We’re very excited about our special installment of The Art of Wine & Food taking place next Thursday, August 22nd! This month’s event will feature a screening of the film SOMM which provides a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into the mysterious world of The Court of Master Sommeliers.
In the film, four men will do anything to pass the most difficult test you’ve NEVER heard of: the daunting 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.
Following the film guests will enjoy a wine and food tasting featuring the delicious cuisine of Hugh’s Catering and fabulous wines from our wine sponsor, Southern Wine and Spirits. As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also have two very special guests on hand for a Q&A session, Master Sommelier, Brian Koziol and Master Sommelier Candidate, Sandra Wauquier. Bring your best wine questions for them!
Cost for this special event is $50 per person which includes the film & wine tasting. Reservations are required and seating is limited. To RSVP, click here, or contact Gail Vilone at 954-262-0249. Hope to see you there!
