The Most Beautiful Wine Cellars In The World, Revisited (Now With Drool-Inducing Pics!)

Vinted on May 4, 2010 binned in book reviews

After my review last week of the newly-released book by Astrid Fobelets, Jurgen Lijcops, The Most Beautiful Wine Cellars In The World, I received requests (one in the comments, and a few more via email) for some pictures from that haughty tome.  After all, if you’re gonna drop upwards of $60 on a coffee table book, you want to know a bit about what you’re in for (well, a bit more than me telling you that it’s very pretty, anyway).

I’m happy to report that I received permission from the publisher, VdH Books, to share a few images with you, which I’ve watermarked and reduced in size from the hi-res to reduce the temptation of stealing them (not that any of you would do that, mind you, we’re just protecting the world from those thugs who might come and snatch them up after a Google image search…).

Anyway, five shots are included below, which are (in order of appearance): Château Neercanne (Netherlands), Radisson SAS Wine Tower (London),  Palais Coburg (Vienna), Weingut Brundlmayer (Austria) and the imposing Marques de Riscal (Spain).

Enjoy…

Envy or jealousy do not accurately describe G.A.S.; they have far too negative connotations, and G.A.S. isn’t negative – if anything, you’re happy for your friend who has picked up that awesome new instrument – it’s more like a form of addiction that plagues those who find themselves simultaneously straddling the roles of collector and experiencer.

Which is, of course, a scenario which wine lovers can easily appreciate, especially when visiting one of those enormous, kick-ass wine cellars full of potentially-amazing juice.

Which is why you probably shouldn’t even so much as look at the upcoming book The Most Beautiful Wine Cellars In The World by Astrid Fobelets, Jurgen Lijcops (about $60 from VdH Books, available in May 2010 – I received a preview copy).  It will very likely give you a serious case of wine G.A.S. …
