Bianca Bosker  Writer. Ex-Cellar Rat. Author of Cork Dork (Penguin Books, 3/28/17. pre-order now🙏🏻!)

what do you #pairdevil with a book launch?! CORK DORK is officially OUT, and I'm ready to pop every 🍾 because I am so excited to share it you all. Buy your copy now, stop by a book talk/tasting to say hi (check for the schedule), + please share the #corkdorkbook love generously. Thank you all for your enthusiasm, support, and ❤️. So much ❤️. I appreciate it, and each and every one of you, more than I can say. 🍷👹

Friends! I'll be doing a #pairdevil double-header LIVE at 1.30pm ET today on Facebook Live, featuring an iconic NYC snack and a comfort food abonimation everyone eats but won't admit to. Come join (just head to my Facebook profile page) and leave questions if you have them. See you soon.. 🍷👹

I interrupt the regularly scheduled wine programming for...concrete. Specifically, my story on concrete maestro+god of architecture Tadao Ando, out in @theatlantic on newsstands/sidewalks now! (To get the significance of the 🚬read the story:

Detox meets Retox. Matcha-fueled book exchange with @cleanfooddirtycity (whose #cfdccookbook just launched!) #corkdork

Im thrilled, period: CORK DORK is reviewed on the front page of @newyorktimes Arts and it is a WINNER: “When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the 'Kitchen Confidential' of the wine world, she’s not wrong though Bill Buford’s 'Heat& #39; is probably a shade closer to this book’s sensibility and heart...Bosker’s journey into this sodden universe is thrilling, and she tells her story with gonzo élan.” Thank you, Jennifer Senior. This line nails it: “The real miracle is that Bosker was sober enough to write it." 🍾 (and in bio. Or pick up the 🗞!)

My NYT story seems to have convinced some people I only eat chemicals but no! #pairdevil can salad too. I've been on a German Pinot Noir bender, and this Stein + Sweetgreen is 👍. German Pinots can be a hunt but they're worth it--moodier/ smokier than Oregon Pinots, but with lovely fruit. Guaranteed to cure your weltschmerz ("world pain."of course that word exists in 🇩🇪). 🍷👹tagged places that carry it/label closeup in my Insta story

in honor of @real_simple featuring Cork Dork as one of "5 Books that Won't Dissapoint," my own short list of 5 books that inspired, dazzled, and gave me courage while writing. Thanks @real_simple for including me among such incredible authors + calling Cork Dork "A funny, fascinating adventure for anyone who has ever dreamed of a radical career switch." 👏@juliebuntin, @ciaosamin, Stephanie Watts Powell + Elizabeth Strout! An incredible reading list

An excerpt from CORK DORK is out in your @newyorktimes Sunday Review! Alternate title: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Unnatural Wine. It's generating some great (+ heated) conversations around wine--how we encourage thoughtful drinking, what defines quality, and much more. Looking forward to continuing the discussion...Thanks to all those who've chimed in.

Pure #pairdevil pleasure: dim sum from Golden Unicorn with Hermann J. Weimer Riesling from the Empire State. Delicate like a shrimp dumpling, ripe like a pork bun, refreshing enough you can eat seconds of siu mai. This one is dry (meaning no sugar) but semi-dry (with a breath of sweetness) would be 👌too. Everything I love in one place. 🍷👹tagged places that carry it/label close-up in my Insta story

@laurenomics' fantastic new @Voguemagazine piece about my taste training, smell studying, and how any of us can hone our senses is out and you should read it! Link in bio ☝️. Here, an outtake from my pre-somm philistine days and closest I can get to living up to "swanlike& #34;

My last memory of my last #LaPaulee . Not pictured: piles of black truffle, the guy who spent the night introducing me as his "future ex-wife"

Since tonight's the last night of the Burgundy bacchanal #LaPaulee--& #34;the kind of thing that starts revolutions in countries"--an outtake of somms crowdsurfing on chefs from my drunken night there. Let's just say that chapter of my book is called "The Orgy." 👅
