As you may know, I'm more of a cocktail guy. It's not that I don't like wine, I just don't know that much about it. I can tell the reds from the whites, but that's about where my knowledge leaves off. What I do love is a well done subculuture documentary - and I found one in "Somm." This film is about the hardest test you've never heard of (big up to T. Price), and follows four individuals as they put their lives on hold to study for, and test to join the ranks of Master Sommelier, a distinction held by only 200 people on our planet. You can't write characters like these, and that's why documentaries will always amaze and inspire me. Check out the trailer on YouTube and/or the full feature on Netflix Instant. And then pour yourself a glass of wine.
