply. Best Book of this type ever! Buy one - try it - you will be hooked.
