Bianca Bosker & Madeline Puckette in conversation

Saturday, April 1, 2017 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm
Seward Park

Join us for an evening of wine & conversation with authors Bianca Bosker & Madelin Puckette.


Amateur drinker and professional tech reporter Bianca Bosker didn't know much about wine--until she stumbled on an alternate universe where taste reigned supreme, a world of master sommeliers who could, after a single sip, identify the grape a bottle was made from, in what year, and where it was produced, within acres. Where she tasted "wine," they detected not only complex flavor profiles, but entire histories and geographies. Astounded by their fanatical dedication and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, Bosker abandoned her screen-centric life and set out to discover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a "cork dork."


Joining Bianca in conversation is fellow 'cork dork' and Master Sommelier Madeline Puckette, author of Wine Folly : The Essential Guide to Wine.
