&#x 201c; Delighting … [told] with gonzo é&#xe 9; lan … When the sommelier and blog writer Madeline Puckette composes that this book is the &#xa 0; Cooking Area Confidential &#xa 0; of the white wine world, she &#x 2019; s not incorrect, &#xa 0; though Expense Buford &#x 2019; s Heat is most likely a shade more detailed. &#x 201d; &#xa 0; &#x 2014; Jennifer Senior Citizen,(* )The New York City Times &#xa 0;
Expert reporter and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn &#x 2019; t understand much about white wine &#x 2014; till she found an alternate universe where taste rules supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who commit their lives to the pursuit of taste. Surprised by their &#xa 0; eagerness and relatively superhuman sensory powers, she set out to discover what drove their fixation, and whether she, too, might end up being a &#x 201c; cork dork. &#x 201d;
With limitless interest, humor, and a healthy dosage of hesitation, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, unique New york city City dining establishments, California mass-market white wine factories, and even a neuroscientist &#x 2019; s fMRI device as she tries to address the most bothersome concern of all: what &#x 2019; s the huge offer about white wine? What she finds out will alter the method you consume white wine &#x 2014; and, maybe, the method you live &#x 2014; permanently.
