SOMM takes the viewer on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into a mysterious world - the Court of Master Sommeliers and the massively intimidating Master Sommelier Exam. The Court of Master Sommeliers is one of the world's most prestigious, secretive, and exclusive organizations. Since its inception almost 40 years ago, less than 200 candidates have reached the exalted Master level. The exam covers literally every nuance of the world of wine, spirits and cigars. Those who have passed have put at risk their personal lives, their well- being, and often their sanity to pull it off. Shrouded in secrecy, 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 think you know about wine? SOMM will make you think again. SOMM takes you on the ultimate insider's tour into a world of obsession, hope, and friendship in red, blanc and sometimes rose. About Keith Goldston, Master Sommelier: Born and raised in Napa Valley, Keith Goldston is one of the world's youngest Master Sommeliers and the proud recipient of the illustrious Krug Cup trophy. His "Have Corkscrew - Will Travel" attitude has found him making sake in Japan, judging wine competitions and teaching wine classes in Korea and China, opening wine bars in India, chasing kangaroos in Australia, crossing the Andes in search of great wine, working for the Culinary Institute of America, as well as teaching and examining for the Court of Master Sommeliers. He is currently wine director at Bryan Voltaggio's RANGE. __________ ANGELIKA FILM CENTER & CAFE 2911 DISTRICT AVE @ LEE HWY & GALLOWS RD | FAIRFAX, VA 22031 www.AngelikaFilmCenter.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
