The Napa Valley Film Festival is known for many subtle nuances that make it a great fest, but it’s hard to ignore what its locale is overwhelmingly known for: WINE! In honor of that and the merit of the film their 2012 installment will be opening with the documentary SOMM which focuses on four Sommeliers and their seemingly impossible challenge: obtaining the Master Sommelier (or Master of Wine) diploma.
A little more about the film:
Somm is the story of four Sommeliers attempting to pass the Prestigious 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. How much do you know about wine?
