While on a flight today I had the chance to check out a movie I hadn’t heard of, on a topic I love – wine! The name — Somm.

It’s about four sommeliers who attempt to pass the (prestigious) Master Sommelier exam, a test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world. The movie’s about 90 minutes and goes through their lives while they study for the test and highlights other somms (that’s what they are, don’t use that multi-syllabic word, it’s old-school in their world).

After taking the WSET course it was so fun/interesting to watch this and understand a tiny bit what they were going through. Apparently some people take this test many times and don’t pass. There are very few Master Sommeliers in the world.

Totally check out this movie of you have 90 minutes to spare.

Cheers to the MS and happy holidays!
