One-Night-Only Screening of SOMM Documentary at Vic Theatre, June 24

Set aside your evening, Monday, June 24, for EAT Magazine’s screening of SOMM: an intriguing, intense documentary on attaining the highest level of Sommelier achievement. This SOMM event decants both knowledge and pleasure—first with a great movie; then your evening can continue with a VIP wine and cheese reception at Chateau Victoria’s Vista 18 featuring a gathering of dedicated sommeliers to share their experience and expertise.
Here’s a synopsis of the movie:
Four men will do anything to pass the most difficult test you’ve NEVER heard of… 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 in 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, rosé.
The Post-Movie Reception
All that mystery, intrigue, and wine tasting is sure to whet your appetite for more. A ticket to the Vista 18 VIP Reception afterwards is a great way to continue your evening. Sampling wine, cheese, and charcuterie while enjoying lively conversation and stunning views over the city is a wonderful way to end a “movie night.”
