Tips for Smelling Wine with Cork Dork Author Bianca Bosker
Air Date: Wednesday, June 21st 2023
How does someone go from being a tech editor to quitting their job and becoming an expert sommelier?
That’s exactly what today's guest, Bianca Bosker certified sommelier, award-winning journalist and author of Cork Dork did!
Bianca takes us through her journey starting from that moment when she decided she wanted to be a part of the wine world and here’s a hint - it may have had to do with a wine drinking competition! Bianca also dives into the olfactory senses (aka your sniffer!) and teaches us how to train your sense of smell to build strong skills to help you describe your wine as well as some of the myths that surround smells that are associated with wine.
And you won’t want to miss when Bianca shares what inspired her to write her book Cork Dork or why she thinks that tasting notes have a lot of BS to them!
Bianca’s book Cork Dork was the first wine book I read and was what inspired me to dive deeper and learn everything I could about wine! Are you ready to be inspired to learn more? Grab your favorite glass of wine and press play!
