Professional journalist and amateur wine drinker Bianca Bosker do not know much about wine until she discovered the world of the elite sommeliers who devote their lives to the search for flavor.Surprised by their fervour and apparently superhuman sensory powers, she decided to find out what drove their obsession, and whether she could also become a “ork cork”.And to push the boundaries of curiosity, humour and a good dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside tasting groups metro, exclusive restaurants in New York City, California, the mass market of wine factories and even a neuroscientist from the firm machine that she tries to answer most of the haunting question: What is the big deal on wine?Funny, contrary to intuition and compulsive and legible, Liege Dork not only illuminates wine production and consumption, but also shows how cultivating our taste buds can have enormous repercussions on our brains and our lives.
