The evening benefits The Denver Post Foundation, Metropolitan State University of Denver and the Colorado Restaurant Association Education Foundation. The highly anticipated film, SOMM, is a never-before-seen look inside the world of wine that most people know next to nothing about. The film takes viewers on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into a mysterious world – the Court of Master Sommeliers and the massively intimidating Master Sommelier exam. Three days following its Denver premiere, on Friday, June 28th, SOMM will begin its theatrical run at the Sie FilmCenter.
The Denver premiere of SOMM will begin at 5:30pm with a reception featuring wine pairings selected by Jay Fletcher, MS, Executive Director of Fine Wine for Southern Wine & Spirits of Colorado. Additional Master Sommeliers including Damon Ornowski, MS, Vin Divino and Sabato Sagaria, MS, The Little Nell and one of the sommeliers featured in the film, will be on hand mingling with the crowd and answering any questions. The film will be shown at 7:00pm and immediately following the screening there will be a Q&A session with Jay Fletcher, MS, Damon Ornowski, MS and Sabato Sagaria, MS.
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.
