The Cork Dork has received many fond comparisons since we opened from a candle lit Parisian cellar bar to your Nan’s old kitchen! Where she tasted wine, these people detected not only complex flavor profiles, but entire histories and geographies.

In his column and his book, How to Love Wine: A Memoir and a Manifesto, Asimov devoted his career to making wine more accessible and helping his readers embark on a journey of their own. The book is a fascinating and humorous look into the world of wine and the people who are obsessed with it. Bosker certainly brings a fresh perspective to wine, and shakes up some of the conventions that have gone stale. We use sustainable meats, dairy, and produce as the building blocks of our modern California cuisine.The book also showcases the variety of personalities and motivations of people who are attracted to the profession. She tells of the experiences she had honing her tasting skills while also dishing out some juicy bits about swanky NYC restaurants and the service industry. This is one of the most informative books that I have read this year, as well as one of the best written.

In the last few years, we’ve kind of created a cult of the sommelier in this country,” Asimov told me recently over coffee. The Kitchen Confidential of wine: Read this book, and you’ll never be intimidated by wine—or wine snobs—again.

Chinese classes and a lot of flashcards with Chinese characters, foreshadowing the wine journey to be undertaken a decade later.

If Black Beauty was a wine, it would be that wine,” was how she said she would have sold it at Terroir. Funny, counter intuitive, and compulsively readable, Cork Dork illuminates not only the complex web of wine production and consumption, but how tasting better can change our brains and help us live better. Both an entry-level guide to the ever-growing business of wine and a masterclass in the strange, immensely skilled fanatics who make it their life’s work. And one of the things that I hope to do with the book is to show people how to taste for themselves, because I think that is a much stronger foundation to create thoughtful drinkers than to say, ‘This is good wine, and this isn’t. She has a WSET Level 2 certification in wine, along with a degree in environmental engineering and an MBA.To compliment our wines we serve a cheese and charcuterie board, which have been carefully curated for your enjoyment. When you read the book as a love song to the cult of the sommelier, rather than a demystification of wine, the New York Times op-ed makes more sense.
