If you know me, not even well, you know I love wine. LOVE wine. My good friend Lizzy had a wine tasting for her birthday a few years ago. It was so much fun and I highly recommend it for your next party. I tied for first place that night. That is, until I had a final taste-off with the other winner. I think I’d had quite a bit of wine by this point and failed pretty miserably. Anyway, I have a lot of respect for sommeliers. It’s not easy. I can’t believe the vast knowledge they must possess and of course the refined palate they must have. I came across the following preview for Somm, a documentary following four sommeliers hoping to pass the Master Sommelier exam. I had no idea that this exam has one of the lowest pass rates in the world. It looks fascinating. You can bet I’ll watch it while enjoying a nice glass of Pinot Noir. Cheers!
