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.
