Thus begins a year and a half long adventure that takes the listener inside elite tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, a California mass market wine "factory", and even a neuroscientist's fMRI machine as Bosker attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: What's the big deal about wine? Counterintuitive, compulsively listenable, and hilarious, Cork Dork illuminates how tasting better can help us live better - and will change the way you drink wine forever.

Interesting but not educational
If you are looking to learn about wine, this is not the book for you. If you want to hear the story of a 20 something journalist trying to insert herself into the world of high wine, this book is great!
I found it to be entertaining but I really did not learn very much about wine aside from the general consensus that the best and most expensive stuff comes from Burgundy and that if you don’t want to spend more than a couple dozen dollars per bottle, maybe finely tuning your wine tasting apparatus is not such a good idea.
