WINE AUCTION TIPS

If you're a wine collector, "The Wine Lover's Guide to Auctions: The Art & Science of Buying and Selling Wines," by Ursula Hermacinski (Square One Publishers; $17.95) might be worth a quick read. Designed to assist buyers and sellers, the author and auctioneer, a St. Helena resident, shares a glimpse of an insider's view of the wine-auction world, along with information on how to maximize potential for success and how to interpret a wine auction catalog. She aims to remove the mystery of such auctions by explaining how they work. In the resources section, you'll find a list of auction houses along with periodicals, Web sites, online wine auctions and more.
