SOMM: VIP Wine Night and Documentary Screening At The Rio Theatre – June 11th

29 May


The Rio Theatre, 1660 East Broadway, is presenting their first ever wine tasting along with the screening of the highly-anticipated documentary SOMM.  This debut film by director Jason Wise explores the “massively intimidating” Master Sommerlier Exam. This film will take you into the mysterious world of the Court of Master Sommeliers. 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.  Following the screening, a lively and entertaining Q&A is to follow which will include SOMM’s director Jason Wise attending via Skype along with an expert wine panel featuring Westender Vancouver’s wine columnist, Kurtis Kolt, Advanced Sommelier candidate Robert Stelmachuk and Shane Taylor, Assistant Wine Director at Blue Water Care + Raw Bar.   This VIP event gets underway at 7:00 p.m. on June 11th.  Tickets for the wine tasting and film screening are available online in advance for $25.00, or $30.00 at the door. Tickets for the screening only are available online for $12.00 or at the door  for $15.00. Movie screening and Q &A gets underway at 8:30 p.m.
