Tickets £15 – £25 available from Ryedale Book Festival

Peter Stafford-Bow, author and former wine executive, will be reading from his recently-published novel Corkscrew: the highly improbable, but occasionally true, tale of a professional wine buyer, a satire set in the world of supermarket wine buying. Corkscrew is based on Peter’s twenty-year career purchasing wines for the world’s largest retailers.

The readings will be accompanied by a tutored tasting, conducted by Peter himself, featuring an exquisitely curated selection of wines procured from local wine merchant Derventio Wines.

The event is hosted by David Walsh and Paul Tate-Smith

Corkscrew includes adult themes and the serving of alcohol, so the organisers regret this event is unsuitable for under-18s, teetotallers or the unworldly!

One of the funniest books I have read in ages”

“This is a comedy about human being that will ring true even if you don’t know your Claret from your Chablis”
