SOMM takes you through the world of sommeliers, including what it all entails to be one. The doc then focuses on a fairly diverse group of guys who are all studying to earn their Master Sommelier accreditation (the highest achievement for sommeliers).
This documentary is well put together and very interesting — even for those who aren’t wine lovers. Following around the group of guys who are ‘training’ for the Master Sommelier is quite entertaining. The personalities of the guys are fairly diverse and thus they each have their own way to prepare themselves for the test.
The documentary includes them going through the test and anxiously awaiting the results.
A strong 4/5.
