Corked: A Memoir free pdf Meet Kathryn Borel, absurd bon vivant and daughter of duty. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she doesn't get it when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned, oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him. So, she proposes a drunken father-daughter road trip. As they drive through the country, meeting with vintners, touring vineyards, laughing, screaming, panicking and fighting, they watch the birth, development and maturation of a very special part of their relationship: the ability to connect over wine. This is the uncensored account of their tour through the great wine regions of France.
