Review: Somm

Like wine? You'll love Somm, a 2012 documentary about four young men, each trying to become a Master Sommelier.

Maybe you just want to learn more about wine and how someone can taste a wine and describe it in such eloquent terms. Then this film will teach you.

Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back, and prepare to be awestruck.

Jaw Dropping Quest

Somm is a compelling documentary that will make your jaw drop as you follow the year-long journey of these wine stewards as they attempt to pass the Master Sommelier Exam, one of the world's most-difficult tests.

To become a professional certified sommelier, one must possess a combination of experience, training, formal education, classes and examinations. To become a Master Sommelier, a goal attained by only 214 people around the world by the end of 2013, is an amazing feat, as you will see when viewing this documentary.

Taste, Discern, Describe

Somm will also teach you how to taste a wine--how to distinguish the various taste elements (this, not that kind of narrowing of different taste profiles)--and how to describe what your mouth tells you so others can know what it tastes like.

Directed, written, and produced by Jason Wise, with Michelle Branch, Story Producer; William Fowler, Executive Producer; Jackson Myers, Producer; and Christina Tucker, Producer, this film is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Takeaway Truth

Want to polish up those social graces? Watch Somm. Have a glass of wine as you watch.
