Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker

Cork Dork promises to take us on a wine-fueled adventure taking in obsessive sommeliers, big bottle hunters and rogue scientists. Written by tech journalist Bianca Bosker, who knew little about wine until she plunged head first into it.

Astounded by sommeliers’ seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she too could become a cork dork.

With curiosity, humour, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and a neuroscientist’s MRI machine as she attempts to find out why wine makes so many people doolally with passion.

Cork Dork doesn’t just examine what’s in the glass; it explores the idea of looking at the world in a new way through the prism of wine.
