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

Learn to taste wine like a pro. Bianca Bosker shares her wit, wisdom and experiences navigating the world of wine. Bosker caught the wine bug while working as a reporter and executive tech editor for The Huffington Post. Trading her reporter’s pen for a spittoon, she embarked on a vinous quest to understand what drives wine obsessives. Going from neophyte to connoisseur over the course of a year, Bosker’s deep dive into the wine world featured tastings with top sommeliers, visits to winemakers in Napa and Sonoma, and intensive training for the Court of Master Sommeliers’ Certified Sommelier Examination. Along the way, there were adventures (and misadventures) in restaurant wine cellars and a visit to New York City’s annual homage to Burgundy, the La Paulée Festival.
