The Napa Valley Film Festival will kick off with the world premiere of the documentary feature film SOMM on Wednesday, November 7, 2012. SOMM (slang for "sommelier") follows four talented young sommeliers as they cram for the grueling, notoriously difficult Master Sommelier exam.  The exam - a test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world - covers everything to do with the pairing of wine and food on a global level.

 "We are honored to host the world premiere of SOMM," said Marc Lhormer, Executive & Artistic Director of the Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF).  "Not only is the content a perfect fit for the food and wine-obsessed culture of Napa Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, but the film itself is a tremendously well-executed, hilarious and compelling thrill ride of a documentary that will appeal to a broad movie-going audience.

In addition to its four engaging subjects, SOMM also includes appearances and enlightening commentary from a who's who of top food and wine personalities, including sommelier Rajat Parr, chef Michael Mina, winemaker Bo Barrett, wine legend Fred Dame, and many others.
NVFF Passholders will have multiple opportunities to see SOMM, and to meet the filmmakers and featured sommeliers who will attend the festival's screenings and related special events.  SOMM's filmmakers and starring somms will also be special guests at the spectacular Festival Gala at Robert Mondavi Winery on Thursday, November 8.  Specific screening times, locations and many more extraordinary food & wine events celebrating SOMM will be announced, along with the entire NVFF programming schedule, on October 1, 2012.  

As with all Napa Valley Film Festival presentations, buying a Festival Pass, Pass Plus or joining the Patron Circle are the best ways to enjoy SOMM's screenings and events.
