Inhaltsangabe

Instant New York Times best-seller and a New York Times critics' pick.

“Thrilling...[told] with gonzo élan.... When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the Kitchen Confidential of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s Heat is probably a shade closer.” (Jennifer Senior, The New York Times)

Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine - until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, 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 uncover what drove their obsession and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork”. 

With boundless curiosity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the listener inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: What’s the big deal about wine? 

What she learns will change the way you drink wine - and, perhaps, the way you live - forever.

“Think: Eat, Pray, Love meets Somm.” (TheSkimm)

“As informative as it is, well, intoxicating.” (Fortune)

Kritikerstimmen

"The Kitchen Confidential of wine." (Madeline Puckette, Wine Folly)
"Bianca Bosker is an enthusiast. Her passion for wine expertise makes this fun and fact-filled audiobook an extraordinary listening experience. She narrates her text with joy, and her pursuit of the special knowledge and wisdom possessed by sommeliers comes through in every syllable of her journey from oenology novice to working cork dork.... She narrates her audiobook with verve and self-deprecating humor." ( AudioFile)
