Some of us know wine really well and insist on the best in our bottles... and some of us are content to drink it out of boxes. 

Bianca Bosker started in the latter category, and moved to the former.  Her intense interest in wine and the people who serve it led her to quit her job in journalism and go full-bore into wine. 

The result is the book Cork Dork: A Wine-fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste.  And live she does... Bianca Bosker visits to tell tales of her oenophile odyssey.
