Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure at Harvard Bookstore

July 18, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you pride yourself in being an armchair wine-critic?  Join BIANCA BOSKER, former executive tech editor of The Huffington Post, at Harvard Bookstore for a look at her new book- Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste.

With boundless curiosity, humor, 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 even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine?

This event is free and open to the public
