Bianca Bosker, Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste

Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 6:00 PM | Open to the Public | Members' Room | $20 per person | Advance registration required

Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns surpreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to discover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” In this event, Ms. Bosker introduces her book Cork Dork and leads a tasting of three of the specific wines discussed.
