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.
