SOMM (slang for “sommelier”) follows four talented young sommeliers as they cram for the grueling, notoriously difficult Master Sommelier exam. The exam – a test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world – covers everything to do with the pairing of wine and food on a global level. In addition to its four engaging subjects, SOMM also includes appearances and enlightening commentary from a who’s who of top food and wine personalities, including sommelier Rajat Parr, chef Michael Mina, winemaker Bo Barrett, wine legend Fred Dame, and many others.
Access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam.... Until now. The film world premiered at the 2012 Napa Valley Film Festival, to a standing ovation. SOMM is directed by Jason Wise and distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
"The Master Sommelier exam is the hardest exam you've never heard of!," said Whitney Post of Jacob Liquor. "Join the wine guys of Jacob Liquor as they lead you through the intensive wine evaluation process used to determine the climate, grape varietal, vintage, region, country and quality for the blind tasting portion of the exam."
