Cork Dork
Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste | Bianca Bosker
116 posts | 55 read | 5 reading | 136 to read
A marvelous journey through the mad, manic, seductive subculture of wine and wine lovers. Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief The Kitchen Confidential of wine: Read this book, and youll never be intimidated by wineor wine snobsagain. Madeline Puckette, co-author of Wine Folly Like many of us, amateur drinker and professional tech reporter Bianca Bosker saw wine as a way to unwind at the end of a long day, or a nice thing to have with dinnerand that was about it. Until she stumbled on an alternate universe where taste reigned supreme, a world in which people could, after a single sip, identify the grape a bottle was made from, in what year, and where it was producedwithin acres. Where she tasted wine, these master sommeliers detected not only complex flavor profiles, but entire histories and geographies. Astounded by their fanatical dedication and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, Bosker abandoned her screen-centric life and set out to discover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a cork dork. Thus begins a year and a half long adventure that takes the reader inside elite tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, a California mass market wine "factory," and even a neuroscientists fMRI machine as Bosker attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: whats the big deal about wine? Counterintuitive, compulsively readable, and hilarious, Cork Dork illuminates how tasting better can help us live betterand will change the way you drink wine forever. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This week's episode of Unabridged was a funny one for me. "We should record an episode about cookbooks," they said. "It will be fine that you don't cook," they said.

Well, I think I made it work, but see what YOU think, and let us know! ?

Really enjoyed listening to and then reading this book. Not as wine snobby as you might think- in fact at the end of her journey to be a certified sommelier Bianca writes “Feeling something for wine and unleashing your senses begins by just paying attention. And applying yourself with gusto.” I learned alot and enjoyed myself along the way- like Mary Roach for wine tasting🍷👍

I loved this hella fun & informative deep dive into wine culture as well as research into the senses of taste & smell. Bosker is my kind of nerd. Her writing is funny & accessible, & her narration is wonderful. I don't even drink wine, & I found Cork Dork endlessly fascinating.

My first finished book of #25infive. Now I have to go find a new audiobook, preferably nonfiction as fantastically written & narrated as this memoir.
