Join us for an evening of wine tasting with Hannah Crosbie as she talks about her new book Corker, the go-to guide that matches wine with life’s important (and unimportant) events.

Wine personality, broadcaster and writer Hannah Crosbie is on a mission to demystify the world of wine. Hannah is one of the most exciting voices in wine today and is giving the traditional wine book an overhaul. Inspired by the most frequently asked questions from her followers, Corker is a fresh and relevant guide that pairs wine with life’s important (and unimportant) events.

Understanding that how and what we drink is ultimately rooted in occasion, Hannah brings her unique perspective to the page, arming readers with the confidence to navigate any wine list, bottle shop or supermarket aisle. What bottle do you buy the first time you meet the in-laws? What do you order on a date if it’s going well? If it’s not going well? What should you drink on a plane? Pairing sage advice and tongue in-cheek humour, Corker is a wine book that celebrates the everyday drinking and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

This is a guide for wine novices staring nonplussed at supermarket shelf, as well as wine lovers who might already know their Chablis from their Chenin, but still need some inspiration when picking the
best bottle for their budget and the occasion. With a glossary of key terms as well as seasonal recommendations – from the first summer barbecue through to the festive period – Corker is the accessible go-to guide for a new generation of wine drinkers.

An approachable and informal guide to wine from Sunday Brunch’s new wine expert Hannah Crosbie, aka ‘the Nigella of Wine’.

We are delighted to be partnering with Momentum Wines for this event and look forward to welcoming Hannah Crosbie to Oswestry for some ‘deeply unserious’ wine tasting in the bookshop!
