A Documentary Worth Seeing: SOMM

I’m stoked to tell you about a new documentary in work called SOMM. It’s a story of four sommeliers attempting to pass the Master Sommelier exam, a test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world. The exam covers literally anything having to do with the entire world of wine and that is just the beginning. 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 took two years and six countries of filming to produce under the direction of Jason Wise, known to film a wide variety of subject matters which deliver distinctly human stories. Jason has logged many hours shooting aerial photography for major networks and TV programs including the popular Emmy Awards, as well as hundreds of hours shooting underwater footage.

Jason expects SOMM to premiere in April, but there is a very good chance screenings will happen earlier. Let’s hope this film makes it to nationwide theaters! I, for one, can’t wait to see it.
